Come join me "upstairs" from the Studio, a place to relax and talk with friends. Here you'll find clips of my stuff, woolgathering about the animals in the family, news about shows and events and links to other sites that I find too good not to mention. Pull up a cushion and have some cake( there should always be cake) and tea, and lets discuss the amazing world of Art in it's many forms!

Poetic thought

Windy Nights
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Whenever the moon and stars are set,
Whenever the wind is high,
All night long in the dark and wet,
A man goes riding by.
Late in the night when the fires are out,
Why does he gallop and gallop about?

Whenever the trees are crying aloud,
And ships are tossed at sea,
By, on the highway, low and loud,
By at the gallop goes he.
By at the gallop he goes, and then
By he comes back at the gallop again.

Time is speeding along since I got back from the Phila. Doll and Teddy Bear Convention! I've already had info on next year's event. Susan And Terry Quinlan are the Supreme Convention planners, designing every move so that It will be a "One of A Kind" experience.  After one of these pampered stretches it takes time to come back to earth and get down to the business of following up sales, paperwork, etc.

Mary Jane found a new owner,
also Grapefruit Baby,

and Adri may be on his way soon.

This week I'll mix some gardening in with once again attempting to work out a small ball jointed mannequin in felt, and the sketch for my next sculpt.
I'm really excited about this one; as with Adri I have found a face that intrigues me to the point of wanting to work round the clock once I get started...
Summer seems to stretch out endlessly before me, but I won't be fooled into relaxing too much.
Till the next post, have a creative day in your little corner of the world!
