When I awoke this morning I thought I need to change my life around. I've been divorced for 5 years now, I kept myself to myself and I guess I've felt alone during this time (he left me). The kids are great as they call my house home even though neither are here much, as they have both grown up. I have become a bit of a recluse, frightened of crowds and definitely scared of going places alone. So today I took my first step to get over this. At my age I have to do something - I don't want to end up stuck at home, old and miserable. This may sound daft but I have wanted to go to the cinema for ages and usually had to wait for my daughter to be home - by then I would have missed the film I wanted to see. So today I decided to go to the cinema alone! I have wanted to see Enchanted since I saw a preview - Patrick Dempsey is to die for!!! (check out this link!!) (drool drool). This was such a great experience - I loved the film - it is such great fun and I felt fine in myself so I stayed at the cinema and watched The Golden Compass too!!!!!
When I got home I decided to do some art work - mostly sorting out the homework really!! Here are photos of yesterday's rust dyed fabrics:
The one below shows the can impressions rather well - you can see the circle base and the edge as well as the stripes.
Even the man made lace has come out stripey!
The two below are close ups of the one above - it is rather long, muslin (cheesecloth) and has lovely colour graduations - pale at the top and dark at the bottom. I just love it.
