It’s been a while since I last posted.There have been a number of reasons-a busy summer and undertaking other projects have meant I haven’t been able to get in to the studio.
In the meantime I have de-cluttered and deep-cleaned the house-numerous bags to the charity shops,rubbish for the tip and making use of Gumtree.According to the principles of Feng Shui,the energy must be zipping around the rooms now…..

The children went back to school with all that entails-activity and cost-wise!

This week the weather was beautiful and I decided to tackle the neglected garden.We’re putting in a patio area so we’ve somewhere to eat our BBQs next year. More bags for the tip…..

Husband is currently looking after a large property where he tends the massive garden.Today we started harvesting the fruits…damsons,plums,cooking and eating apples……


Tomorrow I’ll be busy making damson jam and plum jam…..

For dessert tonight I made a batch of plum and oat muffins -delicious warm….

Sadly the Crown Gallery in Carlisle ,the marvellous venture of Joe and Julie will be closing its doors later this year so my exhibition starting October has had to be  cancelled.
The other sad news is that our local art shop in Dumfries,Art-astic is also closing.I’ve been popping in to stock up on supplies ……

Thick watercolour paper,48 Derwent Inktense pencils and a selection of gorgeous soft pastels will hopefully get me inspired and back into the studio…..
