Hi All - I am still here! I have been really busy getting ready for a workshop weekend (7th-9th May to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the West Aussie branch of the Aussie Lace Guild) ...I am doing needle lace (as a student not a tutor this time) and I have been getting things ready for it - also I am busy painting bobbins for my September stock (As I have travels in 3 weeks - a lace teaching trip to Tasmania/Melbourne and also the congress in Japan in July) I need to "get ahead"!
I got a Mini Marudai in the post yesterday - ordered from a place in Queensland and also a new book on Kumihimo braiding - I have just got the Marudai put together and loaded with the 'Tama" (bobbins) and I have started a braid to carry on with at the Lace day which I am going to tomorrow (I don't have any lace underway at the mo!) I have also nearly finished another crazy patchwork belt in Navy blues, rust/orange and creams to match my clothing which I intend to take to Japan for the Congress! I just have to hand sew the binding... also taking that to the lace day tomorrow too... No peace for the wicked bwah hahahahaha! LOL! :-D
