Monday is always busy here but we were like a receiving station most of the day - receiving orders which we tried to wade through and receiving parcels and parcels. We reckon we grow rubbish at our place with all the boxes and packaging. Anyway - 4 new books - Maggie's, Carol and Lynda's, a very good free machine embroidery one from Carol Shim (I think I have the name correct) and Inspired to Quilt. Along with a shipment of Romeo, 4 fabulous moulding mats from Sarah Lawrence a very large box of Shiva stuff, lots of wool and silk from Jacinta and new packaging stuff. So kitchen is just starting to look like a kitchen once more at the end of the day.
I have had a lot of fun with my polaroid pogo photographing eucalyptus leaves and flowers and stitching them onto backgrounds - I am making a series of 6 and here is the beginnings of one - the last one in fact with the close up of the pod. If you are coming to Ally Pally you might have a chance to receive one of these with other goodies but more of that later on. I have more stitching and stuff to add and of course the backs but when I have finished I will show them as a set. from the leaves through to he close up of the pod on a eucalyptus background.
