I really thought I had enough of the hexagon flowers. And in fact I do, but not enough of the pale green eau de nil. I found a strip to make just enough more of them.
I have a beam compass but the chaos of the studio meant I could not find the beam. Two choices, either keep hunting and lose more time or just measure it out over and over again until I could make a big circle and join up the dots. I opted for the latter. The circle has an 18" radius so will measure about 38" because I am not lining up the hexagons inside the circle.
Meanwhile I still hate Windows 8.1 and will probably download the Classic Shell but I want to get my photos and files off my old hard drive first.
And something more serious. Ebola. My daughter's best friend Holly is out in Sierra Leone working for Oxfam. She is not nursing or being a doctor but nonetheless she is out there working. She has learnt how they now greet people, not by a handshake, but the Ebola greeting of putting your hand on your chest. She met Mary, a community health worker who said ''One of my friends family, 10 of them are all dead in one house. If you are on Twitter you can follow Holly here. If you are not, then please donate to Oxfam in the UK, Oxfam in the USA, or Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).
It is no exaggeration to say Holly and everyone working in the Ebola stricken regions have put their lives on the line to help. The least we can do is give some cash.
You can hear Holly here on the BBC this afternoon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FAQDvpyln8&feature=youtu.be
