Evenin' all! Thought I'd tease you with another sneaky peek of tomorrow afternoon's workshop...I promise to show the full pictures, along with some snaps from the weekend, on Sunday or Monday. It looks a bit blurry because it's enlarged by cropping, but will give you a taster of what we'll be up to...look Sheils....wire and beads! Don't worry, there's nothing too tricky with those - you'll cope just fine, and we will have the country's leading expert on hand of course. Yes Heather, I mean you! We have just got back from a trip to the supermarket where I had a bit of a giggle, wishing I had a camera in my phone. As we were going through the self service checkouts I spied a very extrovertly dressed young guy...oversized red baseball cap, white baseball type jacket and very loud red baggy trousers. I was just saying "Here's my dream guy" to David, being humorous of course, when David pointed out the familiar monogram on his hat...."T.H." in 4" high white letters!!! "It's Tim Holtz!" said David, causing me to have a giggling fit at the idea of Tim dressed like that! Well, it made me laugh anyway!
As an antidote to ranting on my other blog, here are a few things which have made me happy this week, some are very simple but they gave me a lift. We are currently watching and listening to the BBC Proms concert and Nicola Benedetti was playing the violin with such passion and emotion that it was very moving. Next there was a medley of music from Scottish films and now there is a compilation of show tunes....a real treat. The blockage in my creative head has been shoved out now thank goodness! I always find that if I have anything pending that I am not getting on with (for one reason or another) I can't be fully creative with anything else either, so, all urgently needed projects are done - for now anyway! Everything is prepped and ready for tomorrow's workshops too, so that feels good. Speaking of which, I am so looking forward to meeting Sioux (Artjen) who is travelling a long way to join us all tomorrow...I know she will have a great time with all her blogging friends. Limpy the pigeon is getting better all the time. Still limping, but looking much better - thanks to everyone who asked about him - nice to know that there are others as soft as we are! David brought a lovely gift back for me when he popped out this afternoon, a delicate necklace and bracelet with blue abalone insets. Aren't I a lucky lady....well, lucky anyway, not so sure about the lady bit! Ha ha!
Anyway, before I get told off, I shall sign off so that I can properly enjoy the rest of this wonderful concert. See some of you tomorrow and I'll be back with pictures next week. Have a great weekend everyone. Lindsay
