Sadly Dad passed away last week, we were all with him and he went very peacefully, which is a blessing given what he's been through over the last 6 years. He died in Strathcarron Hospice, an amazing place where the doctors and nurses are like angels. The funeral is on Tuesday so I hope to return home by the end of the week. The Studio will re-open on Saturday 15th November, apologies to anyone who has visited over the last 2 weeks when we have been closed. Some orders will go out today, the rest will be dealt with on my return. I have also had to cancel our stand at the Country Living Christmas Fair Scotland. I've learnt over the last 5 years that sometimes you just know that you can't do everything, and right now being there for my family is more important to me. We will attend some fairs, just not as many as usual.

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and words, they really meant a lot during a rather tough week for us all.

Normal blogging shall hopefully resume a week today.

See you all then.
