You may remember that in the past with these kind of personal pieces, I've been asked to put racehorses, tortoises, packs of playing cards, piles of books, you name it, onto them.
But this was just .... sunflowers.
Nice and easy and straightforward.
I spoke too soon though. The next one was a Christening plate and they wanted ..... Dogs! Not just any dogs. Their dogs - to be done from photos of their dogs!
I have done dogs before, and I can tell you, they are not as easy as sunflowers! They ordered Olympic Rings and the County symbol for Essex too, but they were fairly easy.
But dogs! Why do I keep getting asked to do dogs?
And, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I am .... how shall we put it ..... not really much of a dog-lover.
There. I've said it! So shoot me. I do know that in this country, that's not a popular thing to say.
I'll stick to creating them out of clay for now!
