a little of this and a little of that
I am still on the deli paper - this is the Aussie deli paper - it is very similar - I have been using it as a base on which to spray tags with Glitz Spritz - these are the basket tags for Ally Pally - and then I use the gelli plate to create lovely paper. Always more to do later. All the boxes went off to London on Friday night - lots of work - not so much so many boxes but being quite specific about what to take and trying to keep in a weight limit - it is never our desire to have to bring things back - even more expense on return than going. So I hope I have a great eclectic collection of our lovely stuff to appeal to the visitors who come to the show. then Ian has all the paper work to do which looks rather tiresome to me and then pop it all out to the carriers. It should be in London tomorrow.

I am trying to decide on a colour theme for my holiday stitch this year - I an setting myself a challenge to work with just one stitch as preparation for one of my articles in the e-mag. I thought of black and white with a touch of red but now I am not sure. Maybe I should stick to the bright colours or.... Any suggestions appreciated. I just am not good at being willy nilly - I have to have a colour plan in my head. Anyone else like that? It will waste hours while I think and change my mind.
