the rain came, the sun came back
Yes - it rained a lot yesterday - really lovely - lots of happy chatty birds everywhere. Today the sun came back out but do hope the rain comes back. I used some deColourant on some fabric I 'stole' from Dyed and Gone to Heaven yesterday - works well Lisa. Here it is drying in the sun. I bought some sponge alphabet stamps which arrived today so I tried them out. I like the fact that the image is incomplete. For the bottom two I used deColourant Plus - red and metallic silver and then I washed the sponges and thought I would just try the deColourant - you can see one of the 'T's has run a bit - this is water. I did wave my heat gun over it but then popped it out in the sun. I haven't washed it yet - once you do that the colour works in as a dye would and the handle of the fabric stays the same.
Fulvia - someone grafitted truffa on our front post in red so I decided to use it as part of my Writing on Walls theme. According to my dictionary it means hoax or swindle - do you have a better meaning for me?
Three Sad Old Blokes are not having such a good series at Torbay this round, defending their winning title from 2010. I am pretty sure this is them. There are over 100 boats so it would be a great spectator place to be. for those who have asked, Grant didn't win the 2011 WA male sailor of the year - it was won by a couple of Tornado sailors who came 24th or similar in their worlds - not quite the same as a 1st but never mind - sailing isn't about winning awards in WA - it's about sailing itself, the competition, the people and all of that.
Tonight we are off to the ACO concert - we missed the last one because we were away so looking forward to it.
