Pugs, gout and taxidermy

Back at home with the folks after a tremendous week of cushion dealing at Ely Cathedral Flower Festival 2018. And not just cushions, a new range of screen printed, embroidered textiles in the form of light shades and footstools has been launched and warmly received by all the curious and discerning customers this week. As promised bespoke orders are now being taken.

Rook customers, as well as being both curious and discerning bring with them unusual and challenging requests, gifts of wool blankets, chocolate, strong coffee, fudge and quotes.

And the quotes…

walking past – a double take – ‘they’re slightly more appealing than taxidermy’

and late in the day after a number of hours in the increasing heat of the craft marquee a fellow stall holder on my shiny new footstools…  ’almost worth getting gout for’

In the future I will be offering a discount for gout sufferers.

Now order must be restored in the workroom ready for July’s Cambridge Open Studios. Download the app and come on over, I will be here with the whippet and new work. See you soon.fower festival
