Is summer over already? It's definitely colder and very much windier here today. Still, Ted managed to get a few minutes in the sun before the cloud took over.
There has been progress, although it doesn't feel like it! I've collected the publicity boards from Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary, who we are again supporting throughout Arts Week (and beyond, in my case). They fit perfectly in the space once occupied by my sewing machine. Of course, we have the collecting bucket too! Please give generously.
The kiln is on for one last firing of beads. I shall miss my torch, no more bead making until after arts week now - the space is needed for the things from the other workshop.
Walls painted (to sort of hide the dye splashes), floors cleaned, shelves washed down and ready for filling with lovely glass and jewellery. Still a couple more hours work this evening, sorting as I go and hopefully by the end of tomorrow there'll be real progress. I am sure it didn't take me this long last time!!
A quick check of the Met Office website - thunder storms expected Friday and Saturday! It doesn't predict further ahead than that but I hope the sun shines! We've a new BBQ being delivered Friday, have bought parasols for shade, got the lounger and chair cushions from the loft. Perhaps I should stop thinking we are actually going to have a warm summer this year?
