After 15 years +

Of hoarding textile supplies it was time to have a big sort out.
Remember a few days ago I mentioned I had sorted through every single cupboard, box and shelf?  Sorting out things that were no longer required, or no longer part of my art practise…..

If you live in the area you’ll see that Factory Shop address?  Thats Ward Graphics – so how long ago did I buy that roll of paper?

I even sorted BOOKS.  Don’t faint.

I sorted out so much we needed two cars…. and it only just fitted all in.

And this was the result on Saturday, along with three other friends the sale of “stuff”.2017-07-08 08.25.42

Thank you to everyone who attended.

Kitchen revamp

I’ve also spent many, many hours in June in the kitchen, ripping out cupboards and replacing the two sinks with new fittings and new purpose built cupboards.
Five coats of paint on the walls, tiles on the sink tops and surrounds (I love tiling!)

A final coat of paint on the floor and  then to recreate an oasis of calm….2017-07-02 15.37.29-1

A close up of the candlestick.  It was in the garden for two years looking bohemian and weird (I like weird)…. and for a change I gave it a wash and gave it a home indoors.

Beautiful textures and colours.2017-07-02 15.38.34-1
