Tales of the Unexpected

One of our lady Shedders wrote recently that no two days were the same. Very true. Here are some unexpected happenings starting with Staithes.

Ian brought in a picture a friend had done of Ian’s dog (that recently died). It was wood burning on veneer then coloured. Beautiful work that Ian is now attempting to copy.

Another unexpected happening was that lining boards ordered from the builders’ merchants at 7.30am actually arrived at 9.15am before we arrived (last time it was 1pm). That allowed Malcolm, Graham and Brian to start lining the walls of the wooden shed with polythene sheeting, insulation and the boards. Very satisfying to feel progress and to use an electric staple

Ian trying the same technique.. A burning ambition.

All tidied away. Maggie and Elaine providing scale.
