Tempus fugit

It’s been a busy couple of months. It all started with the 2017 BADFA convention, a day out in London, and a Ministry of Mixology weekend. I was glad to have a long weekend at Easter just to recover.

The BADFA 2017 convention went well. Peggy Harris came over from Tennessee to spend the weekend painting with us, Suz Humphreys made time for us on the Friday, and I took a ‘mucky mixed media’ class on Saturday.IMG_7803

Lighter sessions were had on Friday night – Kim’s fun night with a quiz and modelling balloons, and Saturday night – a Powertex demo by Claire Holmes. You’ll have to visit my other site for details324052BA-5A36-4D7E-A840-7F7F08C7B5D0

We held the event in Crick again this year. So far we can’t find a venue to beat the price, service, and central location. Chances are we’ll be back there next year.

On Tuesday after convention I took Julie to London for a photo day. She learned in her class while I played tourist. I hopped on and off the tube, sightseeing, and ended up at the Science Museum for lunch. Other than losing her on the Underground between Euston and Waterloo, it was an uneventful day.

But the following weekend was full-on, again. Ministry of Mixology in Coventry with France Papillon and Kate Crane; guest appearance by Andy Skinner. The two days were filled with all the usual MoM fun; France on Saturday, and Kate on Sunday. An evening of make’n’takes filled the bit in the middle.

Then it was back to earth, and a return to work – but inspired with lots of ideas and projects.
