I have found my way through the trees of panic and have come upon a peaceful glade.
All my work for Origin is made and in it's respective frames, waiting to be bubble wrapped. The unframed pieces are all mounted and cellophane wrapped, priced and waiting in a new cardboard box, my greetings cards are all shiny and new and are in their cardboard box also waiting alongside to be placed in my car on Wednesday when we drive to Spitlafeilds Market. All is in order and I feel calm.
I am very excited to see how all the pieces look when we hang them on Wednesday, in my head my booth is all worked out, but I know the hanging plan will change when I actually see the space. I must remember not to cram them all up.
Today I compile the massive list of all the things I need to remember to take with me to make my collection of work hang and my booth work, therefore lots of foraging around the studio and trying to remember where I put my blue tack! Where did I put my blue tack?

I am working on new pieces for Origin, at the moment it all seems up in the air with no order and I can't seem to find my way and make sense of it all. I think therefore I am in panic mode. There is so much to do and of course as always, so little time in which to do it all in.
I must just try to keep calm and carry on, and to add to all this - I am so excited to!

Origin Craft Fair 23rd - 29th September 2010 presented at Old Spitalfields Market London E1
I was so wonderfully looked after whilst I was on my visit to the embroiderers Guild of Market Harborough. We had a splendid day all stitching away to create machine embroiderers in various themes and sizes, and my, did the day just fly! but, I am very happy to say everyone involved used the day to its full potential and beautiful pictures, brooches and pieces were created and worn home!
