friday musings

It's a beautiful day in Perth today - I went to the optician and got my specs fixed finally. When we flew back from Brisbane my back pack fell out of the overhead locker and landed on my face knocking my glasses off. They have been all wobbly and mis-shaped since although one nice optician put a little rubber ring on to make them slightly better. Today I made the long trek to my optician to have them fixed. They are great glasses as they are very very light and the first pair in my life that I have not fussed about wearing. The optician was pleased to see me as she had forgotten how to felt so in return for a bit of spec work I gave her a quick lesson on felt making - amazing isn't it? She is coming to the craft show at Claremont next weekend to see me working away in my dedicated little area.



Ian has been adding lots of new goodies to the website - one parcel which came this week contained these beautiful ceramic buttons in different sizes and shapes - I have taken a couple for my first Stonehaven journal which I am starting to put together (trying to pretend to be organised for next week). They are hand made in Tasmania so a special treat from Australia - thanks Tracey!  He has also loaded the Tim Holtz Tissue Tape - this is the one I have been using in my journal.
Grant emailed to tell us they are now coming first with 2 races to go today. I think that might be Grant on the front - well he IS the bowman.....


It's Friday afternoon and as soon as the mail has been done we are knocking off for a nice glass of something in the setting sun..... I think I have done enough packaging for the show next week right now - carry on tomorrow....

Those buttons are gorgeous and I love their gentle textures. Well done to Grant and Co. Enjoy your relaxation in the evening sun and hope you have a great time at the show next week.
