I think that I have have fallen into a state of doldrums! This has to be gotten through and left behind but I am on the way using more and more time each day on my various projects getting ready for the show in Sweden in August and of course the Open Studios Køge event in Whit. Fatigue is my worst enemy which means that I have to be much better at planning my time and not waste it on unimportant things. The two kids are inspired by a photo taken by the famous German photographer , August Sander,1936. He is not happy but she is quite proud of her new dress and the bows in her hair. I have one small detail to stiffen before they are hung up at the beginning of June. I am going to hang all the various outdoor pieces up for the Open Studio Event which is a good chance to try it all out. The first spiders webs is “flat” but the second will be in a horn shaped form with the spider sitting at the bottom.
We are contemplating our next move, whether we should move or whether we should just stay put and let the kids do the tidying up after us. we are blessed in that we may be able to build a smaller house on a plot which is part of the present property. There has been a house there through until 1910 and we are trying to get building permission from the council, however, this is proving to be a headache so it might just end up with us staying on here. This is in fact no real problem since the house is well suited for people getting older but it is a wee bit big! The bottom line is that we have been looking round at houses in an attempt to make up our minds and we have come to realise that we cannot get what we have built up here. Our workshops and our wild life!! I was out feeding the birds this morning and along came a pheasant couple the cock clucking away as if I was not there, less than ½ meter from my feet and not a bit worried about me and my dog. I can watch the heron try to catch fish in our ponds, watch a deer kid take it´s first steps, watch the squirrels and the fox from my sitting-room window. Either we build a house next door or we stay here!! Over the bridge to Sweden tomorrow for an interview for an article in a newspaper for the exhibition in August. No rest for the wickedThis is just Tenara thread and wire.
