Week end of Glass

Haven't posted for a while, as I have been busy with a bit of DIY/decorating and a bit of practise for the Tuffnells Summer Bash which happened last weekend .......................

Martin Tuffnell threw a summer bash for his customers, friends and his neighbours in the village(well all the village really)!
We had a great time playing with all sorts of glass, and it was a chance to meet new friends (in my case)  and those I had only chatted with on the Frit Happens Forum.
Here are a few pics of the weekend.............................
