Almost forgotten about...

...but it was probably for the best as now I am very tempted to open it up and see what (if anything) has been occuring in the jar for nearly two months!
Since we moved it had taken a very sunny position on the patio amongst some pots and has had a variety of weathers to contend with - a very sunny patio has at times been wet and gloomy, and I do believe we had frost at the beginning of May too. I'm hoping these four seasons in two months have produced some interesting marks on the piece of silk inside!

Maybe I will open it before the weekend is out.....

For those of you who have never seen this stuffed jar before you can find previous blogs here and here about the piece of silks journey so far.

Should I open it yet?!?.....

Sunset Boulevard

I found this image whilst rummaging through my backlog of photos....
It was taken from the flat we've just left behind a couple months ago.
The sky is very pretty...can't say that for the caravan!

I don't know where time has gone over the past few weeks since we moved but we have now been here for nearly a month! Can you believe it.

The house itself is still very much upside down, things are moving a lot slower since I went back to work (boo) but I have a couple of long weekends over the next couple of weeks (yay!) so hopefully be able to give the decorating a good push forward and empty more boxes. We did finally find the camera battery charger - it's just my other half now has it on him when I finally get chance to sit down here at the comp! I have a few pics to share about the joys of decorating and will show you all soon.

Although I am pretty busy I am desperately missing dyeing and experimenting! I have also booked a stall at a local country show in the craft tent in August so really need to start preparing for it now. It will be my first stall and I'm very excited. I would have loved to have committed to a few more over the next few months but I decided I am best not committing to too many at once and especially when I've just moved and got a house to straighten up and furnish! But it will be a good taster at stall life and hopefully be successful with interest too.

I've been editing a few photo's here and there too, below are the latest which will hopefully be listed in a shop over the next couple of days.....

Unfound Items....

Number 1) Camera Battery Charger.
Yes, it seems moving has caught up with us as we are now starting to wonder where certain (quite important) items have been packed and buried!
I have taken some pictures on the digi camera and now when I come to upload them the battery fails and I am stuck wondering which box the darn charger is in!
I suppose it should be the least of my worries at half past ten on a Sunday night while sat here with wet hair, a bed that is to be stripped and remade, and also still need to find some clothes to wear for work tomorrow.
The house has been upside down today. It was sanding day. Very messy. Very dusty. And very very hard to clean up! I was hoping to share some pictures of just how messy it was. and that I only finished cleaning it up at half eight, but they shall have to wait until the charger reappears as for now I really should dry my hair...

Night all, and happy week to you all x

p.s. I did manage to add a couple of new products on line over the weekend though...
