monday - rain/no rain
Thought it might rain but it did not. But I did sit outside to unpick my stitching (note to self - use a backing piece of felt if you are not prepared to hold the fabric firmly) and some rainlets fell on me for about 15 minutes. First I stitched on my silk noil (backed with felt)
We have both had a very frustrating day today with several things to drive up potty - I went to the post office miles away where my long awaited parcel which should have been delivered on 5th was and am of to play with my purchase - yummy colour blocks not available in OZ yet so I am pretty excited about that. Before I can though, i have to unpack all the boxes of goodies which arrived. The parcel postie kept staggering in with more - some restock and some new stock. One thing we did get were rolls of Heat Distressable Tissue which Wendy Cotterill has in her new Spunbonded book. I have had it for a while but only hda a couple of pieces left so now it can go on the web. It's a tissue which distorts like tyvek when you apply heat but it stays soft unlike tyvek. Loves the Starburst Sprays of course (shoudln't everything?)
So off to unpack and then to play. Plus I have to get my 3rd pdf up for Holey Moley.
