a little velvet experience

thanks to Jacinta's suggestion I have been playing with hand dyed viscose velvet - many people will know that we emboss a lot on velvet but this was a new trial and I have been exploring a few others as well. No info yet to share but it has been rather exciting and something very new. The illumination stamp is on the left.

Lovely day in Perth today - Ian shot the real video today but as he hasn't turned his computer on, he will edit it and I will load it to facebook tomorrow. It was an experiment to see what people thought of the idea and got a good response. I plan to load a number of videos to facebook - at this stage on the distressables and then they will appear on our website - just short informative (hopefully) videos which may help to create an understanding. And of course, on facebook, there will probably be a good deal or two as well. And I plan a  slide show to match each one but that will be here.

Watched Samoa play the Wallabies today and what a great game and what a great win to Samoa - for the little guys. Have to say I thought the Wallabies looked rather rattled - they must have expected to win easily after last year 74 - 7....
