wet grey sky amidst summer greens..............

I have been away in lovely Scotland the weather was cold and windy but not to much rain. I am well rested and ready to commence sewing everything has now emerged golden and sparkly from the kilns so it is all down to the needle and thread , upholstery tacks and feathers. Before Lola and I set off in waterproofs for our afternoon amble I thought I would quickly update news and photographs. I will add more as each gets completed  but for now its rabbit in her woolly shrug braving the elements to find sufficient greenery for her pie...

American blue skies and birds singing.....

and it makes one feel so happy. You can just begin to feel its almost Summer and most definately Spring. When taking Lola for a walk I have been watching the birds in the woods and saw a fly catcher and a nuthatch the other day. Its so joyous to see these small creatures bobbing in and out of hedges and as the leaves aren't out yet you can get a clear view if you stand and watch. I think I like to watch as its so relaxing when loading kilns and glazing , juggling time schedules gets quite frantic ! Because everything is being fired at the moment I have been quite neglectful I do apologise. So whilst waiting for kiln to cool down I thought i would find something to show you . A mouse on wheels ready to escape the evil clutches of Mr Obediah the cat and three rabbits awaiting their frocks and stoles ready for Winter !

wondering when they get to join the others

pretty enough to be on her own !
