In Grandma’s days Monday was always washing day, so
sticking with tradition the bedding was stripped and on the
line first thing, taking advantage of the hot weather we are having.
After a trip to the Post office I dropped off a frock at friend
Val’s, who I haven’t seen in over a year, then called
in on my buddy Jane and had a cuppa with her. Nearly four
hours after I’d left the house I reappeared to the wandering welder
thinking I’d left home.
After a late lunch I stocked my basket up with books, pencils, more
books, some stitching and headed off into the garden.
These are some pieces I’ve been tinkering with.
Painted bondaweb with yellow emulsion paint then ironed onto plain navy cotton.
Next up I’ve cut out pieces from a print fabric and machine stitched them down.
They are my sample pieces for the textile group I’m with.
Tuesday after my Pilates zoom class I set to work on the next
part of Jo Hill’s Flowers and Grasses course.
This retirement malarkey is full on, she chuckled.
How was there ever time to go to work.
I’ve a new book to start tonight by a new author.
It’s a modern day Romeo & Juliet with the trials of two
people from different religions.
Before that though I’ve got the last of the sewing classes
held locally. I know I’ve managed to make a tote bag and
a fabric basket, but I have to tell you ladies all this pattern
cutting and accuracy is not for me.
I’ll be sticking with my usual make it up as I go along stuff.
Have a lovely creative week
