Today started out blah and thankfully has improved. I got up late as I worked til midnight. My back is still giving me grief and that is what drove me out of bed. A hot pack, large amounts of coffee and crumpets helped that. the sun is shining here today and I sat in my family room in the sun for a while. Neighbor across the road came knocking at the horrendous hour of 9.30 and caught me still in my P.J's and dressing gown. He came to tell me that the house next to him is being torn down and there are 3 smaller houses being built there. He wanted to assure me that they would be good houses like his. which is a lovely new brick house. As ours is an older fibro one I wonder if he thinks ours is not so good. Too bad we like it. Anyway so now we will have 8 houses where there where a few years ago 3.
Oh well. I have washed some calico and hung it on the line to dry. I have a gold work class on Friday with Alison Cole which will be wonderful. I have to get the frames ready for the work. She suggested using a 10" hoop so we could chop and change without too much effort but I have 4 square frames so I will just use them. I prefer the square frames any way. I then decided to console myself in regards to the influx of neighbors and made my favourite dessert. Creamed rice and thickened up some of the plums and berries I bottles last summer to go with it. Comfort food indeed.
But the best part of the day was finding an email from Glenys Mann regarding Fibre Forum. I got my first choice workshop at Fibre Forum next year. I don't know if I was just lucky or if the note on the Catherine O'Leary workshop about making prefelts put people off. I know that my friend who goes too was put off by the prefelt thing. However in the notes regarding what to take there is no mention of prefelting. I am really looking forward to this. If you want too take a look here is the link
