Beautiful day yesterday - we relaxed and enjoyed it. Went to Mrs S for breakfast - Whatley Crescent in Mayland is a busy place and good to see. It was warm and even the wind was warm. Becasue they said a rain front was coming I went off to the nursery and bought herbs and stuff and planted them - overnight it was very windy and wet so that is a good start. I am hoping that this year my tomoatoes will in fact have tomoatoes which we can eat. We sat outside the studio last night and enjoyed a glass of Momo and some prawns.
We watched the rugby on Saturday night - I think the selectors had a hard night because there are too many good players to choose but tomorrow the squad will be announced so we are skittishly waiting for that news.
Loads of lovely comments left on The Thread Studio facebook page for the 700 prize draw which was won by Evelyn - FB wouldn't let me load her prize but here it is and all posted off tonight. We are working our way to 800 already - when I will have another prize draw.
I still seem to have a long list of things I should have done but have not yet - I shall blame the weather entirely. I am still making tags for Ally Pally and have now started on the idea of some flags to hang on our stand. In the meantime I did some work using TAP (Transfer Artist Paper) onto Evolon and lightweight Lutradur. I know some people in Australia have had trouble with TAP but I can honestly say it has always worked for me and I don't always leave it in a bag in the dark - in fact the words above were printed some time back and I found them under the table when I was vacuuming on Saturday so I transferred it with my fingers crossed. I personally think there was a bad batch but no-one seems to want to take responsibility for it. We do sell an awful lot though so our turn over is good. I guess my advice woudl be to buy it when you need it - I don't believe that humidity is the issue it has been made out to be. It's pretty humid here too.
I have just posted my Friday offering to Creative Brains blog - I shall blame the weather for being days late on that one too.
