I bought some fabric from Lara and while I was there I got to meet Pip and Kirsty and have a quick catch up with Angela . I am becoming a bit of an old hand at meeting bloggers- seriously these girls are just as regular and down to earth and welcoming and lovely as you would expect - or even more so. They were flat out !!! and they still stopped and hugged and chatted as if they had nothing else to do.
I do believe Mr Ric- Rac also made a purchase of the birthday-present-now-artfully-hiding-in-the-undies-drawer-variety. (ooh not that it is undies of course- it just that is where he hides everything!)
Kits are coming along - I am enjoying this far more than I thought I would, but gee there are lots of bits and pieces to organise.
Of course whilst I am busy "doing", my brain is busy dreaming and I have ideas and things just bursting to be done that I can't get to yet. The whole concept of screen printing has been haunting me since I did the first little birdcages. I can't stop thinking of things I could do if only I could make bigger screen prints. I have started googling screen printing kits.
Now before I jump headlong into another little craft adventure, I'd really appreciate any tips, info, tales of woe you guys can share about screen printing - I mean it would be dreadful if I went and got all the stuff and it was a total flop or a bit too involved and then I only ever used it once wouldn't it?
(Editors note: Please do not be fooled the mock sincerity of that last paragraph. If she gets to this point , no matter what you say she will have to try it for herself - she is obsessive I tell you . Trust me I've been here before (ahem)........... raffia hat making, candle making, mosaic, wire work, puppetry, dressmaking, felting, resin casting, needle felting..........
