Listening: to the rain. The forecast was for anything up to 40mm over 4 hours, and it’s doing its best to live up to expectations.
Reading: ‘Masks: the Art of Expression’ edited by John Mack. I’ve been experimenting with making masks – the one above was made for MSED, and I enjoyed the process, and want to make more. I went shopping on insomniac night (always a bad time to go shopping) and ordered the book, from ABE books, for the extortionate sum of £2.80. At that price I thought it would be quite small. It isn’t, and it has good illustrations, which is what I wanted.
Watching: our TV viewing currently is limited to cycling and Scandinavia drama.
Making: apart from masks – and that is mostly sketchbook explorations – I’m still knitting. Last week’s mohair is languishing, waiting for me to find something to weave into it, the subsequent cotton + mohair glove has been washed (not felted, for once) and is drying, and another cotton +something to be decided at a later date glove is underway.
Loving: another quiet weekend – apart from the rain.
Feeling: cold. It is definitely Autumn.
Anticipating: the grands going back to school next week. We had a lovely summer together, but it’s been tiring, so we’re looking forward to having free time in the middle of our grandparenting days, while they’re in school.
