signing in on a wednesday
Don't know where the time has gone this week - we seem to have been very busy. Day starts quietly and I think I will get onto my stuff and important stuff like holey moley textures, writing the next workshop, getting the next product a month ready, working on my latest scheme etc etc - when all of a sudden after I hear the phone and fax go and then look at the inbox - and voila - there are heaps of orders. It has got hot again but at this stage we dare not turn on the aircon - when the sparkies came back to fix up the big blow they obviously rushed back to the office and sent off another huge bill - this time insurance I am sure.
We have had lots of new goodies arrive - above are one of the new Twiddleybitz - whimsy bird friends - they take colour really well - I use Starburst Sprays etc and then you get that lovely extra bit of mica shine.
Today also the complete range of Smooch Sprays arrived - they are the same as the little pots of Smooch - good for in your handbag - the photo seems to have turned upside down so if you turn on your head you can read the words... this is black cherry I think.
Then I did some more texture - my Holey Moley girls - I will send you the next file tomorrow - I just needed to finish the last wee bit. This pic looks like a sneaky sample to tease you.
Don't know how well you see this - maybe if you enlarge it - blonde moments - watch this space. If I said that to you what would you say (I don't mean blonde jokes or anything like that but just a couple of words) Best ones I like I will send you a parcel of goodies from The Thread Studio.
Then about 5pm this evening, late as usual, the latest quilting arts arrived. Just as well we have so many other excitements so we don't have to fuss when they are late - this time held up in customs for lack of paper work..... We might not get them all out until Tuesday, folks. There are so many to send that it does take me two days when we are so busy and I haven't quite finished the newsletter yet.
My leg - (sounds like something doesn't it?) My continuing thanks for all the emails and notes - I really appreciate it - thanks to Julie I went to a myotherapist (he deals with muscles and soft tissue and stuff and dry needles - how exciting) and apart from the bruises he has inflicted on me (no gain without pain) I am almost there - swimming is great (and walking in the pool), walking is almost right and I know longer have to stand up at restaurants. Plus I do my exercises religiously. I would rather not take drugs - prevention is much a better option - I do prefer my drugs to be only in glass and be red or white. So this is for Kenny - try a myotherapist.
Bruce is back home in Sapporo and he has created a wonderful slide show of his pilgrimage and a super sound track to accompany.
Off to dinner tonight with Val and Jim and Kathy. Finish newsletter first thing in morning. I have lamb shoulder waiting in the fridge to make a curry....
