Time to go wandering again
Today we fly away to London to Ally Pally for The Knitting and Stitching Show - arrive tomorrow morning and go straight there to set up. We are looking forward to seeing lots of friends and customers - new and old - followed by our holiday afterwards. This year we are going to Cornwall on the train. Back before you know we have gone. In the meantime, someone is making it tricky to fill the business suitcase.
I have also been exploring new uses for my favourite Tissutex so I have packed some of that as well. When you think of something new to play with you do have to experiment but it is so very rewarding when it works.
Deli paper - well I have tried the US one and Multix and also artists tracing paper (thanks Cindy) but they are all different. The Deli paper has a crease which annoys me for printing and it crackles quite a lot more - I am thinking that whatever you choose to play with is going to work in some way so if you cannot buy Deli paper in Aus, simply go with what you can find. The other paper I was waiting to try out was the bleeding artist paper - I ordered it about 5 months ago and it finally arrived - but it was brown now white. Not even worth complaining but Laura is very kindly sending me some so I can try it. On the other hand Tissutex is doing exactly what I want so I am happy.
I do expect to be a better blogger while I am away and I will post some of the excitements from the show and from Cornwall. really excited but better get packing or I will be left behind
