Our best side


What a week! Not only am I occupied with Open Studio, but Mr T has organised a garden party to link up with old school and college friends he has recently connected up with.  It is a lovely idea, but I could have done with a bit of a break between the two events - well I have got a week after the OS finishes.  We are hoping the weather changes for the better! Lots of preparations have been needed after having some work done round the house and generally reorganising EVERYTHING.  This is us sitting on our new bench which Mr T started 5 years ago at occupational therapy before it was cut for stroke victims. It has been living in pieces behind the sofa, would you believe, but now with much thanks to some friends and a proper electic screw driver it is finished.
"Men at work"
It got its final coat of stain yesterday.

Only two more opportunities to visit our studio Wednesday and Saturday  Details are here on Sally's Blog.
Did I mention Chrissie from Niminyfingers came last Wednesday. How lovely was that?
It would be lovely to see you too, if you're near by... but wherever you are have a great week.

Now all you need is some warm sunshine to be able to sit out on that bench. Dave made one for our garden earlier this year but it hasn't been used much lately!! I know we needed rain but every day?!

Wish I lived near enough to drop by .... Sounds fab. Very nice bench by the way :-)

That's a nice photo of you two, I don't believe we've seen Mr T before! Always good to see men at work, I've been putting mine under pressure recently putting up shelves and so on. Most satisfying, especially with my mug of tea in hand. Sorry not to be able to visit you at the studio but wishing you lots of luck for a profitable couple of days.

Hoping you get years and years of sitting on that bench together. That is a lovely shot of you.... The weather here is just dire, so would like to think you are getting a better deal where you are. Hope that Chrissie behaved herself!!!!!!

You're looking all cosy there on that lovely bench. Now that I've got some planting up the pergola I need a bench to sit & look at it - the space has been on the lawn for years!

I think people up here are used to me taking pics of the underside of things when most people take the view!

Hi Jill. Just back from Sweden. I am having to work on Wednesday in St.Albans and on Saturday it's our garden party so getting to the exhibition looks unlikely. Pity as I wanted to get Trish a new purse like the one you gave her. She loved it and she's lost it complete with contents.

Hope you get lots of visitors for the last days of Open Studios. And that the garden party goes well.
