great post and a Welsh angel
enclosed in this card! Isnt it great - a machined ATC - fantastic work!
What a super lady!
Oh - and this super lady , that so often makes me laugh and keeps me amused when we chat, also has a wonderful husband who sings!
Emyr never moans when he comes in from choir and I am sitting there in his living room (virtually of course) :0)
It has been known that Mags and I are busy chatting about embroidery early in the morning and Emyr is eating his breakfast - but he never moans! I have been taken on virtual tours of their flat , shown the view and also sat on their kitchen table (virtually). I have been in Mags studio and in their living room ...........and even introduced to their neighbours and family!
What wonderful people ! Mags - aka Digital Gran and her amazing husband.........my life is richer for knowing you both! ...........and visiting at strange hours (virtually of course ;-)

And on a lovely sunny day like today it sits so pretty in between the garden workshed and our teeny tiny house.............
tagged on weird things
1 - I have worked in a graveyard both digging and filling in graves - it was usually me that went down into the grave to put up the shoring boards
2 - I worked as a gardener for the Bishop of Tewkesbury in the UK.
3 - I have busked in the centre of Cheltenham, UK- playing guitar and singing - I was barefoot. (it was for charity!)
4 - I have sung and played guitar in many pubs around the Cheltenham/Glos, UK area.
5 -In spite of living in Sweden I do not eat fish!
6 - I have two half sisters that I have never met, dont know where they live and dont even know their names, but I know they exist somewhere.
Off to do some more textile work!

Because it is good paper it need soaking before using - I usually soak mine overnight but a few hours will do. It needs to be soft and squidgy.
You dont need masses if you are just experimenting - a few good handfuls of shreddings in a bucket will make a good quantity to play with.
