A big thank you to everyone who braved the weather to visit our open house! Elizabeth I had a great day visiting with everyone.
For those who couldn’t make it- here’s what you missed!
We had my big work table covered with Elizabeth’s Farmwurx ceramics , there were lots of mugs, bowls and treasures of all kinds. And my favourite Word Ware bowls… with their sometimes cheeky saying about for and eating. They are on the right hand side of the image below. If you see anything you can’t live without contact Elizabeth.
Those are my Imprint scarves hanging in the background- or at least the two that were left! It was so busy when we first opened I completely forgot to take any images…I know!I know! I do it all the time.
Our “flight of fancy” managed to survive the rain and damp, which is no mean feat when you consider the paper our birds are made of are reclaimed outcasts from the pulp mill. The paper itself is very stiff and difficult to work with -until it gets wet- or even thinks about getting wet- then it turns to mush!
“flight of fancy” ( I love this definition – “an idea which shows a lot of imagination but which is not practical or useful in real situations”) was hanging in the greenhouse- not the driest of places at the best of times but as you can see- it was raining, which made the definition really ring true!
As I mentioned above – and always seem to be saying – it’s been raining here. Ned and I have managed a few walks by the river but there’s been no swimming- he would be swept away!
Bye for now, Catherine
