Bright Lights, Big City

It's been a while since I've been into the big city - that being Nottingham for me!

I am off there this afternoon to set up for this weekends Craft in the City at Waterstones bookstore.  I usually venture into Nottingham around Christmas time - if only to sample the delights of the German market - but no Gluhwein for me this year!

I'll be taking a selection of work with me, including this lovely bowl that the kiln fairies left for me yesterday:

Cranberry Jelly Squares

Hope to see some of you there!
