Corn - Wednesday 11 April

The sun came out, and so did the people..was very busy today!I met with the people from the funding organisation and they were very impressed with what we have achieved.I took it as an affirmation that what I have done is right. Lots of people walking in the park called in and most were amazed that the building was actually being used at last. I gather from just the few days I've been there that the site is held in high regard by local residents as it has been underused over the years but stands as a memorial to Sir Joseph Strutt who donated the park to the people of Derby back in early 1800s. historians among you will know that MR. Strutt was the owner and builder of the largest of the textile mills up in Belper Derbyshire, amongst the first ever 'factory's' in the world. I really am in amongst the history of the modern industrial world!

Managed around 4 hours of dotting today...not shown here is the start of work on the sky at last!.

I was wondering...do you dream of dots at night? ;)
And I'd never noticed that your blog template also has plenty of dots!
Dots, dots, dots! (Feeling silly today)
