We are back from Nelson - a successful visit and Christmas is done as well.
Nelson was beautiful, our one day at the beach was perfect and the water felt so warm.
We went to the Suter Art Gallery which is open again after major refurbisnment. It is very beautiful inside and retains much of the character of the original building. And the cafe has fabulous food.
Now I am home I am endeavouring to get back to "normal". Today is my afternoon at "Heart of Arts" gallery and I will catch up with Corrinne - slowly adding structure again.
I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and survived with little damage. Best wishes, Trisha.
Oh, my goodness another week has flown by and Christmas is nearly here. It's time to wash the sheets again, counting the weeks by washing the sheets time? And I am trying to think about what I have been doing. I haven't been thinking about "art/craft/textiles/fabric" that's for sure. Although we did go out for drinks last night with the "Heart of Arts" volunteers and there was an interesting discussion where someone suggested if the work went on the wall it was "art".
I feel as if I have been busy - doing what I ask? My studio and desk are messy, obviously I haven't kept pace with keeping them in some sort of order.
We have a Christmas tree, very minimalist and very designer(?) at this point in time and somewhat crooked.
And no presents (yet).
I have been trying to sort out a MASSIVE mess at the bank. And we are going to Nelson again next week - hopefully the bank will then get sorted. I just hate being passed from one person to another, each one is a new start and no one talks to anyone and all emails etc are on file. Since September!!!
I have volunteered at "Heart of Arts" and been to a volunteers' meeting, and I have faithfully taken my morning photo and published it on Instagram and Facebook and eight of the latest photos are here on my website. After this week I am going to set myself a challenge maybe a "100 Days" challenge, maybe just an idea challenge. Hopefully by next week I will have all this sorted, in my head anyway if nowhere else.
