checking in

Things are busy, hectic in fact surrounded by an air of the mildly frantic.paint1

If I were ahead, and no-one was waiting for cushions, fired clay work*, photographs of lampshades or embroidered fabric for upholstery with open studios just 10 days away, it might mean that there wasn’t enough going on.  In fact there is a lot happening, the seat of my pants is thin but intact. Just.

Hold on blog reader I will be back with the odd annecdote, photograph and offer of cake throughout the rest of 2015.  This is a year of change and during the next 6 months I will establish a rhythm and regular blog posts.
