Glass, A Dress and A Kite

I have some pieces in a fabulous gallery, Fannie and Fox, in Penryn and am thrilled to bits!

In the gallery is the most beautiful felted dress made by Deborah Irvine. The detail is exquisite.

We went to Porthtowan today to meet our nephew and family and have rarely seen the beach so crowded. There were lots of kites around, mostly moving too fast for me to capture.

Glass, Seed Head and Extinction Rebellion

I have completed glass piece for a friend today incorporating her much treasured crystal heart. I’m very pleased with it.

The Bill Mackenzie seed heads were catching the sunbeams today and were very lovely.

At the weekend, Extinction Rebellion put 200 flags on boats in Falmouth harbour to draw attention to the climate emergency and I hoped our boat was one of them. We went to have a look this evening and we have a flag!

Noah’s Ark, A Sign and Hope

Ten years or so ago, when our first Grandchild arrived, I bought a beautiful Noah’s ark. Today, as none of the LiveWires now play with it, I have passed it on to our lovely neighbour for her visiting Grand nephew and nieces to play with.

I have unexpectedly been offered a stall at tomorrow’s monthly market in Redruth to sell my glass pieces and I have accepted! I’ve made a new sign for the stall.

We are living in troubled times and need to keep our hope alive. 

Especially seek out truth and love, Dear Reader .

Market, Poppies and A Bee

We’ve had a brilliant time at the Redruth Re-loved Market today, lots of compliments and lots of sales! Here is part of our display on my stall!

Our Poppies are beginning to open.

The bees are busy collecting pollen.

Breakfast, Glass and Sea Glass

Breakfast for LiveWire 4, designed by herself, Banana  and Blueberry Pancake with the biggest strawberry on  top,  with  cream  and  maple  syrup.

Her next design was with glass, choosing the colours and pieces that went together with the piece of brooch that she had brought before their holiday in the Scilly isles.  I shall make it for her in the next week or two.

She also chose a piece of sea-glass from all those she had collected on the beaches they visited when on holiday.

What a fabulous collection for me to work with in future pieces.  Thank you to the family for collecting so many beautiful bits for me.

 
 

New Mugs, New Glass and A Quilt

We have found the perfect place to keep our new mugs, bought from our potter friend in Open Studios week. Isn’t the turquoise colour  just gorgeous?

Last week I was sent some new earrings to use in my glass work and this is the piece that they inspired – purple, white and green, a Suffragette piece! 

I came across this quilt a few days ago and loved it. Just look at the work that has gone into it with words from Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol, a favourite song that we sing with my choirs.

Chasing Cars
We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life
Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me

Leaves, Kit and New Glass Piece

Leaves from our edible garden were on our lunch plates today.

We were next door for supper this evening when one of the children announced, “There’s a baby rabbit in the sitting room!”  It was rescued and taken out to the back field and five minutes later the same announcement was made. Another smaller one had joined us!  It, too, is now back in the field.

I can show you my latest glass piece now as this evening it was collectedly by those for whom it was made. Their favourite colours are pink and purple and they just celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary (pearl) so……..
