I have had an 'interesting week' this week. I have not fancied chatting to anyone much, just hiding out in my studio. I'm not in a funk or anything, just pondering my navel, thinking about 'life and all that stuff'. Plus getting some 'need to dye and felt wool' out of my system!
With the thinking about life and what I want to do with it thing. I have always wanted to have a functioning studio/gallery. You know, the kind where you practise your art then display it for others to peruse and possibly purchase. Well, that's what I was thinking more seriously about. My studio is too small to set up as a gallery and the people next door, being the kind of people they are they would not be happy about 'hoards' (I wish) coming into their street.
So what to do? I want my cake and eat it too you see. I only want to be open maybe 3 to 4 days a week and not every weekend. I decided today that I want to be able to stop, smell the roses, pull weeds, maybe bake some scones between rolling the felt and fulling it. And I don't want to have to pay too much for it.

Maybe I will have to wait until the next house we build (down the road a bit away from the neighbours) which is at least 2 to 3 years away. We will build exactly what I want in that home.
In the meantime, I will put it out to the Universe to sort it out for me!
This is what I have been up to this week.

Ive sold three of these little fella's since Monday, so guess what I will be doing for the next week!
