Heading off on the weekend for a month - lucky gal eh.
I may be able to post here while away but if not the time will fly and be back soon.
If you have any news for the blog please email it thru and we can share -
good to be able to keep up with what is going on.
Russ will be posting out the next lot of magazines when they arrive - have addressed the envelopes, written dockets etc - but he's nervous!!!!
Am sure he'll be fine.  Cheers folks.

Isn't this superb!!!!  Sherry Goshon created this masterpiece recently for a planned retreat in Texas.

This took my fancy - and I wrote down the artist - but the magic untidy fairy has hidden my notes!
I'll post the artist etc when the notes turn up.  Tut tut.

Dear elinor has been at play again!  Her latest creations - Moth and Amethyst

Sadly this doesn't show up really well but had to show you the fabulous surprise that came in the mail last week - the fabric is Japanese - pure linen - and beautiful to the touch.
There is a little hanging owl in the front and some amazing Japanese buttons that seem to be fabric somehow covered in plastic.
A Panda card with a 3-D bookmark(!!!!) and a photo of a gypsy van, alluding to our new mobile acquisition. 
Thanks so much to you know who!!!!  Spoiled.

Thought at first these women were off to a Doll Conference - but see they were in New York at Senior Planet.  
Aren't they fabulous!!!!
'The Senior Planet Exploration Center, the country’s first technology-themed center for New Yorkers 60 and up, opened in January 2013 in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. The center hosts classes, workshops, programs, lectures and special events, offering older New Yorkers a comfortable space to learn, work and explore new ways to thrive in today’s digital world.'
