Thanks for popping in. I am quite liking this early morning start. No cars zooming past, just birds twittering in the garden…
Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well, sad to say farewell to a smashing bunch of friends and fellow crafters yesterday, after another cracking two days of creativity and conviviality. I thought it went well anyway!
Looking forward to welcoming the 3rd group today. Looking at the guestlist, I would say it will be fab. And now I know exactly what I’m doing, it should go smoothly! Famous last words…
Thing is, these workshops are full on hard work! Talk about dive back in the deep end after your holiday, Gray! All the best intentions of taking my foot off the pedal when we got back, and pacing myself a bit better have been well and truly flung to the wind. We’re leaving the house at 7am and getting home at 8pm! Not much time for yoga and meditation this week!
I had to chuckle when I looked at the chair next to my bed this morning. It speaks volumes.
The clobber at the bottom is day one. Then Day two’s attire on top of that – and so on. Day four’s – yesterday’s white dress with big handprints in the wrong place – is parked on the left. And the jeans at the front got rejected this morning in favour of the dress I’m wearing, because Farmer Dave (he who always has one eye on the barometer) mentioned “it’ll be a warm one today”.
Have I got a wardrobe? Has the Pope got a balcony? But by Wynken Blynken and Nod time, the wardrobe is way too far down the hallway! I’m peeling off the clothes and making art before I climb into the sack!
And so, when I glanced at my garderobe in the corner this morning, it reminded me of Tracy Emin’s unmade bed at the Tate. No empty vodka bottles or fag butts mind – gave that game up years ago! Do you remember her unmade bed which caused so much debate? And did you know it sold at Christie’s auction for £2.2 million in 2014?
So I’m thinking of submitting My armchair. I wonder what it would fetch under the hammer….
But wait! It’s not finished yet! It still needs another 2 layers (Friday and Saturday). Then – and only then – will my work be complete. I may sling a pile of the week’s underwear underneath, to give it that grungy feel. Hahahaha.
Gotta go. Guess what. Yep. More Tuna mayo required….
Love & Hugs,
