Well I can say that this week has been so busy I am not sure how we managed it.
All our lambs are now born. three girls and two boys all doing well and our ladies are great mums.
The ducklings are outside enjoying the sun and the interaction with the other fowl in the garden. And of course our Marlow is keeping a close eye on it all.With all this new life going on I am also getting ready for Amand Hislop to arrive on Friday for the weekend. what an exciting weekend it will be and I for one cannot wait. (there is still time to book. Just go to http://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/amanda-hislop) .
Also I am getting ready fro the Kirstie Allsopp Hand Made Fair in May at Ragley Hall. Three days of excitement with like minded people. Lucky John is coming with me. I will be taking my Sharins, lampshades, bags and other sewn items along with the Powertex brooches and two new products if I can get them finished in time.
I have finished my Time and Tide pieces for the Embroiderers Guild Exhibition in June and I have a piece for the Exhibition at Thornham too. These take place during the Open Studios from 26th May to the 10th June. but more about this at a later date.
The studio is a real mess at the moment with so much happening and on top of all this I have to get my accounts in for my accountant. Not a job I enjoy I have to say.
One change this week in the running of our programme is the Embroidery Mondays. Rather than booking up a 6 week block you can book in for the afternoon from 2 pm till 4.30 pm. This appears to be working better than the evenings and you can book in to work on what ever you wish to learn. It is basic beginners embroider and you can learn at your own pace. It is open for all ages.
Take a look at the workshops coming up and see if you fancy any of them
