Spring is in the air, getting back into work!

We had some lovely weather for a while then it changed, however everything in the garden is starting to grow and the spring flowers are blooming so it’s time to get back to work. I feel in the mood for making, what a difference a bit of sunshine makes. I even finished my second lockdown waffle blanket, you can find the pattern here. I made the first one a year ago when the first lockdown started.

I managed to take my work into the garden, I sat in the sunshine and put some colour on the snowdrop ceramics.

Now they have been fired for a second time, see how the colour changes. I love rustic ceramics.

As well as hanging hearts with snowdrops there are ring or trinket dishes.

These are glazed on the back.

And decorative ceramic tiles to hang on the wall.

They are now ready to add to my shop, I hope I’ve made enough this year to last until next spring. That’s one of the issues with working with the seasons.

The pulmonaria and brunnera are flowering now.

These are drying, then the firing and decorating process will start all over again. 🙂
