These days I try hard to set my mind to do something really worthwhile, but in reality end up in bed with a hottie!!!
I need to decide on the fabrics to use in the next project,
Wayward Transparency with Yvonne
I chose three, and then after they were all measured and cut, took a photo in B&W with my phone. Oh No, not enough contrast between light, medium and dark.Too late to change, a good lesson to learn, take a B&W photo first.
So off to find what I have here, second choice, grey marbled, green and a darker one with blues, greens and almost black.
Maybe sort of OK, but it did not say “YES, pick me!!”
Next is pale mauve, green and again the darker one. and this seems to be all right. Good contrast, and mauve in the green, picks up the pale mauve in the lightest fabric.
However we have some time before the cutting begins, so I can play, set them out all over again and ponder some more.
Our weather is so changeable, warmer days, then rain, AGAIN, and some wind. Down south lambing is going well, one brave ewe had FOUR baby lambs. They were all fostered out to be bottle fed by another family, one was very tiny, I hope he made the grade and survived. No huge late season snow falls this year so far, the farmers will be elated to avoid that sleet and snow with freezing wind.
For years, Hugh has said if we see a logging truck going past,” I just would like one of those logs to fall off at our place”. Well, last week a local man had a whole truck load for sale, I sent a txt, he replied, and bingo, they arrived. The huge truck reversed up to this spot, and even after some dry days the huge wheels sunk into the grass, look carefully and you can see the indentation. This was late afternoon, and not the best light for photos.
We think there are 50!!!!!So all Hugh’s dreams came true. No stumps to clean out, no branches to trim, no scruffy stuff to burn, just cut into rounds and split. Thanks Ross, you will be very popular everywhere you go.
Hugh’s shoulder fracture is healing perfectly, no separation or displacement, he is driving again. My muscle sprain is still very painful, slightly improving, how we take good health and ability to do everything we want to, for granted.
I am slightly better and each day hope to be able to do a bit more, Roller cutting is out for now, but fabric can be patted, laid out and arranged again and again.
Thank you all so much for your caring comments, enquiries, and emails. I so appreciate every one, and if I have not replied to you in person, pain medication and all else dims the mind!!! At least that is what I believe.
