It’s raining…. it’s pouring…..

The weather forecast for today is showers. Light here, but heavier further north. Watching the broadcast this morning I could see a cloud that hung heavily over the Chilterns.

The area around the Chilterns is beautiful, and that’s where I’m heading later today – to teach at Missenden Abbey. I’ve seen some beautiful weather at Missenden – glorious sunshine, beautiful views too, of course, however, each time I have had to unload my teaching ‘stuff’ from the car I have had to do it in pouring rain! It would appear that this weekend will be no exception. So, while you are basking in sunshine elsewhere, please spare me a thought!

However hard the rain falls, though, the sun will be shining in the class as we colour our fabrics with various shades of yellow – and other colours too. I’m really excited as I love teaching dyeing. We will definitely be having fun, but also learning something too. That’s the thing about dyeing….. it’s a continual learning process for everyone. Here’s a sneak preview of something they will see.

This won’t mean a lot – and they aren’t the colours we will be dyeing – but this sequence illustrates a very useful point. It just represents one of the aspects of the course. With permission I will show you some photographs after the weekend.

It’s true to say, however, that every cloud has a silver lining. This weekend will be no different! I have just discovered that Eurovision is being broadcast tomorrow. I won’t have to make an excuse to avoid it! Hooray!

Colour is my business and I using a variety of materials. I enjoy enabling other creatives to enjoy their art. Crochet is one of my current means of expression. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
