a good year

Normal service has been resumed, all skiing is over for another year and the snow is being mourned... The sewing machine is out and the cone papers are ready and waiting. I finally start back at work – Jan 25th, not bad!

That’s not strictly true, as is did do a lot of cone making and creative thinking over Christmas, but the nose is now back at the grindstone. 2011 promises to be an exciting year with two exhibitions booked in – although dates still need to be confirmed. My head is full of ideas and as soon as I have some down on paper I will post them up here for all to see. In the meantime, your commissions are welcomed.

The publicity drive must being the is year too – so if you happen to have any handy contacts as magazines, newspapers or craft related places then do let me know. I need to start making some good money as we need a new car, boo, but on a related issue – I officially have my driving license back! So I will be able to drive around to tut my wares! Beware world - 2011 is Sally’s year!

Les 2 Alpes, at the creperie, yum!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I have been enjoying a bit of an extended break from sewing, but I thought I’d take a moment to update the blog! Christmas and New Year was good fun here in Wick, and we all felt very festive as we had tons of snow and it was VERY cold! Had great fun sledging with our friends and family and the village looked magical on Christmas Day. We had the dubious pleasure of being able to say we were the coldest spot in England at -20 degrees! There were burst pipes, floods and leaks everywhere, but they largely seem to have been sorted out with minimum fuss and now we are left feeling far too warm – we acclimatised to the freezing temperatures and 11 degrees feels tropical!

I have assembled some photos to illustrate my Christmas...!

With Andy on Christmas morning in my new hat, and sledging on Boxing Day.
Wick on Christmas day - just magical !
New Year's Eve was spent with friends, and I transformed into an old man for Dan's 30th birthday party.

And now we are off skiing tomorrow – I can’t wait!

Normal service will be resumed from Jan 24th, I promise.
