I am so thrilled with your response to the new WoW and Quiltwow merge. It’s good to know we’re getting it right and we’ve had lots of new subscribers since I posted, so that is wonderful. Thanks for all the support and the lovely emails.
Diana you can look at the big free Taster before signing up – all on the site at www.workshopontheweb.com
Doreen – number of sleeps is going down quite scarily. I am planning my demos for the Perth show. I thought a pinch of water soluble technique, a smidgeon of vanishing muslin excitement, some carrier rod silks and a little Ink-Aid stirred in. This will be news to Dale, as I think this is totally different to the last info I gave her. Good thing that she stocks everything known to woman. No doubt she'll give me some new stuff to play with, too. So looking forward to it.
Textile Arty – good tip about composing posts. I’ll certainly look into it. It was so annoying with the last post as I like to think about what I write, not just dash it off. The whole lot went – pics and all and I had been saving as I went along, too. I won’t tell you what I said!
So glad you enjoyed the talk Frances – yours is a lovely branch and I had a good time, too. The Velcro was a bit of a giggle. It actually reminded me that I’d forgotten to turn my mobile off. It’s most embarrassing if the speaker’s phone rings.
Heather – thanks for the message, news on the baby printer below. It seems easy to get the specials papers Margaret, so I don’t think it can be going out of circulation.
Today we went for our holiday jabs – just boosters, as we were quite up to date. However, I think it must have mangled my brain as I gave Fiona a message to send out about the books in which I said I’d written Stitching the Textured Surface and Lynda and Carol had written Stitches, Straps and Layers! Good thing you lot know what’s what!
The books are on their way down to me from Tunbridge Wells and I’ve just had a call from Michael who is seeing them on their way. He is not given to great shows of emotion but he was so excited about the way the books looked. We have used a new printer and he seems to be very good.
So, tomorrow will be a mad day of stuffing books and distributing the goodies. I’ll blog in the afternoon, from Fiona’s house where the stuffing will take place.
Now, back to the Pogo printer. The new one arrived and is wonderful. It’s only a tiny pic but the resolution is really quite good, considering it is straight from the camera with no sharpening. I did a few sketchbook pages on last week’s Common walk and some pics of late rhodies.
That’s the pic, much blown up, of course. They are sticky backed and it is possible to hand stitch into them. Here’s a page – I just wet the page as a base and dabbed with Starburst Stains.
Then covered the pics with skeleton leaves. They are a little shiny but not full gloss.
This page is more leaves and cut up pics. I am so pleased – I know I can come home and print off all my holiday pics, but I never do. I put them on a CD and there they stay. Now I shall do my sketchbooks on the move and I’m going to start in Scotland later this week.
I'll be back tomorrow with the launch blog.
