I've participated in a couple of markets this year and very much enjoyed them - even though one was spent trying to stop the wind taking my tent off with it! It's been nice to get out of my workshop and meet people for a change rather than chatting to the chickens that seem to have made a habit of gathering at my door each day. By the way if anyone wants a friendly coq called Kiev than you are welcome to him. His mother was killed by a fox so he has been almost hand reared so he is very tame but, as I have found with previous over-friendly chickens, he is getting in the way and when the sparks are flying he isn't! This is the cheeky chappie with my brother in-law.
When I wasn't occupied chasing chickens out of the atelier, I was able to expand on my garden range of furniture with a gothic style garden bench. If you know anyone that wants some quality iron furniture that will last them generations than point them in my direction!
I've also just completed a security grill to keep some hounds in. The photos not a great one as the lighting was bad but you can get the idea.
Heres another photo of Kiev and my two on the right just for Valerie's son!
