Only one more day of canvassing and then the electorate vote in the local elections from 7am – 10pm tomorrow. Felting has really taken a back seat over the last couple of weeks but as soon as the weekend and the count are over I will be fully up to speed again, hurrah!! My biggest concern then will be preparing work for 2 upcoming exhibitions (one to be hung next Thursday!) and sorting out my wrap up presentation about my Craft in the Classroom project which takes place on Saturday 13th June. Although I ususally work pretty well to a deadline I definitely will need to prioritise over the next week and don’t want to feel rushed when creating the work for either show. My plan is to create some small and medium sized felt pods which I will suspend in a cluster and I also need to make a large rug/wall hanging expanding the concept of ridges and bumps as with the swirling water sample piece. Off now to get on the campaign trail again, I look forward to properly continuing with this blog next week!!
You’re almost to the finish line, though it sounds like you have an equally busy week coming up. I know you must just be exhausted. Keep up the good work.
Can’t wait to see and hear all about the ideas that have been going through your head while you’ve been finishing up with the campaign. Good luck Alan.
You are one active woman!!!Canvasing is labor intensive but it has an element of fun–talking to the people is very stimulating. I speak for many, we anxiously await to see your new creations as your ideas are fresh and inspiring.
Hi Nicola – I am breaking into a sweat just reading your blog. Give my best to Alan for tomorrow, I really hope he does well. And good luck to you with the projects you have on. I look forward to hearing all about them when you get time to catch your breath. Love. Sheila x
Best wishes for the upcoming shows and I know you will present exciting ideas. It sounds like no rest after all the canvassing at all! Give my best to Alan and hope you both can take some r&r soon,
Hi good luck with everything and the pod idea sound exciting ,it is achievable but do not burn yourself out felting all hours.
Hi there Nicola–thought of you all day with the elections going on, and wondered how you were holding up!
Good luck with the upcoming shows, and all the prep work for those. My youngest daughter got a felt handbag for her birthday last week, and loves it–couldn’t help but think of you.
Good luck to you and Alan as the results come in! (I’m afraid to look, myself!)
