brave moves



I have been fiddling with my blog so I could add bigger words at the top and have a little more control over things. Last year Jacinta made it three columns but I have never been able to make some of the features work so I decided to change it back to two columns. Tell me what you think of it. I like things to be simple without clutterance and don't want patterned backgrounds to cloud the words and pics. I have been able to create pages at the top for my handson workshop on 12th November (which has a couple of bookings I am thrilled to say) and for my books.

You may be wondering why I have this picture. Someone emailed me today to say that she had heard that kunin felt (made from recycled plastic bottles) did not react properly to being heated with a heat gun. Let me assure you that the kunin felt we sell and which I use all the time, burns away beautifully. I took a piece today and did a heap of free stitching and then zapped half of it to show you. Just had to add some silver gleam over part to give it a real accent.

Back to the slog. I have been to the hairdressers though for refusching for our trip..... Some people have been worrying about the lack of strong colour - yesterday when I was in my Vietnamese supermarket buying my coconut milk and greens, the girl told me my hair had changed colour and she really liked the bright me. Wow - and here I am hoping no-one knows who I am when I am out and about shopping....

At last after roaming around for weeks, our shipment of Moonglow Sprays has arrived. love the new labels and now I can put together the three new trios I am creating. No rest for some.

Love the new look. You have achieved a crisp and uncluttered new look - it places more emphasis on your images.
Love the effect you are achieving with this piece.

Your blog looks great Dale and I like the look of the kunin felt piece. Sadly, some so-called kunin felt doesn't burn as it should, as I have found, so it is best to make sure before buying. I'm sure yours is the good stuff.
No sneaking down to the shops in scruffy clothes - you're famous now! You could always get a grey wig so no-one recognises you!!

The new look is great. Very easy for more mature eyes to see.

Hi dale. I hope you dont get this comment three times from me. I have made several attempts to get it up! However, what I am trying to say is that I like your new look blog, and especially the new, larger and clearer tabs (home/workshops/books).

I like it much better, easier on the eye with the wider strip. I'm looking forward to seeing/meeting you in a couple of weeks re fuchsiaed too, it would be greater to pick up a world cup give away though but we can't have it all!! lol
