What a busy summer it was!
After the annual Art Trail I prepared work for a little pop-up gallery in which I showed my work together with 4 other Kerikeri artist friends very successfully. And I had work in 3 more galleries which also sold quite a lot of it.
So I had to slow down the last week, everything had become too exhausting and my body doesn't like that, hopefully more rest and a double up of medication will fix it.
I'd like to focus for a while on the knitting machine again to make some new garments for the coming colder weather. How it looks we will not travel to Europe this winter, the idea of another housesitter nightmare is not very tempting beside of all the madness all over the world. I'm sad not to see my son, but they live their own live anyway and we are not really part of it anymore, hardly hear anything from there and I wonder sometimes about being welcome at all, which is wrong of course. Life is busy for everybody and worklife in Germany is very demanding.
Well I am looking forward to cosy time at the fire in some month, not so much the mess of the firewood and lighting the fire in the morning, and lots of time to do new experiments.
