The rain, high winds and floods have been such a feature of this winter that I wanted to record them. I started this page a few weeks ago with a couple of montages of high water taken over the last 2 months. I couldn't do the journalling though until I was confident the saga was finished.
The umbrella print paper from the Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection was my starting point. I only had the 6x6 pad so I used 4 other papers from the same collection and made a patchwork design. It is based on a very old Glitter Girl episode which I happened to be browsing.
Inspired by the patchwork I decided to stitch a border round each piece. I am still very much a novice with my sewing machine. Suffice it to say, the placement of my embellishments was dictated by the most wonky stitching!
The title draws attention to the fact that I taught my students this phrase after we had so many conversations about 'big weather' and 'bad rain'. I also pointed out that the one weather expression
lots of foreigners think they know- 'It's raining cats and dogs' is never actually used. Correct me if I'm wrong but I have never heard a British adult say it seriously.
Has anyone else been documenting the weather this season?
