I've gone, shuffled off to share the Tart's blog - you'll find me there now, when she lets me near the computer...

Wild and Woolly




Busy old life - Open Days have been and gone - and I was only allowed to see the select few visitors who don't mind being bounced at. Otherwise I was next door with Lindsay's Mum, throwing a tantrum because all the fun was happening without me! Bah humbug.


However, H and L had a fine time talking to friends and new visitors, and selling goodies to them. Prints and originals both sold as did Lindsay's big collage in black and white that you can see on the wall in one of the photos. Jam and chutney and other edibles left by the basketful - thankfully, otherwise we might have drowned in the stuff. Hugh's fresh baked bread was a hit and now he wants to open a bakery!


After the weekend they abandoned me yet again to take pictures to a gallery an hour from here - I would have been more than happy to squeeze into the wee van with all those big fragile canvas panels and framed pictures but it was not to be. I don't think Lindsay has got over me removing one of her wee teddy bears from the 'shop' and nibbling its handspun jumper off, ever so delicately, as I lay in front of the stove one evening...


The weather here is grim - lashing rain and wind and lots of flooded fields (and garden). I've been out for a run and a paddle this morning and am now debating whether to stay in the kitchen where Hugh is making soup or in the living room beside the stove. Kitchen first, I think.

Wofffff hi Ash, thank you for the present, I am being neglected too, there is an open day here on Sunday, it is a dogs life indeed. I am very very happy that someone is thinking of me! She will blog you later today. Woof woof, wag and snore. Coco

AAAAAAAAAArg I love the painting, is it sold? if not how big and how much? (I will probably faint when I do the conversion to Rands and add postage, but humour me!!)

Sorry Miss, painting sold at Christmas! Funnily enough only last night there was an e-mail from another lady who wanted it - I have promised her a photograph of a newer work with similar colours so will let you know too.

As for c*ts, well I have to say his redeeming feature is his name! Lindsay is off to look at your blog any second now - she's in work avoidance mode...
