Happy Birthday To Me...
and it has, indeed, been a happy day. I haven't done much of anything. Opened a couple of presents, drunk lots of coffee, chatted on the phone to friends and family, read a truly frivolous book, nibbled some very nice bitter chocolate; what more could a girl want?
The other thing I did today was to put stuff in envelopes to send to friends. I own Dijanne some black lutradur, which I've had for ages, and not got round to sending. And there's some promised fabric for friends, and the collaborative book going to Arashi... And then, there's the cloth in the picture, which is my starter piece for a surface design round robin that I'm taking part in on one of the lists I belong to. I think it'll be an interesting piece to work on...there's lots of empty space, just asking to be filled up with colour, texture and anything else anyone can think of! It is a cotton poplin, which takes dye like a dream. We're sending journals with the pieces, and I think it will be interesting to follow the development of the cloth as it goes round the group of five people.
