Another week and ‘normality’ seems to be returning. Kevin and I went out on Sunday and there were lots of people about. Haven’t seen so many for months! The cable cars were running and the pier was very busy. Lots of people walking on the Great Orme and around it on Marine Drive. Our friends, Ian & Ali, popped over on Friday and we went and had coffee & cake at one of the (many) cafes in town. It’s great now that they’re only 40 miles away instead of around 300.
I have had a play with one piece of the slate. I was going to use a white chalk pen but couldn’t find the one I knew I had so used a porcelain brush pen in red instead. I bought a white chalk pen on Friday and, of course, have now found my original one! I need to go through the slate and clean it all up before I do any more. I’ve ordered some white carbon paper to help with transferring text. Here’s my first effort:
On Saturday I finally got around to making my sun hat:
I’ve never made a hat before and, to be quite honest, I don’t think I’ll ever make one again! Still, I’m pleased with it and wore it on Sunday when we went out. It’s fully reversible but this is the way I’ll be wearing it. I’ve been given some fabric from someone who lives locally via someone at church. I think Margaret Wright (glitterandglue) has also had some. Hopefully I shall get a chance to go myself. The best bit of fabric was this:
And there’s enough to make 6 cushion covers. I just need to get some fabric for the backs. There were also a few bits of ribbon. This one took me right back!
Doesn’t that just scream ‘1970s’ at you? For some reason it reminds me of when I was a Brownie. I’m sure I had a dress in the same colours in the 60’s as well. And, my 2nd primary school and my secondary school uniforms were both brown with a brown/orange tie.
Time is going fast, I must skidaddle! I’m hosting a Zoom meeting in 20 minutes. Hwyl fawr am y tro!
