I had a wonderful holiday. France Germany and then the wonderful cruise in Alaska. I had the best time. But on coming home I ended up tearing a couple of ligaments in my back by doing the simple of things. I bent down to pull a weed from between the pavers. Yep gardening will get you every time. Its been a month now and still it hasnt healed. It may take another month before it comes right and only if I rest. .....Doh!....sigh Eventually I will put holiday shots up but my back just will not allow me enough time on the computer to get it done at the moment. At the moment I am making Ducks. My next online show will be 'The Teddybear and critters 2011 Valentine show'. I also am planning critters for competition. My Vampire Duck 'Roberto Patisini receing an award for outstanding achievement in design and workmanship.
these are just few of the pics I took on my trip to Singapore.The top left is a pergola on a walk over in China town. Top right is on Sentosa Island, this is where people come to swim and sunbath on the beach.. 2nd left is the fountain at Suntec City. You walk around it three times while drapping your fingers in its waters and make a wish. It was lots of fun to walk out there but it was a bugger to find.Suntec City is made up of 5 business towers with the fountain central. But we had to walk a confusing maze to get there. 2nd right is the huge, massive development on Sentosa Island. Hotels, fun park, casino just to name a few of the attractions that it will house. It is suppose to be finished in 2010. 3rd left are my friends on the Sky Tower on Sentosa Island. It is a donut shape contraption which glides up a central pole to give you some spectacular views over the sea and Singapore city. 3rd right is one such view from the Skytower.
I wish to say thankyou to the other bloggers who have bestowed upon me blogging awards. I am rather chuffed by your sweet thoughts. I would accept them and display them if I knew how. So thankyou! I appreciate the kindness.
A very dear friend of mine is having a birthday soon and as paper glue and I dont get along all that well I thought I would do something different. I gather this will be a bit of a surprise for her. I made her card out of fabric. I wired the edges and filled it in with beads so it could stand. I did think of lining it with card board but decided not to.
I enjoy creating my 'Teddy Style platypus'= PUDDLES from a variety of materials.
I love using Sassy mini fabrics and my all time favourite fabric is the Japanese silk. I totally and absolutely adore it. The many pile lengths and its ability to be dyed leaves it self open to my creative flow.
