making progress

Hi all

thank you for your lovely comments, so nice to know I was missed xx

its been so hot here, makes a change to have all this sun, so we are making the most of it.

I have been to my first pulmonary rehab, yes in this heat I did an hour of gentle exercises, it seems like its going to useful and fun, mind you twice a week   for that and other appointments I am pushing it to find time for minis.

I sprayed the helmet black and then decided that  I needed more room inside and also it would be hard for anyone to look inside without breaking their backs, I needed to raise the helmet up.

So on with my thinking hat, I decided raise it using blocks of wood and bendy wood panelling, thank god for no more nails!! using that and tape, I left it for 24hrs and it worked, now i need to build on it, I need to have a small platform for the helmet to stand on.

I continued on with painting the bits I made, to make the mechanics cabinet, I made a cupboard and then I took the legs of a chest of chairs and this will go on the top. I am not sure now it is painted, I think it may be painted again but this time shinny red, that seems to be the colour of them, plus when I placed it in the helmet the colour of it did not make it stand out. will think about it, yes thought and yes i am going to repaint it, anyway its supposed to look like metal, why do we never make life easy for ourselves.

I am so glad I have my mojo back

couple of photos for you

What a clever idea to make a biker's workshop out of a helmet! I like the idea of painting it red! Will it be all red or just the shop sign?
Isn't wonderful when you mojo shows up when most needed? Enjoy your mojo while it lasts Debbie, then please send it over to my house. I haven't seen it for quite a while either! :))
