Thanks for popping in. It’s 8.30 pm. Been up here in my little cubby hole aka artroom, beavering away at prep since 7.30 am. No need to cook; Dave’s up in Port Sunlight. No need to even go indoors really, except to put the kettle on or powder me nose, as they say! I’m in good company here, with Wurka and Hollick – they’ve definitely moved in. The minute they knew Dave was away, those two pesky gits showed up at the door. It’s ok though; I’m always so much happier when I’m well prepared, when I have a plan. Couldn’t do it without one!
I was thinking today. Stupid thing to say really. When am I not thinking? The day I stop thinking will be the day I stop breathing! Anyway, I was thinking about the fact that I have been doing this 2 hour live TV slot on the first Sunday of the month for a helluva long time! If I could remember when the very first TV show was it would help! I know it was a Thursday morning in May, and I know the presenter was Martin Parker. But the year eludes me! What do you reckon? 10 years? Or longer? How we have managed to come up with new products and designs every single month for a decade is pretty baffling! And this Sunday, the new Cherry Green designs are just gorgeous. I could do 10 live hours on these easily. Beautiful. I even started pattern building at one point! It was like putting on an old comfortable pair of slippers…
Here’s something interesting. On my Facebook Barbara Gray Artist page (please go over there and press like if you haven’t! Unless of course you don’t like. Which would lead me to ask you why you are reading my blog! But that’s another issue, isn’t it…). Anyway, on that page, I asked folks whether they were stampy, Groovi, or both. Then today, I asked my dear friend Brenda McCaw to kindly take a count – and the results were very surprising. Ready? This is what she wrote, which was very humorous!
Votes are in, counted, and not verified. The results are as follows:
In alphabetical order, the votes for each candidate are as follows
Total number of votes – 452
Number of spoiled ballot papers – 3 (there’s always some folk who don’t read the rules…)
Both – 78
Groovi – 90
Stampy – 281 (plus my vote!)
How about that then?! So even though Groovi generates so much of our business nowadays, the people who follow me on Facebook are predominantly stampers! Velly intellesting…
Thanks Brenda! Great Job!
I’m going to lock Wurka and Hollick in here for the night, and go eat something, before I go weird.
Love & Hugs,
