Been up the walls with visitors, and general life stuff. And it's not over yet, another month of upheaval and crazy deadlines to go... (Why do all my deadlines have to be the beginning of September?)
Here's a few examples:
- Electric Picnic: nothing done, be prepared for a very boring display this year, and practically nothing to sell...But then I did say it would be very chilled out sessions
- Irish Crocheted Coral Reef Exhibition, Wicklow: First outing of the Irish Reef on what we hope will be a mini Irish tour. Have pretty much had to bow out, and have been of very little use. (Especially when I forget to attach things to emails, isn't that right Irene!). Am struggling to even get any new toxic coral made.
- Film work: got asked to make a turn of the century, Navaho style, tapestry loom and to weave half a blanket on it. Except the design they gave me is absolutely crazy, (not even American Indian, it's Canadian Indian, but that's me being well, ethnically correct...), and it would take a winter or two at the very least! Then they decided they would let me design and make the original blanket as well as the half-woven blanket, and would I be able to whip up a few more blankets as well!! Did I mention it's silk? OK, a rough silk, open weave, but silk none the less, oh, and I have to dye it as well...Film people, you live in an un-realistic world
- Another commission: a bit hush, hush at the moment, as I don't want to jinx it..
I will blog about each project, after it is over and successfully completed (very optimistic), and I doubt I'll have much time online over the next well, 2 weeks. So, time to go...
Oh, and did I mention I am moving house? Again...
