a busy week....

We have had a very busy week but still no news of Fletcher. We are feeling very dejected and hope he has either found a good home or met a very quick end [not nice i know but i would hate to think of him suffering in this cold and nasty weather].



Last weekend we went to Melbourne with Lucy for her model horse show. We stayed at Beaumaris and had some lovely walks on the beach.The above pic was taken at Frankston, such lovely little sculptures on the foreshore.
We tripped into Ikea and Ziguzagu,a fantastic japanese warehouse.[Big thanks to Jacky for putting me onto it, it was wonderful, might be while before the credit card recovers!]
haha, both places could not be farther apart in style but i enjoyed them both!
I haven't taken pics of my purchases yet...next post :)

Anyhow amongst the all the wonderful nights out this week i have finally finished these atcs .
The lovely Margaret was a guest designer for June here and made these lovely atc pockets. I couldn't wait to have a go, mainly as i wanted use the cute little lanterns that i bought a little while ago. Ive lost the packaging so cant tell you who they are :(




The technique on the dresses is the string technique. The red is from my friend Les and i made the brown.[I never get it to work very well, its always a bit chunky.]
I am slowly getting around and visiting the other pocket atcs,the ones i have seen are just lovely.

and finally because i love seagulls, especially when they are fighting over chips :)

Oh wow wow wow for your amazing dress up ATC's!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so miffed I was ill for that month and never got to make any in time for the deadline. All the ones I've seen have been amazing too especially yours!

I'm so sorry you have had no news about Fletcher.

I got a bit scared when we were absolutely mobbed by seagulls trying to pinch our fish and chips one time we were at the seaside, plus the time a flying seagull decided to poop the most humungous bird doo on my head that ran down my glasses was disgusting in my hair... so seagulls stretch my love of birds to the very limits I'm afraid :-)
