We went shopping for new computers today, too many to choose from made it so confusing. By the end of the day we think we know what we want – just have to find the right one for the job – just as long as it is faster than what we have now. Sometimes, when I turn on this machine, I have time to make a cuppa while it starts up.
This week has brought some interesting magazines.
Embellish magazine has a very interesting article on Moroccan textiles, and techniques for shibori on polyester which I must try. Also, a very late edition of Down Under Textiles has finally arrived –
which has a 4-page article on Rita Summers, a Tasmanian textile artist, and her natural dyeing techniques – well done Rita.
Out in the garden, the oriental lilies are beginning to open.
Here they are surrounded by the pink aqualegia (spelling?), yellow poppies, red geranium, and blue forget-me-nots, making a colourful splash in the sunshine.
Now, back to the sewing machine, to get some more quilting done.
