The car is all packed and ready for the show tomorrow.
Above is some new work to unveil.
If you’re coming along please say hello – I’m in the Countryside Tent.
Please NOTE – the phone signal in the area is down so we can ONLY TAKE CASH.
Bring LOTS of it – There are no cash machines on site.
Juicy colours! Finishing a picture for the Glendale show on Monday in a field near Wooler. I’ll be in the countryside tent. Say hello if you visit.
The Cheviot Centre & Tourist Information, Wooler stock a wide selection of cards and selected prints. They look fabulous on display.
And off to a talk in Whitley Bay.
Not often I take photos of myself. I now have new (frameless) glasses,
so it’s already out of date!
I do like wearing that red lippy though.
Melrose Book Festival, in a thunderstorm, with a hero of mine.
Some of the new ideas filtering through, influenced by the archive research, walks and drives in the hills and reading about #realwomenslives in the eighteenth century.
Still lots of reading to do for my uni course and I’ve spent many hours in the archives in Edinburgh and Hawick. Great fun.
Sad stories, happy stories and #realwomenslives
from 1707-1830 in Duns, Dunbar and Lauder.
I’ll tell you some of these stories once I’ve collated the data.
Still many, many more hours of research to do.
And Rembrandt is in Edinburgh – go see if you can, it’s a great exhibition.
Along with home grown beetroots, carrots, lettuce and radishes.
It’s been a good year in the garden.
