the start of the rust series



this is start of my rust series. I took lots of photos while watching the yachting - I love the patterns and the colour and plan to do things with it all. There were lots of other things for me to go back and photo more soon. I have got the iron gall and dragons breath inks coming for all of those who have asked me - it has taken a bit of persuading and sorting out the best way to get it all to Australia but I think we will all have great fun playing with it. Be sure to read the next WOW in June since I have now told Maggie all about it.....

Tomorrow is my birthday and we are off early in the morning to Bintan, an island off Singapore, for some r and r. Be back on Monday night. We decided that since we work every weekend we would have a real one off - first up planned to go to Bali until the Garuda plane crash and then I scoured the internet looking for somewhere we could get to without flying for hours. We are going on a Birthday package which means champagne on arrival or something. Plan to swim, read and do very little although I will be checking emails if only to clear all the spam but I will also answer anyone. I have packed my sketchbook and stitchy and marky sort of stuff to do some experimenting and catch up with the TAST stitches. I am a bit vague now that I have finished all my part of the book. The book should go to the printers next week and as soon as it does we will take preorders.

See you all next Tuesday........
