Crazy mad

This month has whizzed by.  So many things to achieve,
 and so many things getting in the way.

A shed load of paperwork, then getting father in law's 
house up to scratch for renting.  Today I ironed six sets 
of curtains (ready made) in time for the new tenants.
Note, I only do creative ironing so this was a bit
of a challenge, and very boring!  Nice fabric though.
Natural cotton from India.  Thinks, if all else fails it
will work a treat in an indigo vat.  

Then there is the Materials Sale at the Mill on 
Friday.   Yards of fine cotton thread dyed.  Fabric in
the dye pot tomorrow. Time is running out, and I think
 I have just about done my stint on the house to rent. 
As ever there is always the unexpected - Keith's
car refused to start this morning, so now I have
the job of driving him here and there for last
minute needs on the house to rent.

Oh for a simple life.  You wake up in the morning.
Ah, yes I will stitch/dye today.  No hassle or
interruptions.  I am hoping that after this month
things will get easier - ha, ha!  We live in hope.

I have gathered together indigo fabric for my Shop.
More on that next week.  All is in place, apart from
understanding the Paypal thing.   I will add items
to the Shop in February.

Well, it has been a mad/crazy month.  What to do?
Escape to India of course.   Just a short trip this
time.  There is the cattle fair at Baneswara, and
a village known for block printing to check out.

There have been fun times too, like when Will and
Ben came down for a couple of days.  A little cold
but not too much that you can't wrap up against it.
Mr. Ben took his first steps on sand.  The hard sand
on the pavement was interesting, lots of trial
stamping.  Soft sand altogether a different thing.
Then we get to the wet stuff, very interesting!
And we can collect shells and stones, perhaps
throwing some of them into the sea.  Result,
wet feet and cold hands all round.  Fabulous.

Hey, this is good!
