Super dad and Haunted Chapels!

Its been another extremely busy week for me! My brilliant father has once again shown himself to be a true super dad when I gave him an old bath I found in a garden in Exeter, some plastic sheeting and old bits of wood and asked him to turn it into a boat with a sail to become a sculpture! He did a fantastic job, as ever and is very tolerant of my hair brain schemes! I am keeping the full glory of the boat under wraps until it is finished, but here are a few photos of my dad making and me beginning to decorate my boat sculpture. Only 2 weeks to go till it is installed I had better hurry up!

Today I have come back from the first day of a two day craft fair at Salum Chapel, East Budleigh, Devon. There were not as many people come as any of us had hoped! I think the good weather and the women’s semi finals at tennis may have played a part in this! However, the setting is wonderful and what customers there were, were very lovely! I have made some useful contacts and may even have a couple of commissions! its not all about the money!

The Chapel is ancient, originally built around a tree, later rebuilt in the 17th Century with a false roof! where smuggled contraband was hidden! The chapel is reputed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Devon and the chapels wonderful guardian Kathy was full of amazing ghost stories including taped evidence of ghosts talking and the fact that every time the alarms go off in the night (one of the doors unbolts its self regularly, sending an alarm call direct to the police) the police refuse to enter the building and get the eldery and disabled Kathy to go in and check the building, cos they are too scared!!!!!!!!! Anyway, my stall looks lovely and any ghosts better stay away from my stained glass tonight!
