Temporary outage.

T n S is going on the road for three weeks. To visit fambly in SA, and to tour some of the area north of Perth and walk some wildflower trails.

On my return I will begin the history of a textile wrangler and how I trod the rocky road to quilting in straight lines.

Meantime these divine spring days are brought to you by coral-coloured Californian poppies, swathes of forget-me-nots, and a triumphant return to purrfume. Gucci is my destiny!

So.. a decision is made.

Hi, thanks to all of you who put a vote in. I can see my way a bit more clearly now. What I'm planning is a retrospective of my textile adventures (and those of you who have been recipients, I'm gonna demand photo ops very soon!). I'll put in some blurb about how and why I made things the way I did, and give you some insight into what I'm working on. It won't change the blog to an entirely textile-devoted site however.

I also think that I'll try to return to the original purpose of this blog, which was to post random thoughts and snorts on random happenings, events, ideas and reflections, as they occur to me. I expect it won't be at all political, probably a bit on the silly side, and perhaps more entertaining for the reader.

Meantime I am convalescing my way through lurgy #5 of the season, and the worst of the lot. Honest to goodness flu, with gasric, migraine and the classic 'run over by a bus' elements. Arg. It's ruining my social life and making me feel completely paranoid about ever going out again. Well, unless I don't breathe while I'm out.

I recall advising my daughter that when she went to Thailand, she'd be fine as long as she didn't breathe, touch anything, eat or drink anything, go anywhere or do anything. It seemed quite sensible to me.

She went anyway.
