Well, we're back (Happy New Year everyone). The break was good and we're ready for another busy year (hopefully).
We've decided that we should permanently have a large frame standing in the workshop. We've just finished printing and framing our competition winning picture by Sheila Manwaring and it's all ready to hang on the wall. In the mean time it has been the main topic of conversation with everyone who's called into the workshop. It's a huge striking piece - in a very expensive frame! It also weighs a lot!
It's been much admired both for its frame and, indeed, for Sheila's lovely and imaginative work of art.
It will eventually get on the wall when I find a fitting and chain strong enough.
