We were away this weekend for a well earned break on our boat, which we keep in Tarbert, Loch Fyne. The weather was good. Dry and pretty sunny all weekend........but it was a bit windy! Well, too windy to think about sailing with two wobbly small people! We just "caravan-ed it", didn't go sailing, hung out, rowed round the bay in the dingy, ate ice creams and sweeties and walked!
It's recharged my batteries after the battle to get my studio emptied and decorated and I'm raring to go!
I thought I'd show you what I'm working on at the moment and how I go about making a papercut.......

I had a brilliant day with some friends on Friday at the Pittenween Arts Festival. It was a glorious, sunny day and the whole of the East Neuk looked gorgeous. It's the first year that I've been to the Arts Festival and I'll definately be back! I've put together a board on Pinterest of my bestest favourites!!
My preparations for Perthshire Open Studios are now well underway. Just as well because it's only 3 and a bit weeks until it starts! I'm excited, nervous and terrified all in equal measure! I've almost finished painting the studio and I can't believe how much better it looks. It's been on the "to do" list for at least 3 years but other "more essential" things kept overtaking it. I'll post some before and after photies when it's all done.

I've managed to get the studio emptied (mostly!) and the ceiling has had a coat of paint. Now I'm doing the boring bit.....sanding all the skirtings, door frames, the door and around the window. It'll all get done eventually but it's sooooo dull!
On a slightly more exciting note I also managed to get these two paper cuts finished, framed up and off to their new homes.

Right......back to the sanding. My consolation is that I'll soon be putting everything back in the studio.
