Thanks to everyone who came and visited Lady Bay Open Studios, even though it was so cold!
As you can tell from the pictures, I was set up in my friend Jane's kitchen, which was an excellent venue.
I had a great weekend, met some really lovely people and received great feedback on my work.
I did name cards for the children coming round - there's something rather nice about them being so happy just because you've written out their name in "fancy letters".
Interesting (to me, anyway!) was that last weekend at the Historic crafts event, it was the family tree that was most studied. This weekend I took that, but also my shipping forecast piece that I have not exhibited before, and Shipping Forecast was definitely my star piece, to the extent that I do need to think about how to get some high quality prints made - someone even gave me their details in anticipation of the doing exactly that!
