My new exhibition at the Dochas Gallery in Lochgilphead opened last night. At one point I really didn't think I was going to get them all finished but managed it by the skin of my teeth!
After a little over 3 hours of taping frames, at 10pm on Friday night all the shades were still flat! So, I pulled an all nighter and managed to get all but 6 finished. At 10 am I sent Mr B to drop off all the shades at the gallery and went to sleep for an hour. When he came back I went to collect the lamp posts and shelves then went to the gallery to set up. Once I was happy with the way it looked I headed back home, finished the last half dozen got changed chivied Mr B out the door, and was very grateful for that first glass of wine!
Now I have to tidy up the chaos that I have created just about everywhere ... the kitchen, my studio and the Studio Barn, the house has generally been neglected as Mr B hasn't been able to do very much, and I need to 'mend' the vacuum cleaner, which probably just means finding the blockage in the tube...
Work starts for the Handmade Fair on Tuesday!
