hello blog, a nice book and scenes from my studio *and a reminder*
I am being rather shamefully neglectful of my blog at the moment, I'm still reading all of yours and commenting too, but almost a week has passed and I haven't been here at all. I think it's largely because of the blog camp 365, it's turned into a diary of sorts, and maybe that fools me into thinking I have been blogging when I haven't. Anyway, it's hardly cataclysmic or earth-shattering, it doesn't matter at all come to think of it, but still, I don't wish to seem neglectful.
This week has been rather momentous in its own way, Iris started kindergarten and it went wonderfully and very smoothly.
I have made a couple of plates..
Sharpened all my pencils...
And packaged up a couple of orders and carried on with my latest overwhelming obsession, which is to rid this house of all unwanted and unnecessary items, and to that end two bulging bags of clothes went off to the charity shop, it's a good feeling. We're getting there.
Anyway, I have hardly done any thrifting lately, but I did find this lovely book called Make Music - a book of musical experimentation for young people, published 1967. Aren't the illustrations a treat?
Right I'm off to eat a delicious-smelling aubergine and broccoli laksa and what's more, I duly promise to show up here a bit more often.
*ALSO* just a note to say this is the *LAST* week of the sale in the shop, I will be adding all *NEW* things early next week. So go bag some bargains!
