I have been on blogger learning class today. Ever since Jacinta made my blog a three column blog I have never been able to get my header to fit across the page - nobody has ever been rude enough to comment. I have re-photographed it and reloaded it all to no avail - so today I decided to pop up my Shanghai vessel which is quite a different structure. I had managed a few weeks back to delete feedburner for subscribing and had given up trying to find the code until Teresa told me she had changed her address but couldn't find the place to add her new one. So I spent some time searching and finally success. Hope you got there Teresa....
Then I have been setting up the blog for Hot Needles Cool Stitches and I hope to be able to invite all the class tomorrow. Thanks to Lisa I got a few things sorted - maybe it is the heat which has fried my thinking brain..... Just to make a video in the morning before it gets too hot. I have still got my blogger training shoes on though - things don't stay static these days for sure....
Why the rose? Well I do love them and I buy a bunch quite often - never expensive - there were $10 and I have been creating the start of my slow cloth in those glorious pale colours I call Vanilla Beans and Old Roses. Before you ask, this is my sample sari ribbon - the order is not here yet and I haven't heard as to when but I will tell you in loud letters when they are coming. I have created a piece 80cm long
all woven and at this stage stitched across each row. These lovely old saris are quite fragile so it is going to be something rather fragile to work on.
I plan lots more stitching and lots of tiny stitching and some image transfer and not quite sure what else yet. Maybe some words - yes I think so.
Last night it was too hot to have our bbq so we went down the road for honey prawns. It is probably going to be too hot tonight as well but I have the lamb cutlets all marinating in spices etc. Might have to cook indoors.
A shipment from India arrived on Friday but it was only half of the order - lots more silk twist and the first of the Mayuri silk yarn. Luscious.
