|Cushions: Hugh Durnford Wood|
|Jewellery: Sue Gregor|
Three days ago, hobbling into the Flying Pig cafe and collapsing into that cosy armchair that I've bagsied as my own would have been a difficult feat. But now, I've come on leaps and bounds. Before our coffee stop, we trawled around the charity shops, I stocked up with cheese and crackers from the deli and, of course, painkillers, so that I can keep up the good work from a rehabilitation perspective.
|Cashmere Scarves: Genia Lorberg|
It wouldn't have been a trip to Bovey without a saunter down the hill to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen for some inspiration. And we made it! The lovely exhibition space there is in transition at the moment so we just had to make do with feasting our eyes on what was available in the shop. Oh if only occupational therapists had the same pay as merchant bankers or I had a trust fund. Then I'd be able to support all these starving craftspeople!
|Folded Metalwork: Lizzie Sanders|
Here's an extra special mention to the lady who taught me nearly everything that I know about jewellery making. She makes extraordinary sculptures that are folded from single pieces of metal using a hush, hush, super secret technique. Lizzie, your display at the Guild is looking mighty fine at the moment.
