Brief post cider ramble

Hello all.
Well I haven't made any pots for ages, but I've done lots of work on the building. I have Westcountry Potters Association coming for a day in a few weeks time and I'm determined to have the place sorted out by then.

This is the showroom/kilnshed in a state of transition.
The woodshed, half finished and chaotic
The showroom. I reckon I'll have it finished in the next few days.
The garden looking pretty in the autumn sunshine.
And prettier still, a visitor from Scotland. Hannah came for a couple of days earlier in the week. It was good to see her. We're going to be going to the States in the spring where we'll be doing a number of workshops, so we spent our time making some basic plans for that little excursion - more about that at a later date. I sent pots out to the States this week for the Clay and Blogs show.
Well a rubbish and brief attempt at a blog post, but it's better than nothing I guess. Just got back from the pub, trying to track down my wood supplier, but he wasn't there, so had to stay for a couple of ciders just in case he came in.

Can't wait to have wet soggy pots to show you, won't be long.

Happy weekends all.

how exciting you and Hannah are heading our way (USA)- when and where will you be?
I might have to mark that on my calendar and pop in on one of those work shops.
Better yet- a trip to Seagrove to see the potteries here!?

It's all looking good Doug - and a trip across the pond next year sounds sooooo exciting!!

I need to check some details with you for the Westcountry Potters visit so let me know when would be a good time to phone you (we're away from tomorrow till Wednesday).

I've just taken on a workshop in Wrington (village 4 miles away) - it's going to be a mega project to get it sorted and kitted out, but made a start with an essential item today - a kettle!!!

Tee hee, fab to see you. They were very very basic sketchy plans to say the least.
Home sweet home now and guess what - Paul goes away tomorrow till Friday. Bugger
