Yes, we finally found a buyer for the old house and we can finally move on and get a few things sorted. Of course, there was a last minute spanner in the works in the form of a building requisition when a council search was performed. We managed to add some stuff to improve the stability of a 25-year old shed and get a building inspector to approve our work; now we are waiting for the paperwork for the all-clear to come through from council….waiting……waiting……waiting…..
My experiences with Samson (aka Muscles) have been continuing to be fantastic, he is the most willing and kind horse and even his “no I don’t want you to catch me” has pretty much disappeared. I am so happy I got him.
On the craft front I have been experimenting a bit with new designs for my four-legged ceatures, first attempt here:
Instead of making the head, neck, body and legs in separate pieces and then sewing together, here I have made the head and neck in one piece and the body and four legs in another. A lot less sewing and a cleaner more streamlined look. It still needs a bit of refining, but I am fairly happy with the outcome so far.
I also had the opportunity to test a pattern for Airali Designs:
The pattern is available on Airali Designs Etsy page.
And, just to proof that you can do stupid things even when you generally know what you’re doing: I managed to delete my /var/ folder instead of /var/log/ 😦 Next step: take another uptodate backup, reinstall Ubuntu and promise myself to create a bootable version of my OS with all the current settings for next time (but , of course, there won’t be a next time, will there?)
