Rust Pocket Book


page 3 of my rust pocket book - lots of stitching later - but I am pleased because it has that old rusty at the yacht club look. I am not sure why I stitched with a variegated thread though as by the time I attacked it with my heat gun, sprayed with Moonshadow Mist and rubbed with Shiva it didn't really matter..... I should have photographed it really as it is hard to see the texture.

The biggest excitement is the communication I have been having with my Moonshadow Mist manufacturer - I love the Starburst Stains but I don't like the daubers so she is making them with sprays and they are changing their name to Starburst Sprays - that's wonderful - what I do do is to use the tops from my used up Mists on the SS bottles. They have such wonderful colours and the very best part is that we are not paying for water to be sent around the world - we just add it at home.

Glory are playing down at the Perth Oval and I think from the noise that they are winning. Be a happy crowd tonight at the end of a very hot day.

Embellish Stitch Enrich on-line workshop starts tomorrow - I am looking forward to seeing what wonderful work they create. Ratty Tatty Papers starts on Wednesday but I am still playing with paper napkins - will have to stop tomorrow though.
