As we get towards the end of the year, I find myself wondering what's next. After a lot of careful thought, I've decided not to teach at Festival of Quilts next year, though I have signed up to do a couple of shows with Grosvenor (Spalding and Harrogate, if you were wondering). Basically, I just can't afford to subsidise my attendance there. I'm seriously thinking about giving up art for public consumption. It's great being considered inspirational, and all that, but it doesn't pay for paint. People tell me they love my workshops, take the information away and ... nothing happens... I've given this my best shot, and perhaps now, it's time to recognise that I've failed.
