It’s been half-term this week, so not a lot of felting to report for this week’s Handmade Monday, although I did make another set of Vegimals for one of Daisy’s friends who was having an Octonaut themed birthday party. She was thrilled with them, as were her Mum and Dad. Whilst there we made a Socktonaut!
We visited the Hay Literary Festival on Monday where we saw a Winnie the Pooh storyteller and ate ice-cream in spite of the pouring rain. Later in the week we had a go at some pottery with air-drying clay. Here are the results waiting to be painted.
Yesterday we treated ourselves to a family day out and went back to the Gospel Pass and Lord Hereford’s Knob. No climbing this week as Grandpa was with us, so instead we pottered around churches and a ruined priory, ending up in a pub for a glorious Sunday lunch.
Here’s Cwmyoy Church. See if you can spot the problem!
Llanthony Priory was next.
Lots to make this week and catch up with the order book. I’ve also got two mobiles to finish for new babies, one of whom was very premature but came home from hospital finally last week, and the other for my friend who at this moment is in hospital waiting to see if they are going to give her a C-section today or not! Very exciting!
So pop over to Handmade Harbour now and look at all the other lovely blogs and I’ll get my felting needles out and get cracking. Enjoy the beautiful weather and see you all next week.
