Well, Sunday morning and so much to do before the One Of A Kind show. We leave on Tuesday morning to spend the day setting up the booth ready for opening up on Wednesday morning. I have one more gament to make along with it's buttons and need to check over my equipent boxes to see that I have all my booth drapes, poles, hangers, manequin bits, little vacuum cleaner, and a ton of other stuff.
Over the years I've pared it down but when you are in one 10'x10' place for 10 - 12 hours for five days you need some creature comforts. I've been accused of taking too many pairs of shoes... but it's never enough when you're on your feet all those ours. I do have a chair but my bottom hardly sees it. You find yourself running on adreneline when meeting and interacting with old and new clients and people who are seeing you work for the first time, it's exciting, especially after weeks of lone working in the studio, then it's the end of the evening and you find you can hardly move and it's a huge effort just to make it to the car and get into your B&B bed, only to do it all again the next day with a middle aged body that isn't quite as refreshed yet!
My ladies keep me going though and I love them all and that is another reason why I keep doing what I do (aside from being addicted to the fibre arts and..... yes, needing to eat!) So if any of you are reading this I'm looking forward to seeing you all and pardon if I seem a little 'tired'.
.....now where are those manequins?....
