welcome to April
Welcome to April - as you can see this should be a good month and the champagne cork is next to our monthly puss to prove it. I am pretty sure this cork is from the bottle when we celebrated the removal of the air con from the wall blocking the right of way next door. I am glad April is here - although the weather man tells us it is going to stay over 30 for at least the next week. I have finally resorted to covering my feet with a sheet but only because I got cramp and not because they were cold. I lost a day this week - very tight schedule getting stuff ready for AQC and I was sure it was Wednesday yesterday and got a shock when Ian told me I was wrong. this means I have had to move bits of one day's list onto the other days - help.... our stuff goes off on the palettes on Wed which is not far away.
Still new stuff and parcels appearing - Wendy Cotterill's book has arrived and is moving out the door - Lutradur, Evolon, Heat Distressable Tissue and more. She talks about nappy (diaper) liners - of course Zap Cloth is the same product which I found after nappy liners were discontinued. Lots of great photos and new things to think about. Still trying to get to play more with Evolon which is a lovely fabric. At AQC I am giving 2 half hour talks - one is Colour Colour Colour and the other Tantalizing Textures where I am talking about these fabrics and other ways to create great textural effects. As usual I will have more samples and words than time will allow.
After months of nothingness I have finally started using my twitter so if you want to follow my name is downunderdale00 - don't even ask why the 00 -
Lots of rugby coming up this weekend - waiting for the Hurricanes game tomorrow to see how they go....
