this & that...

I've been a bit slack with the blog lately.....just busy - had family members not well, been to Adelaide, had a sore throat etc. So I just thought I'd ramble a little about this & that.

Spent yesterday playing with some beads....made three necklaces. Also listed something new:

forever forget-me-knot

Hopefully there will be some nice weather next week & I'll be able to list a couple more new pieces.

My Melbourne trip is getting really close, really fast...accommodation is booked, just have to organise the flight, some workshop materials & perhaps a catch-up with some DUST-er's :)
I'm equal parts excited & nervous...never flown, or been to Melbourne before & I'm going on my own....usually I travel with family.

I'll have a couple of free days after the workshops & I need to work out what I want to see, any suggestions?

feathers & drops...

The other day I finally did something I've been meaning to do for ages....I took a couple of gorgeous peacock feathers & a dropper outside to take some macro photos. A friend of a friend has peacocks & we were given some feathers.

Except for the second photo, all of these were taken on the same feather....I just used the back for the first & third shots. I took a whole heap (not surprising really) & have already uploaded one, two, three to flickr :)

New bag :)

My gorgeous clutch arrived today from Penny of PocketCarnival. This the last of my DUST cij goodies...I'm really happy they've all arrived, but kinda sad there's nothing else coming.

This too was beautifully packaged....I'm blaming mum & dad for my lack of photos of the wrapping, they wanted me to open it so they could see what I'd bought. It's been fun having so many packages arrive, normally I don't get many but I had three on friday & two this morning (seed beads in the other one).

Yay, presents for me :)

I bought myself some goodies during the DUST christmas in july sale.

a 'Colours of the Earth' scarf from rainbowrevolution

a hemp jersey loop scarf, also from rainbowrevolution

a gorgeous hair comb from realisationcreations

& a cute notebook (& some lovely gift tags) from littlemoandfriends

I wish I'd been a bit more patient & taken some photos of the lovely packages...but I wanted to get to my goodies :)

I have one more package on it's way...I'll blog about that when it arrives :)
