Nothing much happening around here. It's a perfect Devonport summer day, which means the temperature wont get above about 22 celcius. Nice.
Much to my surprise, the factory owner decided to close the place down for the Christmas/New Year break, which means I have a holiday of about 11 days. Wow. This gives me time to finish my current project.
I'm making a mat out of plaited and coiled fabric. Started out using strips of my old clothing and then remembered that I work in a clothing factory where there are many metres of off cuts from stuff we make. There's one company that requires stuff made from 100% merino knit. So now I'm using that to make the mat. The only difficulty is that every time I start working on it, it ends up covered in cats. Here's Cilla Black making herself comfortable.
The cat hasn't so much 'sat' on the mat as sprawled all over it. Apparently cats are fond of wool. Fortunately Dusty Springfield isn't quite so enamoured of the mat so I do sometimes get some work done.
Anyway, I'm spending my time gardening, cat caring and mat making. How lovely and relaxing.
