“Maddy saw the grand unveiling tonight through slightly misty eyes and has not stopped looking at it since.”
I am taking part in the 8th Bead Soup Blog party. This is what my soup partner Susan thinks of the soup I sent her…

My Wire, Sand and India ink picture “Farmhouse memories” was displayed at the Artisan Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre Gallery in January-February 2014.
The last 5-6 weeks have been very frustrating, with mild panic at times, but I am very positive about the Stamford Artisans Exhibition!
Later this month we will be at our eagerly awaited Artisan Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre.
