It’s Busy

November 5, 2018by Anita

We are at that time of the year where It’s Busy. The new school year is underway.

Everybody is beginning to think about Christmas and that means fairs and new items to make. such as our Powertex Candle holders that make fabulous night lights with the colour changing battery candles.

There are two types. Glasses and bowls. To see the bowls changing colours follow this link. https://www.facebook.com/eaubrinkstudio/videos/696953244031107/

Both are very elegant and easy to use without the risk of fire. They make fabulous gifts.

 

Also after attending the workshop with  Moira and her faces I have become obsessed with them. I have been making smaller faces in frames as well as the larger ones. Do they remind you of anyone you know?

I will be having these and other items with me at Dents Farm on the weekend of the 9th November as well as at the Winter fest in Wymondham on the 1st December. Why not come along and say hello?

I am also looking at making pets with this technique too.

We are looking at the new years programme. so far we have many things planned but they do need a little tweaking.  Such as the Experimental Wednesdays. A group has grown out of this that meets on the first Wednesday of the month. We are almost at capacity for this group. I am capping the numbers so that everyone gets plenty of space to work in. I am going to continue to run other Wednesdays for beginners and then when there is room beginners can move into the group once up to speed.

Embroidery Mondays will also be changing to a day where you can come along and enjoy traditional hand stitch. Rather than it being a structured class, learners can dip in and out as they want. The day will start at 10 and end at 4. Materials will not be included in the price as it can be expensive. However I will have the materials here if you wish to purchase them. For learners who are totally new to embroidery you will be given a choice of printed linens to use to practice your stitching. This will give you finished items to remind you of your stitches.

On another note a Ram called Tornado has been chasing our three girls around the garden and has settled in for the next few weeks. I am not sure if the girls like him as much as they did like Conkers.

Marlow is spending his days chasing herons out of the pond and the resident crows have been joining in. Hopefully the heron will give up and move on soon.

And lastly the chickens have molted so hopefully now the egg production will increase again. That means more cake.
