Tour de Gocco

We have finally decided on connecting to gas....we now just have to wait for the connection....2 weeks without hot water, it's surprising how well we have adapted - having a dishwasher helps! I must admit that I'm keen to have a long soak in the bath when we go up to Launceston this weekend.

I'm in the middle of a huge cook-up so we can take up some frozen meals for our friends who have just had a baby, a fair swap for getting a few newborn babe cuddles. I'm also madly preparing gifts for the little tacker....

I stenciled the dinosaur on last night...just waiting for it to dry so I can wrap it up. I got out the gocco last night (finally!) after being inspired by kate's efforts. What I didn't count on was how long that little bit of ink would last just kept going, and going, and goooooing! All of this with the Tour de France & Tim keeping me company. The gocco outlasted Tim & in the end I just scrapped the ink off so I could get to bed. What to do with my trial prints.... bugs & strawberries, perhaps I should have thought more about that combination.

I'm looking forward to getting some larger screens & printing some fabric.

I also managed to make a couple of pencil rolls, one for Max from a vintage linen tablecloth & one for me - the patchwork version from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.
