Firstly thanks for the comments on my previous post (also emails) but I must point out I am NOT on any course at present. The two groups I belong to: Textile 21 and MEG are made up of artists who get together a few times a year to 'do our own thing' but with like minded people - sharing techniques, mini workshop style is part of the remit. We happen to all have connections with Urchfont Manor College and use it as our meeting venue. In July we will have a small exhibition at Urchfont as part of the Open Day so make a note in your diary - its usually the first Sunday of July.
Anyway my lack of Personal Confidence - in fact I feel a bit of a fool (no surprise there) this is not confidence in my creative ability (although that is pretty low too!) but this weather. Normally I have no problem with driving and the weather in general, but today - well I have become the predictable fool!!
As I said before I came home from Urchfont last night - it started snowing very heavily as I drove home (no problem there) and when I got up this morning it was raining so the roads were just slushy. Again No problem - I drove to Urchfont. However after about an hour it started snowing heavily there - this is where the lack of confidence came in..... I love Urchfont and I really wanted to stay with the members of Textile 21 (who have decided to stay on despite the weather) - I would not mind being stuck there but what I am so afraid of is either getting stuck mid way from home or slipping or being involved in some unpleasant car incident - my home is only 10 mins away max!. So I re packed up my stuff and came home. Once home the snowing stopped ! Hence the feeling foolish. What makes it worse is that three times now I have put my stuff back in the car intending to go back to Urchfont and three times I have taken it out of the car as soon as the snow started to fall again!! Why do I have this lack of confidence now?????
So between trips to the car I have spent the day so far sorting out my finances, my daughters finances and cleaning the house - I could have been stitching or drawing with Textile 21!!
What a twit!!
