We met with the builder who's going to be making our studios yesterday and due to a job being postponed he can now start our job next month. This is good news especially as we live in a place where waiting lists of a year or longer are not unheard of. I have occasional feelings of 'oh the money could be better spent on something else, I don't take up much space etc' before I take myself in hand. It is going to be heaven to have a space which is all mine, where nothing has to be put away at the end of the day. That's what bugs me - we have lots of space in the house but tidying work away really gets in the way of any flow or sense of ease that might otherwise develop.
Artapestry 2 has opened in Angers and goes on till May - just before I'm due to go there in June. I think I will have to find a way of getting there sooner. The last time I saw a big exhibition of large scale tapestries was at the Harley Gallery in Welbeck (where Follow a Thread is now on) and must be at least 10 years ago. How ridiculous!
