Lately I’ve been making jugs…

I’ve also gone a bit brooch mad. You see, I’ve got a couple of sales this month and I really needed lots and lots of work in case people wanted to buy things!

The first sale was last Saturday and was for Rural Arts at the courthouse in Thirsk and I’ve been so busy getting ready for it I haven’t had time to post about it on here!

Sadly the sale was a bit of a washout with no-one really making many sales so it was a complete waste of my time. It seems that the organisers didn’t do much marketing for the event – there were only posters outside the venue for instance but none in the surrounding area to point people in our direction.

Needless to say I won’t be doing a sale at that venue again!

Anyway, I’m doing another one this Saturday but this is a much better venue – The National Centre for Craft and Design in Sleaford, Lincolnshire! You can visit their website here or their Facebook page here. There will be food and live music at this one as well as the lovely handmade goodies, so lots to see and do!

Just a few photos today of the wonderful local organised display for Guy Fawkes night. It was loosely based on Doctor Who's 50th anniversary (always good!) but my favourite bits were when it was almost like an explosion in a firework factory (bang b b b bang bang boom!)

I don’t know about Doctor Who but was pretty spacey!
