I'm happy to say that the recipients of the Shipping Forecast piece were very happy! They live in a huge house, so although the piece is very large, it'll easily be swallowed up by one of their giant walls. Barry was in the Navy, so I'm sure he'll be checking that I've got all my information right!
Now - because the recipients are family, I couldn't contenance charging them for anything more than materials, but I knew they'd not be happy about that! So instead I suggested they bought me something for the garden. Imagine my surprise when a delivery lorry arrived.... bringing me a chicken house!
That really wasn't what I was expecting... but we're now ready to take on our first ever chickens! I often say that calligraphy spins off into other interests - didn't see this one coming though!
