The weather is turning here, the temperatures are rarely higher than 17-18 degrees during the day and the mornings and evenings are really chilly. Leaves have started turning colour and falling. Autumn is coming. I love the colours and the coolness - just wish I could keep the light. I miss the light during the days.
I have to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has sent a message or left a comment wishing me well. The worst is over but I am left feeling like a wrung out rag.
Janice was correct to say I've taken 2 steps forward and 4 back this year.... certainly feels that way. It all seems to have gone downhill since the cancellation of Andalusia in April.
So the next few months must be recovery and planning for 2011. Yes, 2011. I've just a few teaching commitments left in 2009 and a few for 2010 but in 2011 I am at the Loch Lomond Quilt show in April and Pebbles Gallery in November. I'm also going to try and arrange one more exhibition locally during that time. So that's 18 months to rest, recover and make new art.
Here are some pictures of the studio as it was left last week - all that was required was the hanging of the new textiles pieces and photographs.
These are not "arty" pics - just taken yesterday and the light was limited.
