Procrastination and all that!

So I am sat at the computer with a application behind my blogger pages I know I know the deadline is today but sometimes you just have to take a minute or two to check facebook, twitter, etc etc. I am halfway through it but just taking a moment honest but I have been telling myself that for about an hour after updating the phone, downloading pics, and ordering things I will get on I promise but first a little blog update :-)

So four new hares to add to the family  and Boris found his
 new home almost as soon as he was out of the kiln. 
They have promised pictures to follow when 
they have put him on the wall in this new home. 

So Potfest was a success and 5 out of 7 hares displayed went to their new homes so I am spending some time developing full bodied hares and also a few more tropgy heads to hopefully go to galleries, we shall see. I would like to play with foxes too but am feeling I need to master my hares first but it's been a while that I have been soo excited about a new venture. 

So this weeks been a catching up on officey stuff and also old friends. On Wednesday I had a lovely visit from my friend Carolyn we are trying to smile and look lovely without baggy eyes and double chins here. It was so lovely to see her and catch up on the comings and goings of each others lives. She is glowingly pregnant so I better get knitting!  Also a catch up on the Cross Gaits Inn at Blacko with new work hung the week after Potfest in the Park. I framed up some drawings I was playing with I am not sure if they will be ceramics yet we shall just have to watch this space.They just so made me smile.


It has been a tough year this one and I couldn't have done it without the help of my family and friends so I am feeling reflective today. Well when you have to write a positive account of yourself you realise you couldn't get to that point without the love and support of others so here at the bottom of my procrasinations I am going to say thank you to everyone who has supported me this year you know who you are :-)
Oh ok I am going back to the application honest x

Quick update on those post show blues

Well I know it has over a week but I just can't seem to make anything of much value as I sit in my tidyish studio (it's been mopped!). I have started with hares and mixing the clay with porcelain and actually wedging I know wedging the clay together to see if I can get a more whiter base. Yes I am obsessed with white I know. But I think I may need to add some grog or try a different clay for that so back to the drawing board. My hares were so well received and having been sent some amazing emails over the past week I think I need to push myself into making more and being a little more braver. Here hoping cross those fingers for me. 

Timothy went off to his new home

Thomas found a new place too

New in my Etsy shop

I am currently uploading work into my Etsy shop as my laptop has died after water damage and I can't access the back end of my website...
