And instead of being a good housewife/mummy..... (yeah right!!!!) I played around with some Koolaid and some wool.... Instead of my usual dunking and hoping, like I usually do, I applied the dye with a medicine syringe, so the areas of colour are nearly all the same size. The colours have come out really strong.
The first of 6!!! I have a trade order for a website called WoweeNappies and I am really excited about it!!! My second trade order within a year of starting up.......I can't quite believe it. Its mad really, as I don't do any advertising, I only have a blog, no website or anything yet! My good friends at Puddlepants have been fantastic at being my "shop window".....and long may it continue :o) A big thankyou to Gemma for being an amazing koolaid dyeing person....and also to Sara for helping me sort out the pants pattern, I bounced all my ideas off her. Thank goodness for good friends, who like to share their fantastic talents with others. I can only *hope* I am as helpful in return!!!
...........but hopefully not for long. The insurance company have been FAB...they sent a loss assessor round as soon as they could, and an electrician and dryer people.... The loss assessor was great.....I am to have a newly decorated kitchen, units, worktops, lights floor....the works :) Plus some new white goods, because the water/moisture could have got inside and damaged them... We also have two industrial blowers...one in the kitchen and one upstairs for the bathroom, and a dehumidifier here in the kitchen. The dryer people will be coming back next week to do all their moisture tests again, and if we are dry we can go ahead with the rebuilding..if not they will have to rip all the plaster off the affected areas and dry it all out that way. I am really hoping that won't have to happen....please keep everything crossed for me!!!
Came back from a lovely weekend away, camping......to find my house in a right state :( The pipe to the hot tap in the bathroom had leaked (failed washer) and it came through the kitchen ceiling and flooded my kitchen/diner........
