I nearly forgot my picture posting tonight - Perth skyline - some lovely sunsets from our front garden at present. Makes a change from the sex workers - Smith Street was on the news the other night with our ladies of the night and the curb crawlers. At least we should feel safe - the area is riddled with police and rangers.
I have some new paints I am trying, They are like the Sun Dyes only thicker and there will be 30 of them when they arrive. Very pleased with the result. I shall also have at thickener which you can add and I am looking forward to using that too.
Today I did a stint at the craft show on the WAFTA stand. I didn't see anything at the show which I needed not even a new light bulb for my embellisher. Fortunately when I got home I found one in the tray. So now I can see. I changed all of the needles - I think you need to now and then but I still cannot get the replacement screw to fit the middle needle spot. This little piece is hand dyed cotton gauze on white merino wool. I haven't decided which side I will use.
I took a few of my little hand stitchy pieces with me and they received lots of interest which is what it is all about.
Today we decided to and signed up to go to Adelaide for the Sewing Stitching and Hand Craft Show 19th - 21st July at the Adelaide Showground. Hope if you are in the environs you will come and see us with all of our lovely stuff.
