Summer Shenanigans...

Helaina and I have taken some time off and time apart this summer. My adventure took me to Abergavenny to The Green Man Festival.  Great music...great food... great company! 
Here is the Green Man...a HUGE sculpture that is then set on fire to celebrate the festival coming to an end...such a shame! There is also a sneaky peak of me amongst the bunting. Trying to tempt Helaina to join next years adventure. 
Helaina has been in France doing her own galavanting, I am sure she will have a few snaps to share.

Last week's work....

Here is just a small amount of work I posted last week, in a mad dash to finish things before I took sometime off.  These three pieces were all commisions and now have lovely new homes. 
The top piece, is of the beaded covers that used to be popular to cover milk and sugar, these reminded Lyn of her mother.
The middle piece ('Bringing the outside in') was for a lady who ordered from me at The Contemporary Craft Fair, in Bovey Tracey, she now has two pieces so she's a collector!
Another lucky collector is the owner of the tea tray, who was bought two of my pieces for her birthday (although no one knew this until the day!)  She apparently was so overjoyed she cried when she opened it, how lovely!
Now, I'm supposed to be on holiday....

Samantha and I did a little baking last Thursday - here we are making big buns (or cupcakes if that's your preferred name) for Amy's birthday.

Do not go on holiday

Our studio will be open on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September 2011 as part of HOST studio trail.
A must see...keep that weekend free!

The long reach nozzle phenomenon

I found this image today...I had forgotten about the necessity for long reach nozzles in the fairy dust collecting plight. 
I think studio 8 needs a appliance with a long reach nozzle....clean up Helaina's dust.
I shall have to make one...

I went to London zoo this weekend to see my (adopted) giraffe Ellish...  I'd like to think this is her, although this is unconfirmed.  Giraffes are my favourite animal, with their grace and elegance, and their beautiful eyelashes!  Samantha is a little obsessed with them too!

Samantha's bottom warming fairies...

Here is Samantha with her favourite fairies, before these two get posted off to new homes... she does love them dearly, and they will be sadly missed!
