After the Fair.......The Tudors

First of all many thanks to Freda and George for a lovely Exhibition at Haddenham on Saturday - it was lovely to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. I'm sure the funds of Hearing dogs for Deaf People and Leukaemia and Lymphona Research have been swelled as a result.

It was a most enjoyable day and as well as out own individual stands as Coombe Crafts and KT Miniatures, Celia and I had the opportunity of a display stand to show all Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop projects together....they looked super, and we were very thrilled to have so many enthusiastic comments. It also gave us the opportunity to give a first mention of  the New Spring Workshop - Round the Back of the Gardener's Cottage. Details will be finalised in January and up on our website then.  In the meantime if you're interested and would like to be kept informed do get in touch.

I've certainly been tripping around the centuries with my recent commissions and I've loved creating this 1/12th scale Tudor Cook - she looks a cheery soul, although I imagine she had to work very hard to produce a meal in those times.

I've been watching the Tudor Monastry Farm series on BBC2 with Ruth Goodman - brilliant and very inspiring - and I'm dying to make some more Tudor  characters when I have time`

Thank you for looking

I'm so glad your day went well at Haddenham.
I bet your little Tudor cook lady knows her onions. She seems to be happy in her work. Love her rosy face, she looks very healthy, must be the real food she makes!

It was a wonderful day and I really enjoyed meeting you and seeing your wonderful work.

Loving your little Tudor cook.

Thanks Jenni - I'm not sure that the cook would look quite that clean and tidy really.....

Lovely to meet you too Lorraine - one of the nice things about fairs!
