Hello lovely people - dashing by - tis Friday time for
Well it is still scorchio here in the UK despite the threat of thunderstorms and rain although we've had the odd rumble of thunder and a brief downpour this morning it really is just unpleasantly warm. I can't wait for a cool Autumn morning again and we've got August to do before that happens.
Anyway I digress, with the weather as warm as it is at the moment we really don't really fancy doing an awful lot. Friday evening we popped to Ikea for a wander, the air con was lovely if I'm honest, we also grabbed what I thought was tea but according to said 17 year old it was in his word 'light snack'.
I had had a lovely afternoon gelli plating and chatting to said 17 year old's girlfriend, we had great fun putting the world to rights.
Saturday was just too hot, so we ended up making flowers for the installation at work, in answer to the question Lisca asked the other week, my workplace is a charity that does creative art courses as well as owning two narrowboats - hence the boat statement, I literally work in the office space in what was originally a boat house.
On Saturday I wanted to do a giant origami flower, which literally took hours, but was very pleased with the effect afterwards.
We also did some smaller ones on sticks, the little detail in the middle really finishes them off. This is for an art installation that we will be showcasing at the end of August we need in excess of a thousand flowers to make it work so it is all hands on deck for the flowers.
Hubby popped out to grab a few things from the supermarket and when he came back I'd made some giant tissue flowers. I really loved making these.
Said 17 year old went to his girlfriends on Sunday and we just chilled out.
On Monday night we attended a pottery class including said 17 year old's girlfriend and learnt how to make a coil pot. I think my pottery career is officially over but we had a giggle for a couple of hours which is always lovely. The blue flower style one at the top is mine and the yellow one below said 17 year old's girlfriend.
Said 17 year old made this pot
and hubby made this one complete with the cutest snake in the bottom
The rest of the week has been mighty busy with work, but great fun at the same time.
I had a positive meeting with my diploma tutor on Wednesday and I'm nearing the end of the course, hopefully three more meetings and I will be done.
And that my lovely people really is about all for this week, it has been far too hot to move!
I hope you've had a fabulous week, if you fancy joining in pop a post together, pop back and link up and we can come and visit.
