People can be kind and generous. I needed some very heavy duty card to mount some of my fabric samples on, so I called into the Chantry picture framer in Morpeth to see if I could have some off cuts, and came away with a bagful. I've been able to prepare more bits for my colour boards, thanks to his generosity. So a bit more progress has been made. I need to get it all ready for class next week, and I have other calls on my time. My sister in law and her 9 year old daughter are up in Northumberland for a few days. We don't get to see much of them as they live in Bath, so it was lovely to have a couple of hours with them this afternoon. Tomorrow I have lunch in Newcastle planned with a good friend, and there's a jumble sale I want to investigate on Saturday morning. Plus the online painting workshops with Tammy of daisyyellowart.com that I haven't been able to get stuck into yet. I must get all my textiles prep done first to create the space for those.
