The Week Gone By...
It's been a busy week - Sunday I got out the Dremel and drilled some holes in all the scallop shells I have been accumulating. Stacie and I like to eat scallops! I wanted a length of shell bunting in my new work room, so after drilling them, I just strung them up on some hairy twine. By the way, drilling scallops absolutely stinks!
We've had a fair bit of this throughout the week. This was Tuesday, when it settled but only stayed until lunchtime.
Some of us were happier about it than others!
The new work room has been put to good use. Not only is it fantastic to have everything I need to hand, it's also the warmest room in the house! I just love that I can leave things out, mid-project, and come back to work on them the next day without losing my train of thought. It's been a week of sewing ridiculously small things for a new animation.
Being able to work on the paid jobs throughout the day leaves me free to knit my own stuff in the evenings if I want to. I knitted this super soft cowl in two days - it's gorgeous and for sale in my Etsy shop now.
We've also had a lot of noise from the builders next door - it's been nearly a year with no let up. If you see in the papers a story about some woman beating the operator of an angle grinder round the head with a baseball bat, it might well be me...
