It is raining. It is raining and raining and raining. And on top of that, raining. For days now. I think it stopped today for about 15 minutes. Then it started to rain. It’s times like this I feel grateful for living on a hill as I watch the water pour down towards the flat. There are floods and slips everywhere and driving is an absolute hazard (especially in a loaned car from the panel beaters that I’m not used to). I have to say one thing about rain, it softens all of the colours into muted versions of themselves, and it brings out that amazing concrete coloured gray that I love so much.
I spent a bit of time today thinking about when I first started this blog, it was pretty much in a weather patch like the one we are currently experiencing. I love watching the rain drops move down the window. I also spent some time today finishing off my apron for my part in the Great Apron Swap 2010, thanks to Red Gingham. My partner Jill lives in the United States, the kids get so excited at the thought of that. Mia has now decided that she is going to catch a plane to see Jill. This is my first ever apron, and I’m really rather pleased at the end result. I can’t show it yet as I want Jill to see it first, but there’s a snippet of the fabric below.
