off we go for a wee bit of r and r


Tonight we are off to Bali - I have made feta, tomato, rocket and prosciutto rolls because we are flying with Virgin. Haven't heard of there are any volcanoes around this weekend so hopefully no dramas. We are going to the same villas we have been at for the past three years - this year it is full up and we have been upgraded to their best villa which means a bigger pool I think. This is our usual villa without me in the pool. Naturally I have packed my togs and not much else as yet. But I will be packing my books, my writing stuff, my stitching stuff, my beads (yes Lisa), my sketchbook and Ian will be packing his books and his switch off mode. We will be back on Tuesday. As usual we are on the rekindle your romance package which means we get 4 nights for price of 3, one healthy lunch, all breakfasts, a romantic candlelight dinner and spa stuff - maybe painted toenails are in order once again.

Last night's dinner for Chinese New Year was most lovely - the photos I took inside the restaurant are so pink - this is one of the dragons outside - it was a dragon dance and of course I wrote dragon race - I guess they were racing to get their hot gear off at the end. Lots of fun.

Here is one piece I put together with some of the lutradur I painted yesterday. I have soldering ironed  out some shapes and bonded them to a heavier layer and stitched. It's quite translucent when you hold it to the light. If you click to enlarge it and then click again you can see more detail.

Holey Moley people - don't forget to visit the blog for a little starter to whet your appetites while I am away.

One World One Heart 2011 - do visit my blog entry below this one and leave a comment for  a piece of my work - you have until 17th February.

Off to pack a few more things.

Enjoy your romantic break - painted toenails are a must! Love the Lutrador piece - gorgeous colours and such controlled stitching - I always get a nervous twitch somewhere. Have a great trip.

Have fun. Your piece inspires me to use some of the Grunge board I had to have.

Hi! Dale,

I've just caught up with you going to Bali, I know you enjoyed it because I read down the page. Looks such a quiet relaxing place.

That lutradur piece is a real winner Dale. I just love it.
