Chucky eggs!

Just to show you some of the things I have been getting up to. I was going to list them on Ebay but I am very disappointed with them at the moment, so if anyone is interested in one they are £3.75 (P&P inc), they would make great Easter gifts instead of the usually eggs.
Have a good weekend, what with this glorious weather.

Bye Bye Nan Nan!

I don't want this post to be all doom & gloom as my Nan Nan was not that kind of person. My Nan passed away with my Mum & Auntie by her side on Thursday the 5th March. The funeral was last Friday and it was a little sad, but at the same time very nice!

The most important thing to me was that my Mum was OK, and surprisingly she is, she keeps having a little cry, but overall I think it has come as a bit of a relief!

Any way I have been very busy in my studio, my 1st show is on the 5th April at Weirlow Hall Farm in Sheffield.

Catch up soon

PS thank you for all your kind words on my last post x

Ta Da!

At last on Saturday the carpet was fitted at 11 O Clock and by 12 O Clock we were beginning to build up all the furniture. My sister took little dear away for the afternoon which meant we could really get stuck in to putting my plans into action for how I wanted MY studio to look. Hubbo even commented how well thought out everything was, I did not tell him that I had been planning this out in my head for over a year now!
I had to give in to the fact that little dear would have to come into here at times or I would not ever get in there, so we bought her a desk and a pop up tent to play in!
It is not completely finished as I have to put up the blinds that I have made, hubbo has got to make my cutting table and I have got to strip down my bargain 1950's kitchen cupboard that I won on Ebay a couple of months ago.
Sorry I have not been around for a few weeks there has been a lot going on as well as getting my studio ready. I have been organising the refurbishment of the flat at Keswick which has turned into a bit of a rush as we have someone in on the 26th of March.
Also my lovely Nan who is in a home is sadly fading away, which is heart braking to see, my Mum is been so strong. I made the decision last week not to visit her anymore as it upsets me too much as she has changed so much, and I don't want to have this image in my head of someone who doesn't remind me of my Nan.
Hope to catch up soon of I can tear myself away from my new playroom!!!!!!
