This is part of my first vessel - two sides all laced together and a supporting pillar. They will soon all be bound together. I have used my Japanese screw punch to make holes for the eyelets and my spring thingies to set them. Worked a treat.
I didn't quite get my first vessel finish but all the components are done - the bottom is stitched and scratched and moonshadowed Shanghai newspapers for the inside, the red is lots of stitch and stuff for the ourside, the top rod is a bead made from Shanghai newspapers and stitch and some words. Taking it all to forum in Geelong to finish and work on some others.
I should have some finished ones when I get back, having spent part of the day packing and shopping (someone had no trousers and shorts and was a little desperate. Now he is looking VERY suave with all these new clothes - all ready for London so watch out).
I fly off at 6am (yuk) but much better than the midnight horrible.
Embellisher workshop - well I have had 25 emails from people not from Perth but from all over so obviously I am in the wrong place. Perhaps everyone here knows much more than me.
I am teaching at AQC in Melbourne in February and the programme arrived on Friday - I think I need to go to how to look nice in a photo class....
I have also fiddled with Beta Blogger and updated my template and have lost my links - but managed to get a couple back like the site meter and Loose Ends. I don't remember the codes for the others....
Post next Sunday and if anyone is going to Geelong - see you there.
