It has been a while – but we are making progress. This winter has been the coldest since we left Exmouth 11 years ago, and most of the garden has been dormant. However, the mandarin tree has been prolific, the broad beans are growing like mad and beginning to flower, and the bok choy are growing really well (the first time I’ve tried to grow bok choy – it seems to be quick growing and not prone to bugs, and it tastes great).
It’s springtime again. The evenings are longer, the days are warmer and the garden is in bloom. Also Mrs Penny Plover has hatched another batch of chicks – 4 little chicks have hatched.
I’ve been playing with white! White glass, or frosty white etched clear glass. These will be up on my website soon.
I love the feeling you get when a regular customer comes back for another piece. One of my customers (lets call her May) has bought a number of pieces from me – and she asked for a special piece – a long necklace with hollow beads.
This is the piece I made for her – shown here and below as a work in progress.
The piece was mailed to her, and she came back to me to tell me how delighted she is with the necklace. Its long enough to wear as a double or triple string, and the colours are fabulous.
Thank you May!
This necklace is a one of a kind piece for a special repeat customer. She wanted a long necklace – long enough to be worn in two loops. Getting close to finished now…

Henny Penny and friends have been joined by a couple of clown fish – Nemo and friend.
These two are headed for a gallery – contact me here if you would like to have a Nemo of your own!
Blame Joy! She asked me if I could make a glass chicken!
Joy is one of the members at the Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association’s Ferry Park Gallery. Joy made me a wonderful crocheted woolen knee rug that has kept me warm all winter. Joy loved the glass fish that I have at Ferry Park, and asked if I could make a glass chicken for her granddaughter’s birthday. That was fun!
