I can't believe 9 days have passed since my last post, where has the time gone? But then I guess I have been busy with all sorts of things. Transcribing family history records for Somerset Hundreds, a day with my brother cooing over the new addition in the family, a 10 week old Border Terrier. Preparing for my Glastonbury Exhibition on 29 May - 6 June. I also have a craft stall at Stourhead (National Trust in Wiltshire) this weekend where I will be selling my felted hats and bags that I made during the long cold winter when my art had dried up. (It will be great to see you there, if you can make it please make yourself known). Yesterday, with wood, drill and saw in hand I was making hat stands.
Stourhead arts and crafts will be quite a family affair as my sister, Rona, will be selling her knitted mice and my daughter, Emma, designer bunting, her new venture called Threads and Tails. I spent the weekend helping her with last minute preparations and doing simple sketches suitable for felt cutouts for decoration. Here are a few examples. I also did some vehicles and animals too. I am not very proficient at drawing from the imagination but once I got started the ideas seemed to flow. It's great being a member of an arty/crafty family, we bounce ideas off one another when we get together and then there is no stopping us.
