mail, and a bit of business

First, the children's loom, for Dani. With my left thumb for scale. And yes, that's a dirty big crack (that will get some google visitors I expect) right in the middle. It snapped one day when No. 1 was weaving. I was in the shower (more google visitors. Welcome! Pull up a chair! But it's not what you think ... ) and he held it up to me through the shower screen, lower lip trembling. Some of Daddy's special highly toxic wood glue was applied, and it's still going strong several months later.

In other news ... look what arrived in the mail a couple of days ago!

I was one of the lucky ones to receive a port2port postcard from mav and arc's first letterpress adventure. I didn't actually know what a letterpress was, but now I have a better idea. I love it. Thank you girls.

I was a bit peeved at Australia Post for the shoddy condition it arrived in however.

But I still love it! How wonderful is this blogging community?!

Came here looking for a dirty big crack. Har har.

Love your Google visitor comments. I didn't realise the name of my blog was actually a porno film (and the home page of a lovely labrador dog), until I Googled myself.

So I left the name there in the hope I might convert some of my Google visitors to sewing.

The dog was amused when I told her, too.

thank you for the shout out. *blushes*, flattered.

Thank you Suse! Perhaps I could actually make one of these myself? I've never done weaving but the result your boys got has left me very interested. Years ago in Vietnam I was so amazed by the intricate work the indigenous mountain villagers achieved and now you have spurned my interest again. Thanks!
