Hello My Little Sun Rays
Its been a busy weekend, mainly spent with my friends and visiting Alex.
And I’ve also had to recover from a rather arduous and emotionally charged three-day Studio3 course. A course especially designed for training carers in how do deal with”challenging behaviours”.. I am in total awe of all the professionals involved in delivering the training and indeed with the people who have chosen to enter into the profession! What an amazing bunch of people… and what an amazing organisation whose ethos is to exercise empathy, respect and care in helping people with ” autism & learning difficulties” overcome their anxieties. Hopefully what I’ve learned will help me deal with Alex better when he comes back home.
But back to hooky madness instead.. I chose to make some friendship bracelets for Alex’s mates at the unit.. just basic cotton, simple and plain .. brown for boys and pink for girls. What do you think?
The other focus I’ve had is in getting some work done on my Lidl’s luxury cotton ripple bed runner for Lenna. It’s a beautiful project and so relaxing to do after a long day of dealing with paperwork, admin, meetings and visits to Alex… that pretty much sums up my typical day now.
I’d say I’m just over half way through the project now. I’m so pleased with my colour combination and beautiful straight edges.. thanks to Mikey Smail’s Video
But… how many of you have worked with stripes and sit for ages trying to arrange a sequence of colours?? Frustrating isn’t it …. SO I thought I’d share with you a little “gizmo” that I discovered here on the internet that will captivate you for hours… the stripe generator for your multi-coloured projects. All you have to do is tell it which colours you are going to use and it displays every conceivable combination available to you!!! Fanbloomingtastic!! You must have a go.
Here is the link for you guys to play with… http://www.biscuitsandjam.com/stripe_maker.php
And finally I want to wish you a wonderful continuation to the week and thank you again for all your support during this rather difficult time… if you could drive away the rain aswell that would be awesome too!
