It’s been a busy week for me in the workshop – I’ve got work in progress all over the place! (Photos to follow soon). I’m currently making loads of sets of coasters, I need to send 14 sets down to Devon at the end of the month for the ‘Make‘ exhibition, plus I need more to list on my website and also for stock at craft fairs.
I’m also working on some custom orders, including butterfly plaques for a shop, a vase with personalised trailed wording engraved around the exterior, and a panelled ceramic wall hanging using the customers chosen colours and textures.
On top of all of this making, I’ve got a busy weekend ahead. We are having a house warming party on Saturday (better late than never), so I’ve got lots of yummy food to prepare!
I can’t wait to see the bulbs emerging from the ground, the leaves on the trees starting to grow bright and green, and the sound of newborn lambs in fields everywhere. There is a nearby dairy farm that we visit every year during lambing season, its always exciting to see if we can spot any being born in the barns.
I did like the periods of snow while it lasted, but I have to admit I got fed up with driving in it. Or should I say not being able to drive in it – My house is at the bottom of a hill so no cars could drive up! I’m glad we have seasons, its nice for the change when you start getting fed up of the weather. I’ve already noticed the evenings are starting to stay lighter earlier.

This brought back memories, I hadn’t made snowflakes for years. I decided to decorate the windows with them. Molly seems impressed!
Check out this snowflake curtain by Lupin, it’s amazing! I didn’t have the patience to get that far You can find out how and why she made it here.
I thought it was snowing the other day after a quick glimpse out of the window, but it was leaves falling from the trees! I can’t wait til Christmas, its my favourite time of year. I’ve made these tree decorations and glazed them with a shiny red glaze, and a volcanic crater glaze which looks a bit like snow. I kept to simple shapes – just trees and stars.
I’m hoping to sell my new handmade decorations at the craft fairs I’m doing leading up to Christmas, and I’ll also list some in my online shops.
I’ve hung the decorations on this useful stand that I’ve covered in tinsel, I think it looks quite effective.
