I fired a couple of plates last month before the Geffrye show that I got finished before I realised that on one I had missed a letter ‘S’ out and on another the whole word ‘end’. What a wally. Not sure if they are ones that I had put pictures up of. I need an editor.
Mad tree, mad wiggly line and not normal writing that I think I like but needs some practice.
I threw tea-light holders last week and decorated them and there were also candle sticks, these were the ones that I had been struggling a bit with, I think they are ok, not fabulous, they need practice too. They are hollow which is why I was struggling with them, I was looking at Paul Young’s candle sticks this weekend and they are solid which gives them a good weight, probably makes them safer.
Here is a pretty poor photo of my new pot acquisition from the weekend, it is a press moulded Mary W dish. The impressions around the edge are apparently the stamp that she first used when she started making pots with her initials on it which she found recently. Tis a good fun cockerel I thought.
There have been comments on here from a few new people recently, thank you and hope you are still reading. You won’t here anything from me for a few days now, we are off on a trip, a holiday! A very well earned break for both of us. It’s been a very busy year so far and we are both pretty shattered from one thing and another. See you soon.
PS Ron I have a huge hat collection, my favourite at the moment is still last years hat, a really lovely knitted one by my friend Kay Ribbens who lives up here in Galloway. She makes really great hats and I think she reads this blog so hi Kay! I’m taking it away with me so you might get a picture when I get back.
