Bag, Stickers and Angels

My bag for the People’s Vote March next Saturday arrived today along with a couple of stickers, in  Cornish.

I have now completed eight stained glass angels for the Christmas market. Here are a couple, all  reclaimed  glass, some. of. it. Victorian, and re-cycled bits  of  jewellery.

Market, Conference and A Lane

Another busy day starting with having a stall at the Redruth Re-use, Re-cycle Market which was fun and I sold several pieces which was pleasing. The boots are a tiny version of the Sally-boots I knit for all new babies, knitted with fine golden yarn on very thin needles.

My sign on purple, white and green glass and a pair of golden boots

In the afternoon I attended a fascinating conference “Cornwall – Herstory”, run by the Institute of Cornish Studies. My choir were singing at the end of the conference which went down very well. I loved this particular slide when the speaker was telling us of the part Cornish women played in the abolishment of slavery while also explaining how some Cornish women benefitted from sad slavery – very interesting.

The campus at Tremough in Penryn is enormous and set on what was farmland. From the car park down to the lecture theatre students (and I) walked down this lovely lane which was transformed into a stream by the downpour that was happening as I splashed my way back after the conference.

The Last Few Busy Days

We arrived home on Wednesday evening and went straight to the sea.

Porthtowan

We spent Thursday unpacking etc. On Friday morning we went to stand with the Youth strike for the Climate in Truro

The Red Rebels

……..  and in the evening to a splendid Sing and Supper at Mount Pleasant Eco Park with friends.

The delicious menu

Saturday saw us in Truro again for International Peace Day and taking part in a flashmob in Truro Cathedral. The following video  gives a flavour of the wonderful event.

Today I have made my first Christmas angel of the season out of Victorian window glass and some pretty beads I picked up while away.This afternoon we have been blackberry picking and got caught in a drenching storm and this afternoon ……..

Water rushing down the hill

….. I have made a blackberry cake, Thomasina Miers’ Spiced Blackberry and Brown Sugar Crumble Cake and so – we are home! More about our adventures in later posts.

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 .

Our Poppies are beginning to open.

The bees are busy collecting pollen.
