So 'free' time at home - not quite what we all expected. But I'm lucky, though I've lost a lot of work I live in a house in a lovely spot and have a small garden. The Royal School of Needlework, Embroiderer's Guild, Jay and Co workshop, Good Life Centre course and, most sadly, The Repair Shop have all stopped for now. But this crisis will pass and I'm determined to be ready when it does and keep myself gainfully employed until then. NHS volunteering came first and now I've set to seeing what I can sew! I've already done some video tutoring by Skype which went well I think. I'm also getting my designs and thoughts ready for when we come out of the other side of this crisis. I'm going to start informal embroidery groups like my Kendal Group in Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale; I think they will be a great tonic as we emerge from 'distancing'. I'm also planning to try to resurrect the RSN@Lancaster programme, and perhaps curate an exhibition in Lancaster Castle. In the meantime I can do repairs and designs and advice. When I'm not enjoying quality time with Luna. Please stay well.
