It was Open Shed day way back in May….and the day had already got off to a good start. The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal had just phoned me to say I was one of the lucky reserves (i.e.. I answered the phone!!) to get tickets from the waiting list for ‘The (beautiful) South’ performing that very night.
And then Liz turned up with a most wonderful commission under her arm! (We had first met at Rheged when she admired my work there and now here she was again, all the way from Dumfries!)
She also thought she was having a good day as that very morning she had viewed my blog to find my latest post featuring her beloved Belted Galloways!
We to-d and fro-d for a bit and soon a couple of saddle-back pigs were to join the scene. Some time was spent getting the layout just right and selecting the glass colours and then with sizes finalised I started cutting.
Yes, a truly belting project….enjoyed from start to finish!
