isn’t it amazing what can happen in a week? If I told you dear reader, what had happened to me in the last week since my return from the Knit and Stitch in Harrogate you would not believe me…… therefore I’m not going to..suffice to say stress over with and feeling a lot more fly… meaning unlike Robin Schultz* ( now there’s a man who likes his sunglasses) no I’m not being big headed and saying I am gorgeous but I am feeling a lot more beautiful on the inside… instead of horrible ugly and stressed out…
*(check it out on u tube ft Francesco Yates ..its my guilty pleasure at the moment. I am sure its very misogynistic but the bass line is fab….how sad am I????)
Any hoo a blog is a bit like child birth..doesn’t come till its ready..(obviously without the excruciating pain, gas air and copious amounts of drugs..but hey its a simile).. so here it is….sorry it wasn’t sooner…just been ever So just a tad stressed over the last week… and so stress week from that awful place over and I am back, my dreams are back – so I have dreamed what I am doing for the NEC in March for the ICHF and Room 6…. which I was panicking about ever so slightly..loads of ideas but nothing talking to me ( ever get that?) but I’m there now …just got a display issue but am sure it will come to me and also yesterday the fabulous Liss in StitcheS came to my rescue with this marvellous Christmas deco…all from an old book…hope the boy wonder doesn’t get to it and chop it up like he did with the last deco I made.
and so to Harrogate….
…..where do I start…another amazing week with the Embroiderer’s Guild…think the graduate show case looked even better than it did in London. Really enjoyed my stint with ArtVanGo. My mini sculptures had their first outing…by the Sunday they had had enough as they kepy voluntarily jumping off their box,,,they where ready for home too, me thinks! (now on sale in Stuff...see later in this blog).
Great feed back, lots of lovely galleries to look at and I was well looked after by the EG..loads of great volunteers from the EG came by to help out on the stand which was great and it was good to catch upon all the things that are going on in different parts of the country. Special thanks to the ladies who helped me pack my stuff at the end of the day so I could get on the road home sunday eve, you were all great tho and it was lovely to meet you! Had a fab journey home with Georgina Bellamy….. following Anthea Godfrey down the A what ever its called from Harrogate through Wetherby
..losing her by mistake north of Knebworth then driving straight through central London at night…fabulous…..I’ve never done that before! I did mean to tho as I was dropping Georgina, well actually I
abandoned her to a mini cab driver in Kennington and then pushed back down the A3..to Petersfield only nearly fell asleep once… honest..home at 2am..phew…..
STUFF and NONSENSE
And finally home and shopping…I went in to the marvellous ‘Stuff’ in Petersfield,..where Lyn has been selling my work for me ..she is rather good at it ….
