Good morning everyone, I’m still here, albeit still not firing on all cylinders
and suffering with what looks like long covid.
Even though I’m on the mend, I’m learning that the fatigue can hit at any time
along with bouts of joint pains. So I just take each day as it comes. I’m not used to having
to put the brakes on but heyho it’ll pass.
On Friday I had a walk around the local reservoir, we live in a beautiful part of Lancashire
and are lucky enough to have lots of moorland and Healey Dell nature reserve within
minutes of home.
Something we have always been short of in the area is somewhere to meet up with folk for a
coffee or a bit of lunch.
Well not now as two fabulous local lads have opened a trendy coffee shop
which we tried out after our walk.
We loved it, so much so that I’ve been again with my friend for lunch.
I think they will be a great success as you’re sure of a friendly welcome, great food
and a relaxed environment. Good on em I say for having the confidence to invest in
the local area.
Back home and I have managed a bit of craft work at my desk.
This week I’m joining in a series of short daily textile workshops with Textileartist.org
Well when I say I'm joining in that’s the theory. I had to go and lie down after the first
workshop but at least I put in an appearance.
Day one was mark making on fabric with acrylic paints and using things like twigs, credit cards, brushes,
sticks, in fact anything that you could make marks with.
Day two was Deconstruct to Reconstruct
Cutting up the painted fabrics to make new pieces.
Stick with me to see where it goes next.
Until then enjoy your week and stay well.
