We were off at a gallop this morning. There was laundry and vacuuming and general tidying before prospective buyers came to look through our house (auction looming). There was a hairdresser appointment and a promised cafe lunch. There were patterns to pick up from the printers and there were plans... oh yes... craft markets and artist studios.... and I think I mentioned something about going out to the country to visit my parents in the evening.
We got lost in unfamiliar suburbs and arrived at the River Studios Open Day much later than expected (...and in desperate need of a nice cup of tea and a bit of a sit down).
How lovely to see Leonie's drawings tansformed into new screen-prints, all made up into cushion covers and packaged fabric panels. This is her first print and she has plans to extend the range of prints and products, using her own art images.
Gaye Abandon..... lovin' those felty table mats and coasters.
They had an altogether FANTASTIC time.
...and I was happy to see her so happy and engaged with other kids (and I was thinking of a saying about things that are not broken), so we stayed a bit longer.
I did some knitting, had a lovely chat, ate lots of bread and pate and cheese.....and then realised it was getting dark outside and that I'd missed the opportunity to go anywhere or do anything else with the day.
It was probably a good thing.
