My best friend Julie sent her feather talisman by post with no tracking on January 7th from just 5 hours up the coast, it’s languishing somewhere between here and there so this is a call out for lots of white light beamed in to get it here safe and sound! namaste

the cloud of tulle buttoned on in a detachable and almost elegant way
Sharon People’s lace heart stitched into place forming the bridge to the cloud of tulle
pennants, oddments, cloud of tulle and starry gloves settling in

getting there!
The online catalogue is sorted, just waiting for the professional photographs to be taken in the gallery on the 28th at 10am & inserted on the 1st to go live for the preview on March 2nd. The opening is on the 3rd in 4 weeks, we will take it up to the gallery to install on the 25th

The photoshoot of all the pennants, talismans and oddments for the online catalogue went well with a lot of help from Old Man Crow and his iPhone after a disastrous first day using a fancy DSLR with all the bells and whistles that I had no idea how to operate in the hope that if I just put it on auto it would do all the work, it didn’t…
the armature fit out the front door with all the talismans wrapped with tissue paper
for the two minute walk up to the gallery and safely back
good to have a go before the install date on February 25th
just working steadily each day with the production schedule (a handy tool that helps keep my eye on the ball)
all the pennants waiting with the cloud of tulle to be hung and suspended
it’s time to get the bit between the teeth, put the head down and go, see you out the other side!

Maggie Brown Something Old, Something New
I’ve completed the pennant – based on the wedding dress aspect actually – I’ve knitted it in silk so it can be a silk wedding dress (or part thereof) and worked on the something old & borrowed (the dress), something new (the knitting) and something blue (the colour of the silk). Also worked in cobweb weight silk. The cobweb weight shetland yarn is what they use for the wedding ring shawls that (theoretically) are so fine they can be pulled through a wedding ring although I have made one in the past and it would need to be a man’s ring to be able to get it through.

PS There is one stray talisman sent last week from up the coast that needs to arrive today for the photoshoot up at Artsite tomorrow and Wednesday, beaming white light for it to show up in time!
