Many years ago there was a childrens programme called "Worzle Gummidge" the scarcrow in this story had different heads for different activites, one for thinking, one for walking about etc...
Well I too feel like I have different heads,including :- My business head, which I use seldom and is a very poor fit,
My knitting and felting head which I have forgotten to take of in a very long time,
And my ceramic head which has been laying dusty and somewhat forgotten for far too long.
Saachi gallery site, about buying "Josa" a reclining nude made from terracotta clay.
I don't know if the sale will go through, but whatever happens I feel gratefull that it has reminded me to look again at my unfinished sculptures, and to fire up my kiln again and breath some life into the clay laying in the corner of my studio.
I have cleaned off my ceramic makers head fitted it and found it still very comfortable. So I have re -listed some more of my work in my Etsy shop.
It occured to me that my moongazing rabbits and hares do have a slightly Easter feel to them...

ll never forget my first Mothers Day, 16 years ago. Our daughter was only 3 months old. We were both sleep deprived, befuddled new parents, totaly in love with our first (and only) child. My darling husband had somehow managed to keep little'un quite so I had a wonderfull lie in untill nearly 8.ooam!
Not only that but he had decorated a chocolate swiss roll as a surprise for me. We had no car back then and a swiss roll was the only chocolatey cake he could find in the local shops at that time of day.
I sat in bed feeding my beautiful baby girl and eating cake, feeling like life could not get any better....
I never imagined 16 years later that I would have realised another dream and be using my creativity to make and sell my own bag designs, or that my wonderful daughter would be working with me at craftshows selling my work.

- . I love to create, always have... even as a child I was always up to my ears in fabric, yarn, paper and glue. So now I create bags, the process I use developed over time, and is still changing, each new wool or design presents it's own challenge. So I don't get bored. Craft Shows are so much fun,meeting folk, both customers and other crafters. I always get such a buzz when we are setting up and a plain old marquee or hall gets transformed into an arcade of interesting creations.
