And then I would blog everyday instead of hibernating for two months til the sun came out again. Sorry people!!
And today, here, is really the first day it has truly felt like Spring. Glorious sunshine, milky blue skies, but still a bit nippy. Not only did I emerge from beneath my quilt today, but I even ventured outdoors for a long walk and took this photo to prove it!
I have been having a well-earned break from the pottery, but the orders are starting to come in now, so I must get back in the studio and crack on.
I have not been completely pot-free though. This is a plate I made for my lovely Aunty's 80th birthday in January. Regular readers know how much I enjoy making these, and it's all the more special when the person is someone close to you.
|The wet clay stage - impressing lace flowers into the border.|
|Once fired, and glazing almost complete, ready for second firing.|
|And Hey Presto! Out of the second firing and looking good.|
|My Aunty likes baking!|
|And staying in her caravan by the sea!|
The seaside here is Bridlington on the East coast where I spent many a childhood summer holiday and so in turn did my children.
See! I'm looking forward to Summer already, now that I've come out of hibernation!
Now - I shall pay a much belated visit to all your blogs to see what you've been up to.
