Tired but satisfied

As predicted, the Bank holiday weekend was very busy, but also very rewarding.

Thrive's Open Day was a tremendous success for both Thrive and myself, helped by sunshine most of the day and great live music in the garden which created a lovely relaxed atmosphere and made everyone smile. Definitely the best event that I have attended at Thrive to date.

My newest work was very well received; the bird feeders 'flew' off my stall, the yarn bowls were snapped up and I could have sold several of the new triple bowl sets on a platter. I am now busily making more of all these items, especially the yarn bowls which have been requested by the local Knit 'n' Natter group.

The exhibition with West Forest Potters as part of the Henley Arts Trail was well received by all the visitors, not so many sales, but then I was trying to sell my more expensive pieces. My water feature has now found a new home, where I hope it will give lots of pleasure, I certainly enjoyed making it.

  1. Wendy, if you are not already aware there is a petition being put together to persuade the UK government not to reclassify the craft industry as 'non creative.' Please take a look at the following link for more.
    Thought you might be interested.
