Happiness is craft shaped

Hello to readers of the blog...I have finally worked out how to do this blogging thing!! but the most important thing to say is that I am so happy to be part of Fig and have found myself so full of ideas that I am trying to do half a dozen projects at once and the house looks like a bomb has hit it! my main concentration right now is preparation for a sale at the bicycle event in Queens Square on Sunday where I will be selling some items from my bike, including a re-print of the t-shirt design that my son drew 20 years ago!!! I will post some photos next week...might see you there

Let's here it for the girls

Yes we've been naughty, but we've also been very productive -
Jane's been getting to grips with her Gocco printer (not sure that's spelt correctly) and once she overcame the initial carbon printing hiccup, managed to rip out nearly 50 beautiful two-colour birdy prints.
She's been relegated to the cellar now because she moans about Radio Four, (too much talking on the channel for her liking), its got nothing to do with her needing more space and splattering ink all over the place.

Jemima has been experimenting with aluminium with wondrous results. She's ordered some inks to colour up her work so watch this space......

And I have been revisiting my childhood passion for all things mice.

Naughty figgers!

We have been very bad recently and have neglected our lovely blog! Anyway, we will now resolve all that and get blogging. The new girls will be under strict instruction and the old guard will be cracking the whip, never you fear.

In the meantime I've joined frombritainwithlove which is a gorgeous listing site for all things made in Britain - have a little look.

And I have been busy (honest) and I'm now making children's charm necklaces alongside all the other charm jewellery. Available here on notonthehighstreet, or in the shop.
