It’s been action packed and fun here today! Annette is leaving in the morning to catch 4 ferries and 5 trains home to her little Danish island and as a result we were out and about until just about 5 minutes ago. In addition to this I managed to organise public liability insurance (thanks to MAST) for my new studio at Duckett’s Grove, sign the contracts, pick up the key and actually bring Annette to see the studio and the beautiful gardens there which are open to the public every day. We then headed in to Carlow town and had a snack with Alan before visiting Philip and Mary Cushen at Cushendale Woollen Mill in Graiguenamanagh. Annette stocked up on kilos of my beloved mohair waste and woven off cuts, I’m looking forward to seeing how she incorporates them into her felting! On our way home we called in to friend and neighbour James so that Annette could see some Irish cows being milked, all in all a busy and successful day so far.
I did promise to post more pictures from Scotland yesterday and will do so tomorrow, I just wanted to share the exciting news with you of getting the new studio keys today!!!
