Today is like a winter's day in Christcurch - it is cold, windy and raining off and on. I saw on the news that Sydney had the most rain today for 100 years and I got a letter from one of my students - Paula from the Netherlands - telling me that her house was flooded last week and everything is underwater. I feel so sorry for her and shall send her a parcel of goodies tomorrow not that it will replace anything.
Just to show that I have been having fun with the springy eyelets, here are some pics. Now I shall be on the lookout for intersting eyelets. I have been to a few places in Perth and had a little google search but they are all pretty ordinary, so if anyone has exciting ones, do let me know. The springy eyelet gizmo is easy to use, if noisy. I did find some little tiny ones and a big star.
The springy thingy works well on copper shim too. The big one is playing around with holes from the screw punch.
Tonight I have broken a needle on the embellisher - first one - I will have to try and find the booklet to see how to remove and replace. I know I saw it somewhere.....
I have also been playing with the new Starburst Stains - decorating a few more tags for the frangipani book from a wee while back - this is all because I want to put more eyelets on. It's amazing what amuses us.
Blogger doesn't want to add my pics tonight so I shall come back later.....
Friday update - I still can't load any pics and I have tried everything that the blogger people tell you to try - it seems there is a bit of an ongoing problem. I have cleaned out files, tried mozilla and internet explorer, rebooted the computer. So sorry, folks, no pics......... You will have to use your imagination.
Saturday update - such frustration - I can now half load but when it says click done, there is no done. Keep watching this space - I will post again and back post my accumulated pics when beta blogger is ready to play ball.
Much later on Saturday night. You will see Ihave pictures - not loaded in the normal way but the whole episode has driven me nuts but I was determined to load some pictures and since I had no DONE to click on I have simply dragged the pictures onto the posting page. Must say I am pleased with having got htis far.
Tonight it is pouring with rain and we are about to watch the Wallabies play South Africa.
