Corn 17 - Exhibitions end

The week came to an end with a flurry of visitors. Today I have probably had in excess of 500 people through the exhibition.Some were actually prepared to buy!The result was that we have managed to break even on the costs plus a little more!I was so worried that we would make a loss that I'm contemplating doing a few cartwheels later!So I'll write the next post from my hospital bed no doubt! I was greatly honoured to have an old friend Alison visit with her husband Mark and two children Freya and Josh. Making the journey down from York it was wonderful to see AL again.I was also visited by many other friends,Allan,Sheridan Honor,Brigid and others made what was an exhausting day very special.
I do however need to say a very special thank you to Kath (pictured here with me) who has given heaps of her own time to help and support me with this and past exhibitions. I'm sure you don't really know Kath the extent of what it means to have such a fantastic,warm,gorgeous,giving,sharing and friendly individual there with me. I know you'll hate this photograph (and I must admit it doesn't do you justice)..but I just wanted all my friends out there in BlogLand to know you were there!
