Good to see you

Just before the clock strikes 12 and we all turn into pumpkins or white mice – thank you everyone who called in and said hello at the Norwich Summer Fair today.

From this point you can travel the inter-galactic super highway to find me here and here and here.

On a practical note; birders there will be curlews, godwits, oyster catchers and herons on cushions by the end of the week.

For the people who fancied a flamingo I can’t find the promised photo but flamingos are definitely in the repertoire so I’ll get on with that.

And all those folk who arrived after the bees had sold out there will be new bees at next weekends open studio for sure.

Hope to see you again.

straightening up

I need to stretch!

Meet the hare and the tortoise, officially a prototype. My hare is far too far away, race officials would never believe this scenario even with the backing of an ancient Greek so I am starting again, this time I will concentrate and the tortoise will be significantly larger.workspace

The work space is untidy, and that picture…

It has been pointed out to me that my past would not have tolerated that angle for a moment. I think this is it’s third week. However there are murmurings of decorating – in fact I believe Gray Blue No.91 has been ordered.

Time for a re-hang.

notes from the A14

A trip to Craftco to top up their supplies.  We plugged in the ipod, turned on the windscreen wipers and headed east.  Whilst driving I reflected on how bad we are at time management; this journey was only necessary because I had missed successive last posts. Osborne Central has been intense of late (I am not the only one with deadlines to meet), sleep patterns disrupted, late late nights, early mornings, extra journeys, odd food and not enough dog walking. I am an eight hours a night person and the strain was starting to show…

In Southwold the sun was shining and the people were smiley, Sue Ryder had two woolly blankets, crayfish sandwiches were being served in The Lord Nelson and there is nowhere better to drink Adnams Spindrift.  Order has been restored.

I am working on new designs.

Rather than wait for the UK’s supply of blankets to dry up I have started looking at other background fabrics.  Dustsheets are still in mind but between me and the hardware shop are two fabric shops… and this beautiful, beautiful linen.

I am imagining French seams, covered buttons and hand stitched button holes…

I may outsource the button holes.
