Forgot …

… how many days it has been raining here in Amberley, NZ. Suffice it to say that there have been a goodly number, as evidenced by the flooding that is happening around us.

The main road to Christchurch is under water and homes are being evacuted in North Canterbury, near here. There must be some back roads open as the traffic past the house has not been slowed very much.

Our papermaking has been stymied somewhat. Hoping for a break today so we can pull some huge sheets. Have been filling the ‘pond’ with water diverted from the house downspout. Check out the ‘system’!

In the meantime, Mark has been working on critters and i have made paper flowers and leaves formfuture paintings. Just hoping they dry sometime this year!

  1. Ha, ha, ha, ha!!! Mark is certainly the “Rube Goldberg” of the papermaking world!! It reminds me of my automatic lye maker of a few years back using the fence of the garden with guttering attached to hold the wood ashes – and buckets stacked to filter the ash water through straw to form the lye for cooking fibre!! Sweet! Love ‘ya, Mimi ♥
