thanks for popping in. Day 3 in Glasgow done – and don‘t my feet know it! Until you‘ve worked a 4-day exhibition and demoed like we do, you cannot know how hard they are . Gruelling. Thank heaven for help! Hilda Smith has very kindly been lending a hand, and has been such a blessing !
I go like the clappers pretty much from the minute the doors open each morning. And I keep prattling and rolling from one technique to the next one, jumping from one demo to the next – until about bang on 2.30pm. Then I hit a wall. It‘s almost instant. suddenly, like the flick of a switch, I just cannot go on any longer. and that‘s when I am doubly grateful to Hilda, because she steps into the demo role – and I am off the hook. I get to go for a stroll, switch off, go into my own head for a while, soak up the magnificent needlework and quilting and textile art on display in the hall. Just for half an hour. Heavenly artworks.
Paul? He slopes off for a ciggy sporadically. Dave? He goes on coffee runs or loo runs to have a break. Me? I stick with it till 2.30 non stop, then have all my breaks together.
Whatever works, eh xxx
