After all the excitement of my Disintegration work, I've about forgotten everything else. I must say I have loved doing The Woven (see last post) and now I want to weave lots more things for outside. Jim had better not stand still too long, especially with his arms outstretched! lol.
Here is a photo of the man himself sitting in the garden a couple of days ago, with The Woven behind him.
We actually had a bit of sun for an hour or two. Not like today, when it's rained almost all day long.
I received some lovely post from Lisa, one of our group of 10 ATC makers (Artist Trading Cards). I had spotted an ATC on her blog that I liked so we did a swap. Here is the lovely owl eyeing up his dinner:Isn't he cute? Lynn also sent me a 'good luck' card. We certainly need it at the moment!
The colours are so bright and intense. Love it. Thank you so much Lynn. We are on the letter 'L' through the alphabet and this is the 'L' I sent to Lisa: Ah, I can't find a photo of it so I'll have to get Lisa to post it on the ABC around the world site. What a fool am I.
Lisa also wrote on some gorgeous notepaper. That might be used in another ATC!!
It's all botanical and beautiful.
Buster has become very clingy lately. He used to roam the countryside for most of the day, now he won't leave us alone! The only time he goes off is at teatime when he hears the children down the road and goes off to see Millie. There was a brief break in the rain so I walked him down to the lake. The break in the rain did not last and we both got soaked! Still, it was a good walk and I'm sure it did us both good. I brought back some wild flowers for our table to cheer us both up:
Buster pesters the life out of the cats, but sometimes he and Sandy get on OK, until Buster gets a bit rough. I made this montage of some kitchen confrontation between them tonight:
Then, as Buster walked away, Sandy 'batted' him with his paw! He's a cheeky thing at times.
Jim has been slowly moving some things from the old barn which is going to be demolished, up to the top barn, which is now all clean and tidy. It's going to be a slow job.
Hopefully the builders will finish our steps down into the extension tomorrow and the plumber is coming some time this week too. We really are getting there..... slowly.
Just a quick catch up tonight. I hope everyone's had a good weekend. We have done a lot of slobbing about and watching cricket. Come on England....
