Trumpet Fanfare...

...of a different kind!

hello dear readers!  i hope you are keeping well and had a great jubilee weekend.

i have been very busy lately taking advantage of some quiet days at home to do a few jobs around the house such as covering an ottoman i bought at a carboot sale a couple of months ago.

i also managed to have a day to myself to put up my marilyn wallpaper in our hallway.  i'm really pleased with how it looks considering i had sockets, a fusebox and an electric meter cupboard to get round! - what do you think?

as well as refurbishing a lamp and making cushions for our home i've been replenishing my stocks and am pleased to say that my work is now available at Trumpet Corner Tea Rooms & Art Gallery.

this is my cabinet of work

a closer look!
this is a lovely place to visit.  they have a cafe sourced with local tasty food and a gallery featuring local artists (myself included).  they have a lovely garden to sit in (when it's not raining!) featuring different sculptures.  they also have weekly workshops which i go to myself when time allows.

these workshops are run by angela who is an artist herself and she works as Lady of the Greenwood

this is angela's work at the trumpet tea rooms
angela is a textile artist and her workshops are fun and everybody is very friendly and welcoming.  recently i have been learning new embroidery stitches at one of the classes.

i also had time to put my teacups for sale on Ebay and will be busy making more items for my Etsy Shop over the next few weeks.  all this in between painting the bathroom, laying a stairs runner and painting the front room!

who says a womans work is never done!?!
