Looking Back at February's Past.

Those of you that have been following me
from the start will know that this was my workshop
in the back garden in February 2008
Pottery was still only a hobby then and it was all done
in a 10 x 10 ft summer house. 
Then in Feb 2009 I got a small workshop at Barrington Court.
and in February 2010 I moved to this workshop.
This time last year the workshop was looking like this.
and I can tell you it was a daunting task turning it into a
workshop and showroom.
But we did it.
Marion designed the showroom
and I had complete freedom to design the workshop.
This year I have finally had January & February free to make
some stock for the showroom.
This week sees the end of my Financial Year,
and the start of a new season at Barrington Court
and I'm happy to report that I'm 25% Up
on this time last year.
I've never worked so hard in my life before
It's only the end of  February  and I'm feeling wacked out.
I think I just need to see some more sunshine
and some warmer weather.
Thanks for all of your help and support
over the past few years, the blog has been a great help
and I hope it's inspired a few more of you
to Go For It !.
It's the best move I ever made.

It's been great to watch you move through all these changes, and even visit them in person. Here's to many more years to come.

It's good to see someone in this particular field doing well. It's no wonder, though, your art is awesome! Wish I could browse your shop in person, it looks so cozy.
