  1. Well now the arts week is over and I've had time to collect my thoughts, tidy the house, do some gardening and plan my next moves.

    As I have no more definate events in the near future and as holidays and butterfly expeditions are on the horizon I have decided to finish off some projects that have been on the back burner for a while.

    Jewellery wise I have a very overdue commission to finish for a friend which involves some silversmithing techniques I havn't tried yet. Argh !! scary  and some unfinished ideas to make pieces to match some of my dresses that are really bright and colourful.

    Theres also the garden to sort out. I've realised its too late to plant some of the seeds I bought when on a recent walk I noticed how many wild flowers are out in the hedges. I'm not great at knowing their names so I've got myself an app so I can identify what I see when I'm out walking. I'll post some of my results later this weekend.

  2. Hi everyone,

    well the sunshine over the Bank Holiday bought out the crowds and we were very busy at Barley Wood Walled garden. Visitors to the Ethicurean Restaurant who knew nothing about the Art Trail wandered across to see us too.

    Just wanted to announce there has been a slight change in plan so I won't be there today, Tuesday 7th May but will be there tomorrow, wednesday and this saturday coming and don't forget all the workshops at Venue 22 are closed this thursday.

    Just to tempt you here are some photos of the Studio,
