Glorious Rain

Can't complain - just what the doctor ordered. TRUFFA - as on our front pillar in red - apparently means hoax or spoof. The hoax is that I stamped the word on Romeo (cold water soluble) with red paint of course and stitched my new found word onto felt and sprayed it with water to remove said film. BUT - wet weather means it is taking a lifetime to dry. Not complaining - painting up fusible webbing while I wait. this little bit of graffiti is pushing me to red, black and grey. Watch this space.

Bruce flew off to Sapporo last night - we had dinner at Wot the Po and sent him on his way where he now is. He and Kaz will be back in June.

The muchness of holidays we have had has meant that our palettes from Melbourne are not here - under normal circumstances they should have been here on Friday - now it will be tomorrow or Friday - I am waiting impatiently because in some cases I cannot remember what is coming. What did arrive today was GLEAM - this is our lovely new gilding wax and am I impressed - you bet!


there are 6 different sets but this one is a little gem of Cardinal, Cerise and Rich Copper - I have been smooching it out onto any surface I can find. My suitcase of all my samples and journals etc is on the palette - missing friends...
I also finally took my sewing machine to hospital - it went bang and dead on Christmas Eve and I have been using my Orchidea ever since. David says he hasn't anything like that happen before - hope it isn't too serious and doesn't take too long and lucky it will have a service and update while it is there. it's a Husq Designer SE and a lovely machine. And I want to do some digitised words.....  in red of course....

Looking forward to seeing your TRUFFA. Hope the palettes soon get back to you and that your sewing machine is OK. GLEAM looks gorgeous - I wonder if it has reached the UK yet. I shall have to stop being so mean and shop at The Thread Studio and just cough up for the shipping costs!

Thanks for your comment re shoes. I too love shoes so haven't actually thrown them all out. I hope I may still wear some even if just for a couple of hours at a time. I was however pleasantly surprised at the lovely rang available in the orthotic shoes ranges. Some pretty colours and all. The main thing I hope is to be pain free to walk as much as I wish.
I hope Japan stay still and steady while your ones are there!
