We have been working in a creative silence all day in TheBigForest hut. The windows and doors wide open to catch what little breeze stirs in the stormy heat. Plenty of tea to keep the ideas flowing.
Playing in a loop in my head has been Jon Hopkins and King Creosote. Aurora Boring Alias – poetry set to reflective music. Soundcloud calls the genre Folkmospherica. I can see why but it makes me recoil slightly. Bubble a favourite track with the most amazing animation on YouTube was the other soundtrack to my day played by the DJ in my mind.
And by five o’clock we had almost completed two more of our commission projects – well the tough bit, the pattern and a fabric toile to make sure everything is well before we cut expensive woolfelt.
Finally we cooked chicken, sundried tomatoes and olives, garlic bread, a big salad and drank ice-cold beer.
A satisfying day and fingers crossed for two more so by Thursday we are bouncy bright with boxes of completed goods by our side.
