Welcome to Handmade Monday – click here to find out more (including how to join in).
This week the rugby clock finally went out – I’m glad to report the customer was happy with it!
I’ve not yet added it to the website, but I think I will. I can make it with any team colours (and any wording of course) so it might make a good gift for another rugby league fan somewhere!
In other news, I managed to make time for a couple of days off this week (although I love my work, I know I spend far too many hours on it and time off is always welcome!). There was a trip to Martin Mere to feed the ducks
and a day out in Liverpool’s Albert Dock with its interesting mix of museums, art galleries, shops, cafes, a lot of of which were new since last time I’d been. It’s an area which has seen a lot of development recently (but the buildings in this picture are definitely old ones!):
Both days out were both cold, breezy, bright and a lot of fun. Days out always refresh me and I always end up with lots of photos, sketches and ideas (see, I never stop “working” even on a day off – although I struggle to see sketching as working )
Now I’m tucked up warm again, I’m looking forward to a different kind of visiting. If you have a spare few minutes, do join me in browsing the links below. Craft bloggers never cease to amaze and inspire me with their makes, news and photos.
