Sunday catchup


I mentioned in my last post that we visited Frome while we were away, it's not a great town but has a sweet little cobbled street where the patchwork shop is. The rain began while we were there and was so heavy that we dashed into a lovely organic vegi cafe and ate Thai burgers and salad as we watched the rain pour down the cobbled lane like a river.

After this we visited a couple of lovely potteries, actually three potteries. There was an exhibition on at Muchelney Pottery where John Leach works and we picked up a bowl to replace one that had been broken. The problem I have now is that I don't really want to buy any as I know my husband can make them for me :)
The bottom four photos are of his work, he made the pots months ago but has had to wait for his new kiln to be able to glaze them, so I know that he can make even better pots now and have put in my order :)

Love the cobblestone alley and your husband's pottery is simply gorgeous. Mr. Potts and Mrs. Linen -- a very creative couple.

Those pots are wonderful. I love browsing potteries. I don't think I've ever been to Frome but it looks like my kind of place.

I would love to walk on along that cobblestone alley. Pottery has always intrigued me. Your husband is gifted. His pottery is beautiful! You and your family sure have been blessed with artistic creativity.
