I have been joining in some swaps on a textiles challenge yahoo group, 1 arch per month. This is the arch I received from Anni for Sept. Just love the flowers! Thanks Anni! The theme I stipulated was garden, but other than that anything goes. Isn't this a neat garden scene? I now have 7 garden arches, and think perhaps I should make a cover and make them into a book?
Had these two pics on the computer to show you. This is Fox Glacier on the West Coast of the South Island. It is awesome! Really! While I stood there the clouds parted and I got to see the tops of the peaks.
This is the face of the glacier. It's amazing to see just how far this glacier has receded up the valley. I wonder if my grand kids or great grand kids will ever get to see this? If you look carefully at the bottom left of the photo you will see a man standing. Just to give you some idea of size.
Well not much happening today, it's a wet day and we've had 38mm of rain during the night and today so far. I zoomed into the supermarket at lunchtime and there was surface flooding everywhere, and the streams and rivers were swollen. We have also had 2 power cuts today.
To: Leanne, Margaret, Fannie and Sherry, thank you ladies for your lovely positive comments about my charms. I don't think jewellery making is really my "cup of tea" but they were fun to make, and as embellishments they would be very useful!
Margaret, I used Opals Embossing crystals, clear, which I melted and reapplied several times. I have actually got a bottle of Diamond Glaze, which I intend to use at some stage for charms or embellishments of some description!
Well hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
