Molly and I went to Chelmsford yesterday. Lately I am finding going a long way from home very stressful. So got in a bit of a panic, that makes me tired.
We were made very welcome by the staff and Evelyn at the Community Bookshop and Thrift Store in Market Road Chelmsford. Molly was allowed in both shops!! That is so rare and thank you to the staff, one for letting her in, two for making a fuss of her and three for selling my art.
All the staff except for a couple are volunteers and they are doing a great job too. The book shop has loads of excellent books, all sorted by category and or author. Right now they have a sale on History related titles. The charity provides mobility aids and advice to those who find getting around a large shopping centre a challenge.
Now the number of artists selling their work, in the shop, has increased and the shop looks so bright and friendly. You can sit on a sofa, browse the art and books. Then pop into the thrift store which is just around the corner. Right now the artists have a Valentines display.
No time or energy for art so painting a day has got put on hold. Today I have been to visit a lady who had some valuable collectibles for sale. Oh dear they weren't, had to break it to her gently and advise the boot fair. So wasted journey, never mind I got a cup of coffee and had a fuss from her dog, Honey.
I finally got to sort out the sheet music I bought at the boot fair over a year ago. Right at the bottom I found this........................
Very busy on the 3rd mannequin, nearly finished. Here's a bit of the French Oh lala skirt.
