Thank you all for your lovely comments regarding the paper chandelier in the last post. My intention is to make some smaller versions in the near furture for the shop . I’ll let you know via the blog once they’ve been launched. Talking of blogs, did you know that you can subscribe to mine by clicking the little ‘sign me up’ column to the right? By doing that will mean that whenever I publish a new post, you’ll recieve an email in your inbox stating exactly that. Just a thought. It saves checking back and finding that there’s nothing new during those times when I’m being a little slack.
So, It’s a little cooler now in NZ as we’re well into Autumn. Some mornings I’m lighting the log burner in the studio which means that this little man is spending more time in it:

Passionfruit and figs are two of the fruits now in season. I have a neighbour and also a friend who grow both. The little bags filled with fruity goodness every so often are welcome surprises when I spot them sitting in our mailbox. Figs, are my new favoruite thing. How I got to my age never having tasted a fresh one I will never know. I was given a bag full yesterday
and now there are just three left.

In the studio I’ve been having a play with clay and stitches. I’m pleased with the way they’ve turned out. They are for sale in the in-person shop right now and will be available online next week when I’m planning to do a big website update.

Through the post today I recieved a copy of ‘The Guide: The Essential Lifestyle Magazine’ (Wellington edition) which includes a huge segment on The Wairarapa region as well as an article about Agnes Coy and me. It’s beautiful written ( as are many of the articles) and photographed by Madeleine Slavick.

My shop opening hours over the Easter break will be slightly less than usual. However, if you are planning a special journey and would like to visit, then just let me know and I’m sure that we can arrange something.
Recently spent time have a good old clear out and am loving how together the studio looks right now.

Until next time…
