It is pouring with rain and very cold and our house which doesnt hold the heat well when it is windy is cold.
Consequently my joints are aching.
I have been a good girl and been into town and shopped, staggered home and tidied up, Mason was staying with Sarah so I had a chat to him he is such a sweet child, a shame they have to grow up.
Any way these books arrived in the past two days and I have been having a lovely time reading them, not doing much just reading them but books are forming in my brain and I want to get on with a bit more stamp cutting.
The piece of fabric is one I did using calico and dmuslin painted with gesso and newspaper headlines and then oil stick rubbed on top, I have heat set it but am waiting for the smell to go away before I stitch.
I have also got this far with a challenge to make some pages using this sort of thing as the background and then dressing the girl.
Well I have got this far although having the pieces photocopied locally was not much of a succes so I have cut the A3 in half and done it on my machine, still not madly succesful but at least I have got this far.
I am knitting a small owl, doing a bit of stitching and generally not doing anything terribly constructive, I did manage to make the soup and I think tonight we will have braised lamb shanks, cant believe the price of them, when we killed our sheep they were dog bones!
I am not sure if my sizing is right.
I am to have new glasses! After 5 years these old ones needed an up grade, not much but a bit, I had terrible trouble finding a pair I liked at a price I liked!
Another pair of red ones will soon be on my face. I loved the red ones I have now, I hope I love the new pair as well.
Back to warm up before donning all the outdoor wet weather gear to feed the hens etc.
