Thanks for popping in. Another great day in Prepland. Even got to pottery today, for a very cool session on the “slate vase”. More will be revealed…
But to the prep. It’s a bauble thing from 2-4pm on Sunday. Very beautiful stencil set of mini baubles. So I decided, in the spirit of Christmas, we need a branch to hang our samples from. Wasted an age looking for the secateurs (aka pruning scissors), then laboriously cut a branch off the yew tree with the kitchen scissors, to see if that would work.
First thing I asked when Dave came home was, “Do you know where the secateurs are? I need to cut a branch off for the TV display on Sunday”
Dave: “The secateurs are in the porch, but this,” he said, pointing to the by now wilted yew branch in the slate vase, “looks nice.”
Barb: “No, no good. Yew’s floppy”
Dave: “That’s a bit strong. No need to rub it in!”
Ooh he’s quick, that Dave.
Tomorrow, Tina is heading up the Pergamano show at 8am, so I do hope you can join her. She was setting up the counter this evening, but will be there at the crack of sparrows tomorrow, so it would be great if you can cheer her on. She is using a superb set of Snowflake Duets, which are astoundingly clever and effective. She designed these herself. I don’t think anybody can show these plates off better than Tina. When you see the artwork that she produces with these duets, you will be astounded. I certainly was.
Tina also requested that we showcase these multi-needle tools, so I am looking forward to see what she is going to teach us with these, too.
And then of course, there are her ground breaking perforating borders. Just sit back and let Tina walk you through this system. It is epic. It was Tina who had the idea to drill pattern plates, and this is where the perforating journey begins…
Yes, do join Tina tomorrow on Hochanda, at 8am , 12 noon and 3pm.
