I've been bad.........

saw a tutorial, wrote down the instructions and didn't make a note of the blog.      I thought it would make a fun day with "The Girls"  and it did, so if anyone recognises the home of this tutorial please let me know.
This is the fun table
and this is the result.
Mine have found a home here
On top of my print tray which is slowly being filled.

Last weekend the weather being too disappointing to go to Kentwell we took ourselves off to Margate, not a seaside day either but we went to see the Grayson Perry Exhibition at the Turner Contemporary.  It was very good, so well displayed so that you could walk right round the vases. We treated ourselves to fish and chips, well it was the seaside.I didn't take any photographs in the exhibition but did take a few,
a dog having a wonderful time playing hide and seek with his own reflection. We watched for ages, he was having such fun, running away and pouncing back.
Gorgeous green

A whimsical lady
and two ancient Minion relations. So looking forward to to new film.

I love the seaside, the tide was in when we arrived but when we left the harbour looked like this.  Wonderful colours everywhere even on a dull day.

Ye gods........

nearly half way through June...... running catch up as usual these days....

Apparently costs have driven the Prism exhibition away from the, oh so convenient, Mall Galleries to the backstreets of the East End. There were a few exhibits we liked.

Two apologies, one for the poor photographs and two for not making a note note of the artists which is really annoying.
This one is part of an exhibit  by Bea Sewell, all in closed back boxes ready to reveal their secrets of mementoes of her life.
The venue was round the corner from the Geffrye Museum where you can walk through time in different rooms from the 1600s to the 1990s. It also has this lovely garden room,
which we though would make a rather good workroom. I wish!.
The grounds are lovely too with magnificent trees.
We had a peek in Jessie Chorley's shop,
Loved this bunting.
A visit to the East End wouldn't complete without some graffitti. How about this one?

I have actually made something which is now on my workroom door. It started with a stip of canvas, continued on a "and then" basis not knowing what the end product was going to be.  Totally useless article but great fun.
and I have spent some time in the garden where the roses are just coming to there first flush,
DH is improving daily but just in case we can't make it  the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is on line this year. Saves the queues but still hoping to go for real.
