Happy Australia Day


Happy Australia Day from my beautiful tropical waterlily which just keeps on keeping on.
Well - we spent the first half of Australia Day at our warehouse (you didn't know we had a warehouse?) It's just around the corner in Bulwer Street and since we have been making decisions (read about it in the February newsletter - not really ominous Robin), organising the warehouse has been one of them. Ian bought a pile of new shelves and we have set the back area up as it should be and I found all manner of things I had forgotten we had. Quite exciting and soon we should be able to move a lot of our spare stock from our home to the warehouse (good word). The 'shop' will still be here of course - people come here almost every day and are always welcome if we are here to greet them - that will never change. If you don't get our newsletter you can sign up on our website - we have excellent specials for our special newsletter readers - some good stuff coming up in February as well.



This is my beautiful Stonehaven slushy dry felted - I love the way the silk has waved its way around. I was going to hand stitch but it is very delicate and I think I will work it on my embellisher. It really does look very delicate but it is quite strong as a fabric. I am working on new embellisher ideas in readiness for a next stage embellisher class - something about hot needles, cool stitches or vice versa. That and my gilding the lily should be ready in a month or two for on-line excitement.



Tonight we are off to Eva and Malachy's for an aussie day bbq - I have made a traditional kiwi pavlova with of course kiwifruit on the top - they being Irish who knows what they will offer.....

Just had news that Grant in SLAM was 3rd today - Grant says he was last around the first mark so that is even more wonderful - super stuff Grant.....

I seem to recall you saying a long time ago that you had moved all the extra stuff from your house to the warehouse? Exciting to find what you have hidden away though! Glad Grant is doing so well. I will look forward to the February newsletter. Cheers, Robin

You seem to be as busy as ever. Love the felted piece and the idea of embellishing it. The water lily is beautiful. How lovely to be able to call at your 'shop'. Enjoy the bbq.
