Its Monday …

October 26, 2015

I had a horrible weekend and then, I didn’t. Yes, I wandered about in drugged up state and threw up at regular intervals but I  managed attend a fundraising event for refugees at the Rising Sun Art Centre where I enjoyed some Indian tea.  You will understand my preference is Chinese, so we had some friendly banter about  the anti inflammatory qualities of tea, over  some nice cake, not necessarily so healthy but good for the mood.  The visit to the Rising Sun allowed me time to measure the Printing (redundant bookbinding) press that we are hoping to have printing for our next open day. It is in working order but needs some MDF blocks for a reason not entirely clear to me but important; so I was able to get this on Sunday.

Meanwhile, I have some Lily of the Valley bulbs  that needs a new home, so after having bought some rotted compost, that task was enjoyed on Sunday morning.  None of this was documented in my usual fashion, sadly due to my state of malady. 

While I was unable to enjoy my art making so much as usual although I did buy a couple of new tools and in between episodes I was able to dry-point a hat and some holly.

    I love your dry points Helen, because I know how much skill they take. I am doing a compulsory subject on jewellery making as an intensive in the summer. This will be most challenging since I have a fear of using tools:)

      I can understand this caution my late dad was a man of tools … while I try my best I imagine is watching over me … and fear his disapproval … although I have no reason for this fear. He was a kind gentle man … Let me know how this new venture works out … with love xx
