How are you today? I hope you are doing well and hanging on in there. I am very excited to report I’m having my Covid vaccine on Sunday! Just a little bit excited, and I get to go out! Eeek, to the outside! Honestly what is it going to be like when we are allowed out all the time???? and hug! Oh my, I miss hugs!

Anyway, I digress, I have a fun project for you today, one I wrote a magazine article on about 10 years ago. I’ve adapted it, improved it, and I think and you are going to love it. I even show in the video the original version, its a bit battered but still cute.

This is the main adaption I have made, adding an extra panel gives the box more stability.

I’m writing this blog post a couple of days in advance, because I’m taking a few days off! Go me!

I’ve switched my out of office email replies on and I can be found in the garden pottering or on the sofa reading a book depending on the weather. My default setting is always to work, I love my job and there is always something I can do, and I love to be busy. But I have realised in this last year of crazy that I have to schedule in days off! Several in a row and then be strict and actually NOT work, so I’ve got a 4 day weekend ! I am trying really hard, but you know I am a work in progress!

I’ll be back in my studio on Monday, getting ready for the busy week of retiring list and a demonstrator only look at the new catalogue (it goes live for customers in May, I’ll be posting them out mid April).

I hope you have a lovely weekend. See you soon.
