We arrived home a day early from a trip up to Bristol and Wiltshire. All of our visitors have now left (certainly till late September) so I get the train room back for a while.
As I have an exhibition date lined up for Tregonning next weekend, Iíve set up the case on the bed for final testing and fiddling.
Iíve added, at the last moment, this Celtic Cross which is typicak of so many Cornish villages. I think it looks ok - any thoughts?




I think it looks just right, Martin.

Seconded! An excellent addition. I've long been considering one for Cant Cove, by the main road, but still have not decided, yet. Where did you buy yours, please, Martin?

The cross looks fine to me, Martin. Maybe if you're exhibiting in November a couple of wreaths might be in order?

The cross looks perfectly natural in that location Martin and Micks suggestion re wreaths in November is brilliantly apt!  :thumbsup:

Great idea. I will be at the National Maritime Museum in November with Tregonning so wreaths it will be.
Now....thereís a challenge.

Hi Martin,

I have meaning to go to a watch shop or similar to see if they do tiny washers as portholes for boats but have never got round to it. Not sure how small they would be but something like that might work for wreaths.

Just an idea and good luck, it'll be a nice gesture.

Cheers weave  :beers:

A very good idea Chris, in fact, I think I have some smallish washers and some fine red scatter material to cover them with.

Cross looks good Martin. Following up on Weave's (excellent) washer idea, I recall in the past that you could get fibre washers. If they're still around and in the right size they might be better than steel?

Someone tell me to stop fiddling with Tregonning before its first show on Saturday.
I keep feeling the need to make little (and I mean tiny) tweaks which no one would ever notice anyway!
