Got an idea!

I have just gained some inspiration for next year's National Quilt Championships entry. I am unable to enter this year due to family and business pressures which is a shame but it does give me a whole year to work on an entry for next year.

I was thinking about Cornwall the other day and how I haven't been there for a while. This led me to think about the wonderful rocks and cliffs in North Cornwall - the colours and textures have always appealed to me and I used to take photos and sketch them regularly when I was visiting.

So after a frantic search I found some lovely photographs, sketches and collages I made a few years ago. Et Voila! Inspiration.....so now starts the work!!!

Steams up!!!

I am spending the weekend firing on the narrow guage railway at Hollycome this week as it is now re-opened for the season.  It was very wet yesterday (Good Friday) so not many customers but the weather is looking a bit better today. If you're around and haven't got anything to do over this Easter weekend why not pop down and see us? Visit http://www.hollycombe.co.uk/ for details!!! We will be starting railway rides at 12pm and the fairground rides start at 1pm
