Stringer and I used to like to be able to tell each other:
and this stood for
Haven’t you heard ? – it’s all been changed !!!
It was a favourite exchange when we were away on location together, as script pages in varying colours were being issued each evening, together with revised shooting schedules. Oh, we were an intolerant pair .. [grin]
Today I utter this unpronounceable “acronym” with regard to my temperature blanket. And when I say “all”, you’d better believe it.
- It’s not going to be a blanket; and I think it’s going to be a kind of modern art wall hanging, once mounted
- It’s being crocheted in sc*; and I’m happy to say that it looks wonderfully even and pretty damned impressive she said ever so modestly
- It no longer begins on 1st July but on 1st June: this is so that I can make four groups of the three months of each season (that the BoM agrees really should start on the 1st of the relevant month, not the 21st, Downunder). I’m thinking something of this nature:
So anyone who has the faintest memory of my last posting on this topic will understand that I had to frog everything I’d done – the whole of July – and start again. Strangely enough, that kind of thing doesn’t worry me !
There you go: Winter in Geelong consisted of four colours – with a fifth appearing just the once, when our lowest minimum fell below zero ! (see if you can pick it) – and they are, from coldest to least cold, Delphinium, Cobalt, Periwinkle and Alaska Sky .. a sort of lilac, dark blue, blue and pale blue.
If you look at it sideways –
you get an idea of how the four seasons might look, placed as my ‘sketch’ above.
Oh yes: I begin with plain white, and use it also to separate the months.
Any comments ?
