I've been working in my own elemental direction for years now.
At times it can be a really lonely space.
No one at home has any comprehension of what I do, what needs to be done, or even how to do it. I mean the family understands and is very proud of what I represent, but there was no one close to me in this field in my circle.
My Assistant, Miss Lisa in the US has it all and understands the industry. She is a wonderful support and is my Wonder Woman. However, I now have a PA here at home who is a whiz, she knows the industry, loves working in Textile Art and will become my right hand lady. Its lifting a huge weight off my shoulders.
Miss Roz Thank you.
Preparing my classes for France, Italy and beyond in the coming weeks has been made so much easier. I can actually relax a little before I leave. Checking and double checking is so much easier with four hands and 2 pairs of eyes rather than just mine.
I have an exhibition in Adelaide at AMQF as soon as i arrive home on the 1st of October and I decided that rather than just pop the quilts up for folk to admire I would rather add descriptions and images of just how the quilt came to be.
This label above is just one of them.
Where does the inspiration come from?
How did you draw it out?
How did you put it into a quilt? etc. I hope it is interesting to the viewers.
The Alphabet has been framed and I think it will be a unique exhibition.
I've taken some of the illustrations off the fabric and out into the frame.
Meetings over, I now have a comprehensive a list of things that need attention.
One is to re-invent the blogs and web page. I will have separate blogs for personal things, travel and the Bayeux Discipline
I have a new writing format called 'Scrivener' on the computer so hopefully my lectures, book and casual writing will improve a little, well to be honest I mean more structured.
All in all It's been a really busy week with a lot of work going on in the background to achieve goals. A great deal of planning and a little time off for relaxation.
The frivolous stuff……
My new glasses have arrived and I'm very excited about them, they fit like a glove and I feel so comfortable in them.
I have the house to myself this evening and its a luxury in a funny sort of way.
