Christmas is coming.........

Now that my holiday is over, the nioghts are drawing in and that dreaded word, CHRISTMAS seems very close.
First though, my holiday in Greece for two weeks, was super. We just relaxed and did nothing. I did take my drawing pad with me, plus a good jewellery book.
We took a boat out for a whole day and pulled into some lovely little secluded beaches. Swam in the blue waters and did a bit of fishing.

We had an unexpected earthquake one evening. The tables shuddered and the glasses moved. It must be so awful for those, who experience really bad ones.
We met some really nice people and usually ended the night in our little bar, near our apartment. I brought two commissions home with me, so must get on with those.
I have had a Open studio day last week and raised £225 for our local hospice. The weather was awful, so not as many customers as I would have liked, however those that did come were lovely and gave very generously.

Only made a few things this week. A commission and these Acorns.
Now please remember, when Christmas shopping. Please support local Artists. We work very hard to bring you, unique and quality items, that you will not be able to buy in the high street shops.
