Everything is so hectic at the moment. I am working on 5 pieces of work at once . I am creating 'Pods and Webs' for part of a degree assignment where I am seeking to provoke people's reaction to the issue of GM crops. Fortunately this is reaching a conclusion so should be ready before assessment in May and also when I have to take it to Mary Cozen-Walker's studio prior to this.
I am trying to complete a banner of 'My Fair Lady' for display at a flower show in early May and continuing to work on 2 pieces (natural abstracts') for home consumption plus a piece for our next major exhibition in October. Final work in progress is for my daughter's prom - a bead embroidered evening bag- but at least I have until the end of June to complete that- wait a minute that's 6 - no wonder I'm confused!
The ERTF launch Day is nearly upon us and I have been overwhelmed by the response to membership and the conference. With just over a week to go I have dotting the 'i's and crossing the't's to make sure the event runs smoothly- I've even got around to writing my speech. The Team I have had behind me have done a wonderful job so lets hope that everyone involved will have a great time and that it is the start of something really special for Textile Art in the East of England.
