So banners were hung, food organized to be distributed to the hungry and a march with music and dancing through Old Delhi...he arrived home rather tired :)
French dreams abound- this just turned up in the mail....love this fabric...we are working on designing blocks to print some of our own Indian inspired fabric along these lines. Can't you see Baba the camel and Pushkar immortalised on cloth?
We have just got a whole stash of fabric back from Bagru and lots of new blocks - here is a photo album
Bit of a glitch this week with the kids we have in school...maybe we were just being over ambitious thinking with our encouragement we could make a big difference. They started and the first month both turned up every day, we have maintained regular contact with the teacher who ahs been great giving extra lessons to help catch them up because they are so far behind...but last month they miss more days than they go. The teacher has rung Mum and all types of vague stories...we have tried to touch base and again vague stories and we can never meet up.
Disappointing. we have put it out there and school has as well attendance is necessary but much more of this and they are finished with us.
We work really hard to earn our money, we are both committed to using some of it to help our community and will make sure we do it where it does the most good. This isn't it.
it is the same attitude we have with our stitching business- we want it fair and fun for all...we are happy to train people, we are happy to work hard to provide continuous work but if it ain't fun, we have to grumble too much for that to happen - we are happy for people to find other work options...luckily we are surrounded by people who like our attitude.
Our old car is slowly, slowly falling to pieces- we love this car. we bought it together 9 years ago and it has taken us all over the country but retirement is near. I have been suggesting perhaps she could house a mobile library.
Books have always been my solace and with information you can learn anytime. There are no libraries here, no where near enough books for kids to enjoy....we're trying to make a small difference in our community....just finding our path.
It is so hot today my mind is not working....I think I am going to go home, put the AC on and read a book...be lazy until I start to get itchy to DO something...might be a while.
