I have not managed to do any thing creative since Easter. Hopeful Sunday be spent at the sewing machine trying to make a bag with the silk paper I made at Easter

This is a picture of a journal cover done as a gift for Morgan when she left work to travel the world for a year.

I have been trying to add the signature to my blog but with little luck. It is on this posting but we will have to see what happens next posting.

We will have our neighbours back again this weekend. They bulldozed down their old wood and fibro home last July and received their keys last night for their new brick four by two home. Cushla will be in his element having two dogs he can hassle now.

I have painted a paper bag with black paint and then sprayed with Glitz Spritz. I intended to use Medieval Gold but in my last order from Dale she miss read the labels and sent Tumbleweed Sage instead of Purple Sage. Wonderful mistake as the colour is gorgeous on the black (the photo does not show the full effect) The bottle is nearly finished so I will have to order more but will have make sure she reads the label correctly!

The weekend was not greative at all. DH went to Perth to the rugby and returned with new supplies and a parcel from Angela but work has got in the way of having fun.

The flower from the Belladonna lily. The bulb was given to me by a fellow quilter a few years ago and this is the first year it has flowered.
