Kazuko and Bruce are in Japan for a few weeks and they took part in a bilke race. Here is Kazuko on the podium. Bruce crashed into a tree so he didn't manage the podium for the race
But for travelling a long way they both got a podium award - see Bruce's knee for proof. Apparently the bike is okay.
I have the dreaded flu given to me by Ian - it is nearly gone but I keep coughing and sneezing and we are supposed to go to the ACO tonight but I fear I will spend all night in the foyer so I am not going. Shame as I love the ACO but since I am one of the first to complain when people cough and splutter I feel it would be a bit hippocritical. The bags of Maori wool - a mix of NZ corriedale and coopworth are on of the reasons we can't see much of our dining room and kitchen floor. 80 colours and I am packaging them slowly. The embellisher loves this wool - it is soft and springy.
And to make sure we have even less space, 7 colours of very fine prefelts (flimsies to us) rocked up as well. I have cut up 3 of them so far. Harley watches them with fear as she is sure that they will fall into her food bowl or onto her when she is eating.
finally after a long time of hunting we have our own silk cocoons and Jacinta is dyeing them up in all of our colours - we have quite a few so far. Much better price for much more cocoons. http://www.thethreadstudio.com/catalogue/fibre/cocoons/dyedtext.htm
These are fun little things. I would love to know how people use them other than what I do with them
Okay then - dreaded lurgy vanish overnight. I have far too much to do
