we have had a fairly relaxed weekend that seems to have vanished in a puff of smoke.
yesterday kind dog and i went to the australian quilt convention and bought new cutting mats (hurrah!) although we got a bit carried away at the intense bargamoniousness of the cutting mats and ended up buying the ginormous size, which then had to be toted home by kind dog who rigged up an ingenious harness out of 2 metre lengths of cotton scrim (bought for the purpose, although with an eye to future use)
in news from the studio, these fellows arrived on friday and have spent the weekend sunning themselves in the backyard and hopefully losing their slightly musty smell. when they are fresher they can come into the studio and bunk in with the possum skin. (they're ex-hat factory bunny skins i bought on ebay)
