"The grace to be a beginner is always the best prayer for an artist. The beginner's humility and openness leads to exploration. Exploration leads to accomplishment. All of it begins at the beginning, with the first small and scary step".
Well I took that first step on Ann Medd late on Thursday evening and I must admit it is a little scary with the over one on 35 count. It is so hard on my eyes but I will persevere.
I took ATS to the framers yesterday and the young man's face fell when I unrolled it. Bless him, he always does a good job, hopefully it will be ready in a week or two.
Yesterday was another crazy Friday with changeovers on the cottages. I surprised myself with a repair I managed to carry out, a girl should always have a few screwdrivers to hand and a youtube tutorial for guidance.
When we bought Trewoon Ray, who is not at all practical, gave me a tool kit the first Christmas and it has been used many times since.
He is, however, wonderful in many other ways. He has always encouraged me with my needlework, takes a keen interest and never begrudges stash purchases.
I will never forget coming home from work one day to find that as a surprise he had arranged for a selection of my samplers to be framed and hung on the wall. (Thank you my darling, that was one of those special acts that will remain with me for ever).
It has been a glorious spring day and we have spent the morning out of doors. We visited Millie in her garden at Trewoon.
We like to spend time with her although she is always in our hearts no matter where we are.
The birds were out in force today and I spent quite a while watching and photographing them.
