Thanks to all who have commented on my current work - the rust dyeing.
The bit of fun - I have just found this link on Gail P's blog and if you are like me - enjoy old school music you may like to watch this video.
Barter/Exchange - yesterday whilst doing the distraction technique of sorting out the studio again I came across a box of threads which I never use as they are really meant for edging using an overlocker. I don't have an overlocker, but I had bought them last year at a garage sale, because the man who sold them said that they would work fine through my sewing machine. Well they do if you have a large eyed needle or use them in the bobbin, as they do shred a little. I know I will never use them again - So if you are the proud owner of an overlocker or fancy trying them I am happy to swap with you. There are 7 light blue, 2 darker blue, 2 red, 1 green and 1 pink up for exchange. (The gold has already been snapped up). They are large cones , as can be seen by the coffee mug photo for scale - some labelled 5000 metres, some 7500 metres and one of the darker blues has been used so has less. Email me if you are interested.
