Yes I am Still Here and Alive

 No - I haven't fallen off the perch - just been further frustrated by Blogspot trying to write my blog when away. I even have a helpful girl from blogspot trying to sort it but I have loaded blogsy but just need to find the time to work out how to use it. most frustrating. I had a lovely weekend in Rockhampton as guest at the Craft Show - lots of lovely people and a very nice host - Elaine - look what she had in her garden - wow!

 I played at the show with  an embellisher and with the flower stitcher - both were very popular and I took a few related goodies to sell - not much - just a table full

 and this was my messy table full of samples - I always take loads of samples becasue people like to see them and handle them and ask questions - it always shows just how well things stand up to the handling etc.

Right now we are getting organized to go to the show in Adelaide tomorrow - set up on Thursday and show opens on Friday to Sunday so we hope to see anyone who is going. I am actually demoing throughout most of the show and have actually got everything organist for this - packed and in the suitcases. Our stuff went last Friday but there has been mountains to do.
I have set myself the task of creating work for three exhibitions - one piece has gone but this is another - much larger than I usually do so I have a lot of stitching to do - guess what I will be working on in the plane and in any other moment I can find.

I have started stitching though. Good occupation whilst watching Le Tour de France because it is slow go - well they are biking fast enough.

Bruce is in UK biking for 3 weeks - he got to the start of the Tour de France and seems to be having a great time.

Grant has been sailing on Lake Garda in the European 18ft Skiffs Champs which they won so looks like it is us slogging away at home. Never mind our time will come.

Just in time for June, Issue 5 of appeared and I reckon it's a good read.

and today I sent out Month 1 of the Artful Journey club - wonderful response it has been

and I woke in the night thinking about a new idea and a new project or two - fabulous Boro - this book Bruce and Kazuko bought for me when they were living in Japan - so inspirational and my brain is thinking what next - but really - I must wait until the current deadlines are done.

i have also been slogging away starting to get everything sorted for the Broome Artistic retreat next August 22nd and 23rd  - all the info should be up on the website next week when we get back from Adelaide.

There is no let up for you - you seem to be as busy as ever, if not more so. Lovely images of samples and goodies. Are those mangoes growing in your friend's garden - I have never seen them growing.

Dale, what on earth is that fruit/vegetable in the first photo? Your samples look good enough to eat! Hope the shows go well.
