Yippee! I got my first ever trade from a swap partner in America today! I am trading three bottlecap pincushions with three ladies in America and will receive three back (pincushions, not ladies!).
This pretty pink cushion wrapped in a piece of what I think is a vintage print material, is from Gail who lives in New Jersey. This parcel came all the way from America in less time than it took for Gina's parcel to travel about 70 miles in this country!
My studio is now looking rather different with its insulated ceiling. The builders finished tonight and I now need to emulsion the plasterboard before I put all my "junk" back in. My DH has offered to do it for me at the weekend. Hmmmm! Tempting offer! We shall see........I could do with getting it done so that I can sort myself out but I'm not sure if my joints will stand up to it. I suggested (jokingly) to the builder that I would throw some paint up. That gave rise to all sorts of mental images of the possible finished effect. It wouldn't be out of place in an art room, after all, would it?. Just a shame it would go all over my books and equipment. Oh well, bring on the paint roller and a step ladder! (Good excuse for a trip to B&Q, anyway. I love looking for art possibilities in that store).
