After three floods and three moves Mum is now in her retirement apartment. She has even had time for cake with the Queen and a Jubilee party in the residents lounge.
Life hasn’t calmed down yet though as we’ve now got her old house to prepare for sale and I’m still ploughing my way through paperwork and hours on the phone trying to get through to services and authorities. I don’t know how folk can say things are better now. It’s a shame I’m not getting paid to do this lot as I’d be coining it in. Oh yes and I’m also still dealing with the flood compensation paperwork.
So still no crafting yet. However, my sister came home for the weekend and we managed an afternoon treat at a local art gallery.
The room of curiosities
PAULA CHAMBERS EXHIBITION
Update on crafting since I started this post. My textile group had a little online workshop on the Cyanotype process.
If you don’t know what it is, it’s a dyeing technique using chemicals and the sun.
Looks lovely …… only thing is, it should be blue and not disappear
when rinsed through.
Wouldn’t you know I had been sent the wrong chemical mix. Poor Kim who
I bought it off was mortified. Not to worry said I, there’s worse things happen.
So hopefully I’ll post the real thing next week heehee.
Take care and have a good week
