    You are very welcome, Loraine - it was a great pleasure working for you and I loved the challenges that your vase gave me. Please let me know how it copes through the winter. I put a little plaster lid behind the gravestone just in case you ever think it needs covering - hard frosts and the like. Pop by whenever you like. If I am flush I’ll treat you to coffee and cake!!!

    I commissioned Andrew to do a calving, subject horses. A commission he performed beautifully and I am more than delighted with what he produced.

    A fantastic, challenging commission, Wendy. After spending so much time and working so hard on them, I was sad to part with my horses in the end - but they do look good in their new home. My favourite commission to date - so thank you too Wendy.

    We went to the Englefield school day as a group of homeeducators - meeting Andrew and having a go with the chisel was so inspiring for my son Habib, that we got some slate for him, tools and now he is happily working on it. ... By the way, I found my lost mobile.
    Habib: tell him, that I tried to make an eye, but the slate broke, now I am making a face. Pmp - practice ales perfect :)
