bit more fabric book and AQC


I have made another piece of fabric - this time twin needled but waiting to have bits cut out of it. And I have also made a piece of very textured fabric, some of which will be inserted. This will be the back of the cover or maybe the start of a page. Who knows.... It has a slightly rusty attitude I think.


No Gill - I don't hand stitch watching the rugby - I usually wind threads but I have been somewhat lazy this season and have been doing nothing, just drawing in my notebook at half time.....

and Heather - thrilled to hear England won - Ian says see it as All Black revenge for the World Cup. I never relax until the fat lady has sung her last note followed by a full stop.

AQC 2010 - yesterday was decision day at Chez Rollerson. Just before we went to Melbourne this year, we decided that 2009 would be our last year. But the venue was so lovely (those wooden floors made an awful lot of difference) and the people who came so happy to see us, that yesterday we finally decided (it being the last day to decide) that we would be back. The dates are later - end of April which suits us better. It means we can go watch Grant sailing in Sydney formore than 2 rush days and it should be cooler in Melbourne. Hope all you Melbournians are happy about this....

Last night after an extremely hot day (39) we were going to have a bbq but Ian decided that he didn't want to add fire to heat so we had fish and chips down by the river. So nice that we are going down again tonight but this time with our bbq to cook. These little pleasures will be lost to us next year when daylight saving is apparently not going to happen. It will be too dark by the time we get there and anyway we will be exhausted after having been woken up so early. One of life's little pleasures vanishing....

I can't believe the daylight saving thing. I always think it should be doubled!

Heather said...

Your book pages are so gorgeous - lovely textures. Is there a chance that the daylight saving thing will be so unpopular that it will be stopped and things returned to normal?

As ever such beautiful work.
Did you ever get back to Morocco?
India had amazing colors too - but I still prefer Morocco.
Greetings from NY.

I hope all the faded curtain/cow loving people are happy Dale--maybe you will have to come over this side of the big Island and live--we are all civilized over here-well most of us anyway.

This non Melburnian Victorian is VERY happy with your decision to come back in 2010. Unfortunately I won't be home, but I'm hoping you'll like in so much, you'll make it an annual event...remember, we've got Lygon Street & Victoria St for Vietnamese & Thai (best in the country) & Acland St for the best cakes in the whole world...actually, I'm going on hearsay now,...I've never been OS, but it wouldn't surprise me because it is in Melbourne after all..In 2010 I'll be in WA, so I'm hoping I can buy some goodies from Chez Rollerson & go to the WA Stitches & Craft where you might be teaching...won't that be wonderful...for me, anyway !!
