dovegrey clouds.....

blanket this evening sky although it appears the sun is trying to filter through and the rain has gone away. Life is very hectic as  I gather everything together for a window display and exhibition at Cupola Art gallery Sheffield. A picket fence made, flag bunting at the ready, a lampshade chandalier to be gathered together  whilst Winter mountains have been replace by  Spring  quilted hills. celebrations are afoot as the Tour de France pedals into Yorkshire and hence the window will have a celebratory feel with champions cups on podiums , chickens evading sale, ducks and mice with wheels. Who the winner of the cup is , is yet to be decided but I thought I would share some bits and pieces with you first..

fluffy grey clouds drifting........

across a blue sky this Saturday morning. the sun appears and  warmth spreads like a lovely old blanket gently soothing and comforting. A sewing day  creating mountains with wheels and celebratory cups for an exhibition at Cupola Gallery Sheffield. A busy week ahead as two exhibition to sort out in one week is quite alot but work is heading south early on and so the end of the week will be all set of wheels and characters , flags and podiums!!  It has been such a lovely Summery week and the garden is full of colour with roses in full bloom that I felt you may enjoy a splash of colour today. Jugs full of memories , teapots  and fabrics to brighten ones soul.....

as evening draws to a close.....

the sky is clear tinged with a golden hue as the sun sets. June and many days passed soon the next month of Summer appears on the horizon. Ceramics are now spread out on the table awaiting their finishing touches of teaspoons and frills and buttons. A journey down south will see them established at Porthminster Gallery in St Ives, standing smart and looking forward to decorating a new home. Whilst characters wait for just a wee while longer to get outfits and trims and discover their special venue. Photographs have been taken and now its down to details so a sneaky peek of tea and all things associated ........
