AWOL but with a reason
So where have I been? I don't think I have abandoned my blog for so long before. Having the show here in Perth is quite a huge thing. Lots of packing and packaging and loading this enormous van. A brand new Mercedes Benz which Ian tells me was lovely to drive so that part was okay. It's laborious loading it all up though.
Special thanks to all three - you added that extra bit.
The show was really great - lovely to meet up with so many people - our Gee Golly Gosh table was - well - o wow! You helped me clear things and made me happy. There were wonderful exhibitions including the clever ladies from Northhampton (you will have to wait for the e-mag to see some of their work) and Ali George was an amazing host of the 'this is a Quilt' touring exhibition and my invited Artful Journey exhibition went down well. Sadly I took photos but they have disappeared so plan b is coming into operation next week.
Of course once the show was finished, everything had to be packed back into the van and we could not have managed without Jaslyn, Marion and Oliver - then on Monday morning we unloaded everything - it takes me days to get it all back in place because I take this opportunity to count sort and all that stuff. This is our front hall - we really enjoyed a few days of a clear space
Everything should be almost back to normal by the end of today but ploughing through all of the orders is taking me longer than it might as I have to find things. Usually when we do a show, orders so reasonably quiet but not this weekend - so if you are waiting I apologize but I will soon be up to date.
Then off to work on the e-mag - my studio desk is rather a mess and last weekend Grant and Hannah were over from Sydney but we did catch up at night - and I forgot to add that the rugby final was nail biting but the mighty Chiefs won - great game. Sat is gardening day and not before time.
