some more play


This is part of the back cover for my Stonehaven book - by no means finished but I wanted to show how the TAP image transferred to my embellisher fabric all cut and woven - the piece from yesterday has been cut in strips and woven with a number of other strips including some knitting - I find the Valdani perle cotton and 2 different sized knitting needles something I like to play with while waiting for the bbq to be ready. If you enlarge the pic you will see how the rocks photo has nicely slipped itself into this page. I now have lots of hand stitching and some more digitizing to do so I can start putting this book of samples together. My other little book is waiting for me to finish the involved hand stitch page (which will be included in The Holey Moley Club starting July 5th)

I have just finished writing the newsletter for May - we made a fast decision yesterday to take a stand at the Melbourne Paperific in June - found a cheap airfare and booked accommodation and paid for the stand so if you are coming to the Showgrounds for this show we will see you there. We went to the very first Paperific in 2000 so it will be good to be back. We are both quite partial to Melbourne.....

The saga of the pegs. You may remember I got a big bag of pegs for my birthday. I packed up the old faithful broken and dirty ones ready for the bin, opened up the new ones (I was assured they were very expensive) and lo and behold they all twisted and buckled and were useless. So back to the old faithfuls for a few more years I think......

I remember going to Melbourne on a holiday and visiting you at a paper craft show -but not at the showgrounds.
Would that be the same one?

Your back cover for the Stonehaven book is wonderful - those lovely textures are scrumptious. I must try knitting with odd sized needles, it sounds interesting.

What an exciting surface Dale! I'll look forward to seeing it develop.

Dale,

How well everything has merged, it all looks as if it has always been thus.

Hi Dale

Love your Stonehaven cover. Just what sort of pegs are you talking about? Are they ordinary clothes pegs or something special.

Cheers Mavis
