My great-nan gave me a lovely tablecloth for my 21st. It’s a pretty crocheted number in an unfortunate shade of brown.
I’m not really a brown person, so I figured I’d dye it a pretty shade of mulberry.
Unfortunately somehow during the lifting, twisting, rinsing, and hanging out to dry process I damaged my old lady shoulder.
After two weeks of physio I’m still on light duties which means no housework! (Woo!)
But also no using a computer or crafting.
And! To make things worse the tablecloth didn’t take the dye so if I want it mulberry I need to do the whole thing again.
I did manage to dye some yarn in the colour I wanted so that’s something.
Wouldn’t that tablecloth look pretty in that colour??
So there’s been no crafting for a while.
But it was recently Australia Day which I spent in the company of good friends, good food, a misting jet, and fireworks from the deck. And past-Bek even did some of the dishes. Usually past-Bek isn’t quite so considerate.
