Firstly I am sorry I have had to switch on comment moderation - I am getting tired of one particular commenter who just leaves rows of dots - I get several comments like this with each post I write and I am tired of deleting them.
To answer your question Jensters - re the silk carrier rods - I dye my own and then peel them apart - usually get 5 or 6 layers as I have been doing this for years - they are then soft. Hope that helps.
OK - so I am off to NY this week but must give away the giveaway :-) for post number 600
There were 18 comments on the relevant blog, using a random number generator the lucky winning number is number 8 - that's Kate North. Kate I will send you one of my pocket bags - hope you like the colour.
See you all later this month!
(In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York)
