Anyway here are some pictures from the day.
He made an excellent job of the roof, and it's completely dry now if somewhat cooler, as the old wood and mortar between the wood and the slates, has been replace with battens and breathable membrane so there's very little insulation left up there between us and the elements, and the bedrooms are chillier. However, when all the loft has been cleared of a lot of the aforementioned 'stuff' that fell into it , we can put down some layers of insulation and that should make a difference.
So...watch this space.
So we had a farewell photo of Lovell and Michael but we'll be seeing them again in January!
I've been working like a maniac sewing and selling and doing workshops to help to pay towards the roof works and I'm pleased to say I've been selling well.
I've made birds
and lots of other things.
I've been in 'Felt Matters' magazine,
very exciting, and I've been asked to write for another magazine.
I did another two day workshop of my own and it was equally good fun as the last one, with more super work from students.
We had a good laugh.
I've had a lovely Christmas with my family at home and too much food.
I've been accepted for Wonderwool Wales, and I'm about to apply for Woolfest once again.
I have a new two day workshop in the offing, 26th and 27th January in Lancashire, still some places left, as well as some work on a fossil theme to accompany a special exhibition.
So, plenty to look forward to in 2017.
But I'll let you into a little secret, I'm feeling rather down. That black dog. Not really a secret, I've mentioned it before. Christmas can make it worse or better. It seems to like to alternate and this year it definitely worse.
(I hope thats not a truth too far.)
So roll on 'normality'.
Only 8 weeks to Ballyvaughan.
