Here we are in mid October and I've not written a post for ages. August was a quieter month with good family times, a time for reflection, thanks for health, family and every day.
Time for big Will to spend time with little William
before flying back to Oz on September 1st.
What a year this has been. Will is now in USA, holding meditation meetings, talks, inspiring people and promoting his book. All going well apart from collapsing and being taken to hospital; all OK now but a reminder that the journey continues.
My September was busy with Herts Open Studios, open for 3 weekends which were good although, as usual, quieter than Cambs open studios; taking work to a gallery in Long Melford - Jessica Muir, a great day at Gransden Show with a stand in the Craft marquee and a lot of preparation for an amazing print show in Cambridge. I was fortunate to take part in the inaugural exhibition of Cambridge Original Printmakers, 40 printmakers showing their work in the wonderful Pitt building right in the centre of Cambridge. The aim was to raise the profile of hand pulled printmaking, which it certainly did. There were talks and demos and a fabulous variety of techniques on show. Heaps and heaps of visitors over the 9 days made it all worthwhile and it was lovely to meet other printmakers new to me. I learnt a lot and made new friends.
From this to.....
to the private view.
Friends Kate, Sue and Tracey. It was a great experience for us all. The chelsea buns from Fitzbillies over the road kept us all going!
