I’ve got the rock art photos and drawings in the Old Walls talk. I have printed out some pages on Ink-Aided paper and am stitching into them. Made a couple of stencils and sponged clear embossing fluid through them, then sprinkled with clear powder and puffed.
This acted as a resist when I printed them. Simple hand stitching will be followed by some machine work.
I think we were right not to do more at the show and I’m so glad that I put a lot of work into the two new talks before we went. It seems to have taken us longer than usual to get back to normal after this trip.
Our laptop was taken ill in Oz after being dropped by a taxi person. The fan broke and a very clever couple of chaps in Sydney fixed up an external one which kept going really well. This week however it finally died so we had a quick trip to the putey shop and got a dear little Dell-boy. He’s all up and running with all our talks on him, so fingers crossed.
I have been very remiss lately in answering comments so here is a catch up. Thanks for the comments on the hat. It was only an M&S one but I tarted it up a bit.
Ann: I sent for my paper from Power Planet – found them on Amazon Marketplace and they were very quick. I ordered loads so I hope it keeps well.
Doreen – are you better? Hope so.
Wabbit is so right about one’s own bed but it’s difficult to get it on a plane. Btw, Margaret – we didn’t set the timer for the bed pic, but got a granddaughter to take the pic. She thought it was a hoot.
I’m in Peebles – Scottish borders - soon Tattiekite, but that may be a little too far north for you.
I must also explain to Dale that a small holding in the UK is rather large – not quite a farm but usually a pretty good acreage – like your stand at Perth. I am kicking myself for not buying more while I was there – in particular those Starburst Stain sprays – I have put all my dauby Stains into spray bottles but I now need more colours!
