I have been a making! I had a splurge of creative energy, probably because I had some great news and was accepted as a Maker with madebyhandonline The brainchild of two lovely ladies, Sarah James and Katie Honnor from Bovey Tracey, Devon... bringing together a community of makers, to promote the crafts industry and to sell directly online. There is a list of makers and I am on the third page if you fancy a butchers. There are some very fine wares, some of which are made by the wonderful jennifer collier
Bought this book from Oxfam Bookshop for £2 and it was the best £2 I have spent in a very long time...inspiration, inspiration, inspiration, pages of it...

Holly, our daughter has to visit an Exhibition at Alexandra Palace, London tomorrow (Sunday), so the current husband and I are using the opportunity to drop her off and then carry onto the foundling museum for the Threads of Feeling Exhibition. I will post asap.
Last but certainly not least, I had to show you Wonkey Donkey, who has recently come to stay! When wound up, his head nods and his tails spins, very fast....I adore him.
