Bowled Out

It's been a busy time, The Material Girls have had their exhibition it all seemed to go off really well. Now I'm starting to think about what I'm going to do for the next one.
ERTF had their second conference it was a really wonderful day, I'm sure that everyone enjoyed it. The Monday before that my mother in law died, it wasn't sudden she had suffered for quite a while.
Last weekend my daughter moved out of home into a flat share with a friend, it was quite hard work, I've never known someone with so many clothes! When I go into her room here there are still loads of clothes left so the charity shops should do OK in the next couple of weeks. This is the second time shes lived away from home, last time it was while she was at uni, so I knew it was only for 3 years, this time it feels more final. I do understand shes moved back to where all her friends are, its not far away but I'll miss her.
Onto brighter things, last week I finally had my last sample and experimental piece signed off so now I can concentrate on the final projects. The wall panel seems to be coming along OK, I've lots of ideas but its getting them onto paper and then into stitch thats proving to be the problem, but I'll get there in the end!
The ERTF web site is up and running now so give it a look!
