Interesting Post, More Tyvek and Trip Tomorrow

Been a strange day really. Couldn't sleep (again) and got up at 5am, so it's been a long day! It was so hot today too, just like Summer! Had to remove my jacket which doesn't happen very often I can tell you - lol. Some of the day was taken up with a long visit to the park, tyvek experimentation, sewing for a bookmark swap and making up sandwiches for tomorrow's trip (see below). Oh yes, and ordering lots and lots of beading supplies online for my sister!! I managed to restrain myself and ordered only one packet of beads and some needles - aren't I a good girl?

Anyway, this morning this came...


and this... Both of these were free when I bought the Xpression Embellisher and I've just been waiting on their arrival.


Managed a few more tyvek experiments. This one was painted woven tyvek which was then stitched and heated with the gun. I like it but next time I will leave out the stitching I think.


Similar technique here, painted tyvek stitched and then cut up and heated. Like the colour a lot, but spent ages trying to pick out the stitching! Oh well...


More beads from tyvek and wrapped with wire. Not a great photo.

Tomorrow, we are all going here - the Crannog at Kenmore. I love this place, this will be the fifth time we have been and this time my sister and her lot are coming too, along with my mum (we've managed to indoctrinate her to the ways of the Crannog - this is her second visit!). I'm in danger of turning into a Crannog groupie lol. My kids love it too so it should be a good day out.

Your Tyvek experiments are great. I really must play with this stuff more.
Enjoy your trip looking forward to hearing about it.
Hugs, alis

You managed to get your photos to enlarge then. I love the 1st Tyvek sample, without stitching it looks a bit like old cobble stones.

Crannog?

An alien race?

A new breed of racing mouse?

An obscure Scottish cult based on not spending any money & making everything sound like an extract from Taggart?

What is Crannog? (answers with/without the postcard to....)

Just think, though, your comment statistics have been boosted by.... well, 4 more than I needed to use!

It's ok, enjoy the crannog & tell me about it after wards.... although if it's the strange cult, we might never hear from you again.....

Which would be a shame. Have fun!
