Thanks for popping in.
Baby plates galore! Linda Williams has design a wonderful collection of Baby Plates for all our Groovi friends. They will work sooooo beautifully with those delicate lace grid duets! I just wish I had more time – but you know what they say: be careful what you wish for!
So while Paul wings his way up to the TV Studios, ready for this evening’s launch at 6pm, let’s look at these superb A5sq. plates, which are jam packed with goodness!
And wait till you see the art samples created by the Groovi Team.
E X Q U I S I T E
Actually, let me tell you a little story….years ago, we were at the NEC and I was dashing to the loo across the far side of the hall. In the middle, there was a huge open area, with several tables and demonstrators. It was the Pergamano Area. Anyway, I shot through it because it was the fasted route to the ladies – but I stopped in my tracks when I saw an incredibly delicate, beautiful little 3-D Pram, on display. I took a minute to soak up the beauty of it, the intricacy. There was a tall blonde lady standing behind the table. “Is this your artwork?” I asked her. “It is,” she responded , with a gentle Welsh accent. So we had a little chat, I complimented her on her fabulous art, and then dashed on to the loo.
A couple of hours later, the same tall, blonde lady came to the Clarity Stand with a book. “This is a gift for you,” she said. “It has got the patterns for the pram and the crib in it that you liked so much. I hope you enjoy it” As you can imagine, it was very gratefully received. What a kind lady! I thought. Linda Williams.
Now fast forward several years, and that same lady is my closest friend – actually more like the sister I never had. And the Groovi plates which my other close friend Paul is presenting on TV today, are derived from those original Pergamano patterns. I asked Linda if she could turn them into Groovi art for us, so that more of us might turn our hand to that oh-so-delicate art. Mmmm. Now you know the rest of the story. That’s how I met Linda Williams. And I remember the occasion as if it were yesterday.
There’s another brand new Groovi plate to look out for on the counter this evening: the large scallop nests with the new Aphabet. The scallops are excellent for larger art, and the ABC? It is absolutely perfect for happy, young, sweet art. Well, actually, it’s just absolutely perfect. Thanks Jim xx
Anyway. Time for POTTERY!!!!! Woohoo!!!!
