wallpreparationSoon my bench will be able to move back to it’s spot under the window! Thanks to the wonderful handyman and his offsider on Halloween the problem is solved, we had a lot of rain last week and the walls are drier than they have ever been in the 6 years we have lived here, doing the happy dance we may well be here for a good while yet!
Yesterday arvo I propped up the ceiling with a piece of bamboo cut to fit in behind the curtain rail and prepared the walls and the hole in the ceiling by scraping back all the loose plaster & rotted paint, sealed it all with watered down Bondcrete (PVA), will let it set for a few days then give it another coat and think about how to make some spider web lace with string to strengthen the edges….

new-light-and-new-chair& a friend just gave me his old desk chair which is exactly like the one I bought 2nd hand 25 years ago which had no padding left on it anywhere &  this one even has wheels that work. Let the good times roll!

leaking-wall-4I was just thinking the Hope curtain needed to be washed and that all the accumulated bits and pieces on the bench needed a good clean and dust… well be careful what you wish for, we’ve had torrential rain for days and the studio wall reached saturation point this morning
leaking-wallthis only happens when the rain comes from the North a couple of times a year & hopefully it will ease up soon!
the buckets are catching  most of the drips and everything is sorted, all the brushes are in the brush jars, the pencils are in the pencil jars, the stray beads are back in their tins and all the feathers and bits and pieces are clean!
This is what it looked like a few weeks ago
postcard beginnings
the rain seems to be easing now so once things dry out a bit more I’ll get back to the fishnet lace edge on the circle of the seasons scarf
