Vile here today- wildly windy, lashing rain with hardly a break between one 'shower' and the next. Looks like a return of 'curse of Open Studio' style weather....busy day indoors preparing. My studio is off the kitchen, so the kitchen gets hi-jacked for the fortnight of Open Studios, with me putting paintings up each day after we have breakfasted and taking them down swiftly once I close for the day so I can make the dinner and use the table. Doing a dummy run this afternoon to see if everything fits where it is supposed to go. More hand printed cards to make, but otherwise, everything ready- matching quilts, table runners and cushions in position, two stage costumes on dummies, paintings laid out and hung or displayed on easels , brooches on display boards just in case anyone braves the deluge outside and visits...assuming my direction signs and posters don't fly away, I've rescued them twice already today!
