Hectic days

So far this week like last week is going like a train. So much to do and so little time to do it all in. I was at my exhibition in Peebles both yesterday and todayand also in the Sunflower restaurant! That can't continue, specially as there is no opportunity this week to go for a good long hike!


But it is very gratifying to find the gallery pretty busy each time I pop in, some pieces have been sold and everyone is very complimentary. My visitors book is filling up nicely too with visitors from as far afield as Florida, Australia and the Czech Republic.


And while I've taken my eye off the ball at home, everything in the garden is continuing to grow and John helpfully points me in the way of new treasures to blip (i.e. photograph). The marigold above is my blip for today and the clematis, called Sealand Gem, was my blip from yesterday. A picture of this one features on one of the collages in the exhibition that I showed you a few blogs back here.


I'm taking a break tomorrow, will be back in the gallery on Thursday morning, at a Japanese exhibition in Edinburgh on Friday and at the Loch Lomond Quilt Show on Saturday. Pheeuw!

Visiting the gallery tomorrow (dog-sitting in Edinburgh for my daughter so couldn't miss the opportunity of a quick dash to Peebles and really looking forward to seeing a whole body of your gorgeous work in the flesh) - shame you won't be there but may well see you at the Japanese exhibition on Friday.

ooh my, so very busy you are -- but then again it sounds good, Frieda. I love the photo of your exhibit, thanks so much for that! It gives me a sense of what it is like. So delightful for you to find visitors when you pop in, that must be rewarding!! well, keep going, you are doing great and you can always think about what you will be creating next until you have time to actually get to it! xoxo lenna

Sales!!!! Yippee :) Which ones have sold? I hope you are happy! More money to buy more fabric and beads :):):)

I am still hopeful of getting across, unfortunately I need Ian to be here and he's not :( Saturdays I've been working/football matches/taxi service for a party in Amble

This is such a lovely write-up about your show, and also our time together. I'm so happy that more of those little red 'sold' dots are showing up! As we discussed, the show is so beautifully hung and displays your work to its absolute best advantage.

I can not imagine what it feels like to walk into an exibition and see people all looking at your art work! I am so thrilled for you.
I know what you mean about busy, I have been very busy here, although with different things. I hope you are able to slow down soon so you can go for one of your lovely hikes.
The first photo is so stunning. You do Mother Nature justice : )
Hugs,
Terri
