holiday in America!

We got back from Arizona on Saturday after having a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones. I have got some yummy products from Art Glitter to try out. I made this piece using some of their fusible fantasy fibres in the background fabric which is layers of organza on felt, The diacroic glass cabuchon was made by Paula Radka a glass artist I met in LA. It was the shape of the glass that gave me the idea for making it into the bracelet. I celebrated my birthday watching the sunset at the Airport lookout in Sedona and drinking champagne!!!! Then back to our villa for an meal and birthday cake.

facebook !!!

I have just disovered face book and have now joined that community. It is great finding new family members and old friends.
This picture is one of my latest bags made using my embellisher. I have added a beetle to it. Only another three days to go before heading off to Sedona.

Coughs and colds!!!!!

UGH, I was supposed to be going to Exeter for the AGM of the West Country Embroiderers today but I have a nasty cough and cold so decided to stay indoors! Counting down now until next friday (9th) when we fly out to Arizona. Can't wait and so looking forward to visiting all the lovely folks at Art Glitter Institute in Cottonwood. Have been looking after Fraser for two afternoons this week. We went to the park to feed the ducks yesterday. It is lovely to be able to spend time with him so the embroidery just has to wait. I got an exciting parcel from America for glass artist Paula Radka this week. She has sent me some diachroic glass to make some more brooches with and I can hardly wait to get started.
