Hi All

Apologies for being absent without explanation

Last Friday (May 7th, 8am) I woke up to a FaceTime call with my son holding a newborn, which was unexpected as there was still over 2 weeks to go. He was born at home but had to be ambulanced to hospital, he’s now absolutely fine but it took a week. We dropped everything to care for The Adorable Li’l Distraction who is a remarkable little 2 year old & is being a wonderful big brother. We’re all very lucky to have a good outcome & my absolute delight is to see the 4 of them in their lovely family unit.

I’m pretty certain Amanda must’ve told you about yesterday’s devastating fire at Krowji which is an amazing creative hub in Redruth. A friend is waiting to hear if her studio is affected, apparently a kiln might be the cause which is a dreadful thought - but luckily the fire was prevented from spreading.

Anyway, after being dominated my gorgeous grandson I’m just about picking up again but will probably dip out from here until next month.

Hope you all have a great emerge from lockdown
See you soon

Ah Elly @EllyRowbothamPrintmaker - I’m so glad that after making an early appearance your new little Grandson is doing well. Sounds like your lil distraction is enjoying being a big brother xx
How horrible about the fire - hope your friend’s studio is not too badly damaged x

If you want to create a large clickable photo in your posts - here is a link to a couple of methods.
(this doesn’t work for every device)
It looks like a faff but after you’ve done it a few times, it is pretty easy.

Sorry if you’ve seen this before but I do post it sporadically if people need help x

Morning.
Big congrats Elly @EllyRowbothamPrintmaker The Krowji fire sounds like it did a lot of damage, I am going to see what tools I can spare, as I have heard that some jewellers lost everything.

Can I add one to the tally please Max @MaxPringJewellery

Might not list much this week, as daughter has arrived, and not sure what the plans are. Will continue to love all and pin a few though.

Morning all - hope you all had a fabulous weekend? I’m feeling a bit stiff and achy this morning: decorating Saturday & Sunday in the bathroom. It’s not until you start painting a bathroom that you realise how much cutting in there is to do… and then there’s the bit where you have to squeeze your head down behind the toilet of course… lovely way to spend the weekend! Still, looks good though, rather pleased with how it turned out :slight_smile:

I’ve caught up with everyone’s listings from the weekend and pinned the two above me. I’ve decided to have a break from the Fantasy Portraits today and list one of my wooden guestbooks instead - thanks everyone!

Morning all from a very dull and overcast Oswestry. It’s not very nice here again, I think I will be dodging the raindrops for my walk today.

Many congratulations Elly on becoming a Grandma again, you are so lucky. I wont ever have that honour I’m sorry to say. It must be wonderful.

That fire sounds awful. I can’t imagine how it must feel to lose everything like that.

Today I have a green star bag charm

Morning all.

Thanks for all the weather well-wishes and anti-rain dances :rofl: We did have a couple of hefty showers but it could have been so much worse. Footfall was lower than some of the previous markets at that venue but my sales were reasonable - not as good as good as the best there but not as bad as the worst either. At least I made a reasonable profit, which has boosted my mojo a little as it had taken a battering from the inactivity in my Folksy shop. I normally sell pretty well on here but sales have fallen off a cliff and I’m having my worst run in four years. Hey-ho, it is what it is. Maybe I’ll finally get around to trying those experimental projects I’ve had in mind for a while.

I’ve caught up with thread now after missing yesterday. Congratulations to all the family Elly @EllyRowbothamPrintmaker. I’m so glad that what must have been quite an anxious time has turned out well.

I’ve had this leafy fabric for a while and wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with it. Inspiration finally struck late last week. Now to decide what to do with the remainder.
