relaxing on a public holiday

it's March....
Just as well it is a public holiday today - the phone has been busy and the orders flowing in but time to relax indoors. We were rather exhausted last night after our two days at the warehouse which was a great success - we are thinking we might open on Sat mornings from time to time so people can actually go right into the depth of the labyrinth. but not in this weather. We must have chosen the worst weekend almost. After we recovered last night, we went off to Gogos for a lovely meal. We thought we probably deserved it.




We even had a sleep in this morning. It is even hotter today - 38 I do believe. I have written the newsletter and have been playing with both my flower stitcher to get work finished for an article and playing - here is the latest page from my sketchbook - I am trying to get that deteriorated and slightly fossilised look. Using Xpandaprint and paint and chiffon scarf and stitch and spray and stuff.

Woudln't it be lovely if it rained tomorrow? Bruce's departure has been delayed until Tuesday - the earthquake in Chile led to tsunami warnings and the train was cancelled.

ps if you received our newsletter, you will have noticed the stuff up I made with the email addresses! mail@thethreadstudio.com and threads@icenet.com.au
I didn't want to be a nuisance by sending another email to people...

Glad you take time out to relax sometimes - you both work so hard. Wonderful sketchbook page - very fossily. Hope it rains for you soon and cools everything down.

Hope the weather's cooled down a bit now for you Dale, you've had more than your share of scorchers.
I hope to go the the Quilting show when it's in Melbourne so I'll look out for all of your goodies.

I hope that you get a cool change soon, Dale. As someone who does not cope with hot weather, I do feel for you. I didn't notice the email address thing, but a big thank you for extending the 'tantrum' deadline...I started, but life got in the way!

Oh please give us some of your heat. Here in Sweden we are still up to our ears (Yes that is right) in snow and very cold weather. Last weekend I spent 12 hours on a train that got stuck in the snow. A trip that normally takes 3 hours. Thank God I had my embroidery with me!

Thanks for a lovely blog.
