Spring has officially arrived here in Shetland.
I was having a rootle around in the garden and came upon these little gems of loveliness.
I have been a bit of a project grasshopper today.
I started to paint the pantry window but had to stop as the damp proofing paint wouldn't stick to the damp !
Then I started to clear the drive which is totally over grown with grass and brambles. After clearing about a meter I went in as I was cold and my back was sore, but even the longest journey has to start with a single step.
This afternoon I started to wash red fabric for a project I have in mind. I rinsed and rinsed and added salt and rinsed and rinsed a whole heap more, but the blessed stuff was still running with liquid that had the appearance of cranberry juice. Finally I gave up and whapped it in the washing machine with a cup of salt.
Does any one have any suggestions on how to stop fabric from running ?
I'm keeping up with most of my new years resolutions .... well most of them any way.
