My husband came with me this week so we had a walk around Wasdale, it was a beautiful day.
Counting Sheep .. at Quirky workshop
This fine flock was created this weekend at the armature workshop in Gosforth.
Quite a challenge in a day, starting with wire and a bundle of wool, the group did so well and went home with their own little sheep and hopefully will be making their second sheep now! Thank you and well done ladies.
The last Herdwick doorstop workshop for this year , Wednesday's group, it is fully booked but more will be held next year at Quirky workshops, dates are on my workshop page.
Mrs Ewe and Mr Tup are in this months Cumbria Life! Thanks to Diane Gainey, Aritst and owner of the lovely Viridian Gallery in Keswick where you can purchase the doorstops and many more wonderful pieces of art.
Heathcliffe the Hare
I have finally completed Heathchiffe. He will be looking for a home soon, he must be close to life size, that wasn't my intention when I started him but I got a bit carried away.
Although he is not as heavy as the herdwick doorstops he is weighted so may be used as one.
Heathcliffe has been sat quietly watching with his ears up in the corner of the room, I think I will miss him.
You can find Heathcliffe at Viridian Gallery in Keswick, he will be settling in for this weekend (4th/5th Nov). He will be a one of a kind, I hope he finds a good home :)
