In My Studio

We have been working hard.

BeAnne and I.

We have, really, we have.

I have been commissioned to make a short film for a local community group and they want to use my amateur animations skills.

By actually working (and not playing) in my shudio, I am discovering it’s little ways, like I need proper curtains. To start with I used an old throw of Floss’ and tacked it to the window but today I found I definitely need working curtains.

As I didn’t have any to hand, I ended up taking off my thermal vest and hanging it to block out the light.  Don’t laugh, it worked a treat.  Necessity is the mother of invention.

Outside Spring is thinking about appearing, if rather early.  We have snowdrops and their arrival always put a smile on my face.

The rosa rugosa is starting up again – OH gave it the hacking, sorry, pruning, of a lifetime.

The daffodils are up and away too.

The horses are enjoying the weak, if slightly warm(ish) Shetland sunshine too.  Haakon is resting with Kappi and Iacs in the background.  Some days he is a tired old boy with no energy and then I suck my teeth and worry about him.

Having said Spring is on its way, I fully expect it to snow tomorrow.

    Would blinds be better rather than curtains? They take up much less space when they’re not in use, and are a bit more precise in blocking out light.

    Wow…it sure does look like Spring is thinking about arriving near you. Lucky you. I love seeing the snow drops and daffodils thinking about blooming. They won’t be thinking about doing that here until sometime in late May! That’s a loonngg way off from now. So I’ll enjoy your great pictures and stories while I’m waiting for Spring to arrive. Love your studio and all your hanging curtains. Can’t wait to see your spectacular inventions!

    Congrats on your commission — your dream of having your own studio and making short films is becoming a reality! And look at those cute wool-felted, ahem, actors, who are eagerly waiting in holding for their call from the director! (who is also executive producer/writer/etc.) Get your gown ready for the 2020 BAFTA awards!
