Exhibition night: 3 of 6






 
 
And here we are on the night of the final July show. How quickly these summer months seem to pass us by. Everyone on the island prepares for months for this, our busiest of times, and it's suddenly upon us and gone before we know it.
 
Here's me with one of our exhibiting artists, Rosemary Trestini, and the support team shows Tash Lawson stepping into the breech as Julie was otherwise engaged. We had an incredibly busy evening where the girls and I were very pleased that we didn't actually run out of wine, thanks to the pub manager Rob Leatherbarrow who sent us extra supplies at one stage. Much as it was a hectic evening it was great fun, sales were good and some of the crowd spilled out onto the road, drinks in hand, to enjoy the last of the evening sun.
 
One of the highlights of my evening was when a London fashion designer who was holidaying on the island remarked on what an amazing outfit I had on. She could hardly believe it when I told her it was from Tesco. I knew the moment I saw this all-in-one that it looked like a top of the range piece. I never want to pass these things off as something more than they are, and I'm so chuffed that I've not had to spend a fortune, but can still look good. I bought the necklace especially to go with this - it's a fossilised shark tooth encrusted with rose gold Swarovski crystals. Rather fab, eh?
