Well that's another weekend of Open Studios done and dusted... My tenth!
In all the years I have been doing it I've never had such a quiet weekend, whether through recessions or other Wimbledon finals weekends, the number of visitors will fluctuate a little but nearly always average out to the same for each weekend. This year I was down to half the usual number.
I had old work and new work on display... Plenty to see and all for free. Although there was even plenty to buy should that be a reason for visiting.
Yet even the promise of cake didn't lure people in... On Saturday only one slice was taken!
But those visitors who did come were much appreciated and all were lovely about my work. I'm opening the doors again in two weeks time so maybe it will be busier then... I can only hope!
In the middle of it all on Sunday afternoon we had this... No you are not seeing double...
My brother came over with Hector's brother Herbie and for two hours there was absolute puppy mayhem... They were so excited to see each other!
It took all yesterday morning to get the floor clean and then this morning Hector did this... he was helping me with the gardening! He likes gardening... he's also dug up all my beetroot having taken a bite from each one and has now discovered the courgettes!
Never a dull moment eh!
