It was a great party!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Just got in from the studios. Sat in the garden with my lovely hubby and the blackbirds, and had a nice cuppa. You can’t beat a good strong cup off Yorkshire tea, can you? Thank you so much if you watched and invested in Clarity this weekend. The shoes by Cherry are pretty exquisite, they really are. Very Christmas – Not Christmas! Ran out of time this morning with the parchment project, so as…

A Throwdown and a 21st…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Somebody dropped out of Saturday’s pottery throwdown at the last minute – so guess who stepped in?! Didn’t have to be asked twice! Can’t get enough of it !! So before the TV Marathon on HOCHANDA tomorrow, I went off to throw a few pots and try to go a bit taller. I’m getting very good at little olive bowls, but I wouldn’t mind expanding into a little fruit bowl! Last time I tried…

I’ve has just about enough of this bleep bleep shoe….

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Finally we have completed our prep for Sunday TV – and with a day to spare! What a caper! We have been working with the most exquisite stamps illustrated by Cherry Green, and just got totally engrossed in them. We don’t usually spend 4 days prepping! But Paul and I have actually had a blast. It’s certainly been a learning curve with a few things. You know when you know how to do something,…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. And thanks for watching Tina’s Pergamano shows if you did, and thanks for your custom, if you decided what we had on offer  was for you xxx Tina did a wonderful job as always, and here is a step by step which I blogged a while ago now, when these clever snowflake duet plates first appeared.

Tina and The Pergamano Shows Tomorrow

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Another great day in Prepland. Even got to pottery today, for a very cool session on the “slate vase”. More will be revealed… But to the prep. It’s a bauble thing from 2-4pm on Sunday. Very beautiful stencil set of mini baubles. So I decided, in the spirit of Christmas, we need a branch to hang our samples from. Wasted an age looking for the secateurs (aka pruning scissors), then laboriously cut a branch…
