Catching up on my errant ways. I like to blog but time has simply slipped off the radar. We have bought ourselves new chair covers for our favourite little corner - bought them from a place in Sydney but I would never deal with her again. When they arrived (despite sending measurements) they were too narrow across the bottom but do you think she had the manners to reply to my emails? She could have replied and told us that they would stretch into place after a few sittings instead of having us cross and panicking. The other ones we have had for over 30 years and while they still were basically okay, were starting to tear in the corners. So now we are recoloured and revamped. See the chillie plant in the foreground? Very very hot little chillies and many of them.
Friday night we went to the opening of the Fringe Festival - this was outside the Gardens of Pleasure looking down into town. Plenty of people around - we didn't go to any shows - just checking things out.
We also went into the Cultural Centre - big queues - best avoided
Back at the Pleasure Gardens
If you like following my recipes, I have added a couple more on my recipe page.

I had a lot of scraps over - I keep everything when I am stitching and embellishing and as I am working with letters and words quite a bit at present I embellished lots of scraps on a flimsies and laid some scrim over the top then cut out a k and a d and crudely stitched them to one of the pieces I am working on. Lots of potential of ideas on this front.
I am working on another project as well and trying to coax Evolon to shrivel for me. Of course it burns and carves but this is something else for texture.

I have spent all weekend working - surprise - packaging loads of Maori carded wool - it takes for ages and tomorrow I will do the last lot. I have more than enough things on my list but I am very pleased with myself becasue I have sent out all of the POMs - even though they are no longer on the web we still have a heap of people receiving them every month. Plus I have got quite a few of the clubs ready to post - and for me it is only 5th of the month. Plus I have a new club ready to announce as well.
The newspaper I was working on - I have now started on hand dyed fabric - added extras and twin needled it all. This is just a small section of something I am hoping to get done in time to enter it for an exhibition - if I don't finish I have other plans.
