For those who were wondering if I'd finally disappeared into the land of blog limbo, I have bad news - you don't get rid of me that easily!
For those who I owe an email or goodies, I haven't forgotten and they'll turn up eventually.
It's been a hectic couple of weeks, but I have been able to create - I just couldn't blog anything as you'll see further on. There's still some hospital trips, shopping and so on, but things are settling down now.
Last weekend I was away to Exmoor for a gathering, and it was good to chill out with friends, and recharge my batteries ready for this week's mayhem and late nights getting ready for Friday night, which saw the preview of the Great Cubby Hole Exhibition entitled "Celebrating the Diversity", featuring works from some very talented people who are part of the community at the Cubby Hole.
The exhibits were fantastic, and covered a huge range of styles including painting, assemblage, rugwork, stitching and much more.
I entered 6 pieces, 3 of which were new and 3 which I've blogged previously. The centre piece of the exhibition was a collaborative work entitled Summer, which we somehow managed to arrange in a cohesive manner that looked brilliant. I also produced a set of 4x4 canvases for sale, with proceeds going to MacMillan.
The preview went well, with many people coming to view works, and many of the exhibitors turning up in fancy dress (scroll down to the bottom if you want a laugh). Some pieces were sold on the night including two of mine (Bird on a wire and 4 seasons). Four of the mini-canvases went too, and the others are still available.
I've not included anybody else's work, as it will be appearing on the Cubby Hole Blog soon, but you may want to keep an eye on the blogs of Sue Roddis, Suzi B, Papillon and That Woman for more about the night.
