Well done, apart from the pens it looks very much like my collection which has now thankfully all been posted.

Yes it is good to have it all done,

Get back to turning stuff that I like now :D :D :D

The green and wetter end of the M4.
very nice, going to be some happy recipients i suspect.
is that them iridescent paints on the small bowls in the foreground or are they inlaid with something?

Hi Nev, yes they are iridescent paints that I blagged from Mick Hanbury at the York show, been having a little fun with them. I also have had a lark with gold leaf and some small sparkley bits of leaf that I had from Niel, I think its Niel? the fun pryo and coloring guy when hem came to demonstrate at our club but they went before I took photos.

You are so right about getting back to what you like turning. This is the first Christmas I have made presents for almost everyone and I doubt if I will do the same again. As it is a hobby only for me I like to put a piece of wood on the lathe and see what happens - often not what I first thought.

On the other hand I think there will be a lot of pleased recipients.
