- 22/5/2011 - Welcome to Patterns of Light
Welcome. This is a postcard called 'Suppertime' and has something of the spirit of our Loch about it. A long card (29x11.5 cms) and printed here on inkjet watercolour paper.
I attended a dreamcatcher workshop last week with my family, run by Jenny, and I want to thank you for such a great time. I really enjoyed the activity, the peacefulness of the time spent in the yurt, and seeing my 2 daughters, (and husband), get so much out of making such a beautiful and unique piece of art. I unpacked mine today and hung it up straight away. I would recommend the workshop to everyone! Thank you. Carol.
I love the look of your new website - I keep checking progress on it, hoping that someday soon you'll have some of your silver and shell jewellery on it? I visited your shop again in September last and regret not buying one! Here's hoping... Fee Hunter
I came across one of your lovely cards recently and wondered if you are still selling them. Glenys Jones
YOU ARE ALL CORRECT I LOVE THE SHOP! Ella

- 11/2/2011 - Honeysuckle, marmalade and gift tags
Marmalade and gift tags. The marmalade was made in January. I love the smell of marmalade all over the house.
My mother or my grandmother always made it so I had no need. Now, it's down to me and I'm loving it. Ordered so many Seville oranges that, even after I had supplied friends in the village, I still had too many for gifts and breakfast for a year. So...... into the shop with the remainder.
My real take on all this marmalade-making is the importation of sunshine from Spain straight into my kitchen in the dark time of the year. Perfect.
Now.....honeysuckle........two friends, Maureen and Tony, arrived with honeysuckle prunings. Have been making dreamcatcher hoops (and selling one!). They said:
We have been slashing and burning and thought of you........what a good community.
Wouldn't live anywhere else.
