new - inspiration packs
shades of grey
my favourite ashes of roses and grey
rose & wine
I have been dyeing lots of lace, linens, silks, organza, crochet trims, old curtain tape and ribbons to create little packs of inspiration for embellishment, scrapbooking, applique etc. It has actually taken me quite a while to sort, iron (I know I don't 'do' ironing normally) arrange a complimentary colour palette that I am happy with for each little collection of fragments. I have been working on a range of necklaces, dip dyed and very delicate - sneak preview below.....
faded pinks, browns and greys (yes I know it's those colours again)
Next task is a trip to the post office with a mock up pack to get it weighed. I got a template from the post office which has the appropriate slots to identify the method you can send your parcel depending upon the size and wouldn't you know it - the pack will not fit through the letter slot (you would be hard pushed to get a thick piece of paper through this). So as not to overcharge folks, I am doing a dummy run with said finished pack, oh and then there is sending abroad!!!!!!!
I look forward to your comments.... until next time I will leave you with a little updated picture of our little treasure Thomas...
