What a highlight!!

Thank you 
Thank you 
and one more humble
Thank you !

This is now five years and 320 posts later.
Benice and I really enjoyed our journey.
We learned, laughed, cried, painted, planned
and packed a lot.
And we stitched a few things together.

Things change and life moves in different directions
so today will be my last post on this blog.

Benice will still be creating, sewing and writing

I will still be blogging, sharing, teaching and creating.
So now I want to introduce you to my new blog.

As with many things, the grey ladder has a story.
My Grandfather made this ladder over 90 years ago.
He made it out of Bamboo and wood.
He used it a lot and when he passed away it was
 left unused and in storage for a long time.
When we built my studio I knew I wanted this ladder
to hang from the roof.
So now it is in its new place and every one that visits the studio
notices it. So what better name for my studio than
The Grey Ladder.

Fabric Collage Book Covers

Last week Thursday we made book covers.
I send the girls an image of what my book cover looked like
and for the class they also brought along small elements
that they wanted to use on their fabric collage.

This collage cover was made by Kim.
I like the way that she embroidered over the 
"Handmade by" sign. 

This one  was made by Esther.
Look at the small pin and the beads that she used
and the lace to cover the top.

This one was made by Gail. She will use the green dotted fabric
to make the cover of the book and then use this collage as the the front cover.
We all enjoyed the class.
Thanks Girls!

Tomorrow is our Market Day.
This is the link to the Facebook page.

Shrink Plastic

A friend of mine contacted me and said that she 
sells the Lucky Squirrell shrink plastic brand 
and that she has stock at the moment!
Please feel free to contact her at:

her name is Niki.

We are preparing for a house market on Saturday
and I am changing the name of my 
business, so it is new 
branding and business cards !!

I still need to work on it a bit.
Keep well !
