Today it is a beautiful June morning- sunshine,puffy white clouds, bit of a chill breeze but the Blackbirds have been shouting since around 4am so they aren't worried. Why is the weather so lovely today? Because it is my 'day off' from open Studio. Grey and mostly raining all weekend when I was open! The 'Curse of Open Studio' is working its weather magic again this year. A few brave souls arrived through the persistent drizzle yesterday, but it has been very quiet. So quiet I got some lino cut- it was noticeable that the temperature dropped during the day as the lino got harder to cut- but by the end of the day I had finished cutting and played around with some trial prints.
