Flat out today invoicing and sending out all of the Quilting Arts - apparently we have really got lucky and are just about the first anywhere to get this issue. Good old UPS (Useless Parcel Service - the very same people who let us down in London last year) managed to lose one box for a day in Singapore but it turned up late this afternoon in a not very good state.Luckily the mags inside are alright.
Copper Tissue - I should clarify this - it really is real copper - a very fine shim - and there has been a lot of talk about the rising price of copper and the fact that it is being stolen from everywhere. We will need to lock our big roll away! The reason I am excited with it is that it is a lot softer than shim and lots of people are frightened to stitch on the shim although it is fine once you have annealed it. Our biggest problem is that it is very hard to get hold of in Australia and this fine one was a bonus find.
I also got these wonderful silk sewing threads for stock. They are around a 40weight and lovely to stitch with.
Off to our local pub for dinner where they keep us a table on Tuesdays. Turns out we are such good regulars that we got a complimentary bread and butter pudding - all a bit decadent especially since we are both on our health kick..... But very nice. Haven't had bread and butter pudding for years. Next thing we will be thinking about roley poley pudding - ah the decadence of lost years gone by and good stodgy pommie food.......
