x-mas day

pumping station's pumping

water's rising

the dikes protect us

boundaries are disappearing


new pieces are emerging

today I've finished (almost: still have to make a new plinth) installing a 'new' dishwasher in our kitchen, accompanied by a lot of grumbling on my part, all the kitchen units were handbuilt by us and therefore nothing is straight(forward), and because I was busy anyway I thought I might as well fix the many loose wires, which involved drilling through the walls and a lot of thinking, planning.....and then with all the rain the verandah-roof started leaking from countless holes (it'll have to be replaced this spring) and so I decided to tack plastic sheeting to keep the water out, the to-do list is becoming shorter, in betwixt all this I am enjoying the holidays. Fortunately I'm not cooking this evening.

My, you have been busy! I am always in awe of the home repairs etc, that you tackle :)
I really love these new pieces you've been doing lately. Dare I say - a series of a sort? They look so related.
May your week be full of goodness as you roll into the new year.

I think of them as a series, the oblong bits of background-velvet fabric are swatches that came from Mia, it's good way for me to get back into 'production'
May your week be full of goodness too, as I hope 2013 will be as well for you and your loved ones.
