I'm just setting off for Ludlow, for the stone carving course I am running tomorrow at the Assembly Rooms - all packed up and ready - really I should have left about an hour ago, or anyway that was the plan.
I made myself a list of jobs to do before going and so the last couple of days has been rush and whirr. One of them was to get a new leaflet printed and sent out for my Open Studio. Three other artists and I joined together to make a little flyer, as we work within a few miles of each other, for visitors so they would know about the studios open in this area. Just by the skin of my teeth I've managed to get my allocation distributed to all the sites on my list, and I know the others have been working just as hard.
Sue Slack from Lockton is a painter, who is fabulously bold and vibrant with colour.
Elisabeth Bailey is a potter, and I have a number of her jugs, bowls and mugs in the kitchen and they are used on a regular basis.
And Janet Hayton, who works in the next village, Appleton Le Moors, is a ceramicist.
me of course.
We've put a map on the back of the leaftlet, to help with planning a route.
So, just need to remember my sandwiches for the journey, really would like an ice-cream as it is so hot!, and I'm away.
Will bring back lots of pictures and tell you all about it.
