This is his first exhibition layout and is due to have its first public viewing at the end of January - yes he claims it will be finished by then - but he still has houses to make and a couple of dozen trees - that's where I come in - trees. Out of florist wire, tape and modelling clay - just don't ask - at least not for the next few weeks at least. Although I might actually take a series of pics and post them here when things have slowed down at bit.
The trees aside, I have been doing a lot of preparation for my soon to be arranged meeting with my new supervisor (just seem to have got out of the habit of writing, at least academically), I have a paper and personal statement to write for a new VCH webpage, a TV reseacher wanting details about silk mills, three bags, a pair of socks, a shawl all due to be finished all by the end of this month.....
Yesterday afternoon I took a few hours off and went for a play on a very expensive sewing machine - serious money - and it doesn't even make the tea!! It was great fun, although I can't see that I'd ever use all the stitches - but I did make a very nice book cover and then went and left my bag at the shop, so this afternoon when I could have getting on with things I have to drive over and get it back.
And I just bought another spinning wheel - unseen, but working and was made in Whitchurch by a one armed man apparently!!
