Counting Down

I forgot to show you my latest Charity shop (thrift/Op shop) find yesterday. I found this beautiful jacket several weeks ago and it cost just £3.99 (4 euros, 6$). The label is Mayhem and I've managed to track down their website so I'm going to send them a pic and see if they can give me any information, like, who made it?
The colours a bit off, it's not quite so orangey. It looks hand knitted and it's very weighty so it will be wonderful to wear on chilly Spring days. I originally bought it with a view to chopping it up to needle felt but found it fitted when I got it home so I shall enjoy it instead!

Have you remembered Susan Lenz's mammoth undertaking to stage an exhibition of artwork made by bloggers around the world and all received from swaps with her own work? The exhibition is in its final stages of preparation and Susan has nearly finished hanging all the exhibits which have come from swaps of ATCs and Postcards and from invited artists like Purplemissus and many others. You really must have a look here at the amazing exhibition that is opening this week on 8 January in Columbia South Carolina. If only I could be there. Susan is an amazing lady with such vision and drive and I can't tell you how moved I am to see a postcard of mine on the wall, in an exhibition way across the Atlantic surrounded by the work of so many talented artists and fellow bloggers. I wish Susan every, every success with this amazing undertaking. Make sure you go and have a look.

What a fabulous jacket. There is a "Mayhem" shop in Cambridge but I don't know much about them.

I am so thrilled to have been even a small part of CyberFyber, I can't even tell you. How cool!

Great jacket. My mother volunteers one morning a week at a charity shop here and comes home with all kinds of wonderful stuff. Pretty savvy shopping, I'd say.

Congratulations on the cyber fiber exhibition. I was going to send an ATC for a swap. Am I too late? I'm annoyed with myself that I somehow missed it all.
