Rub the teapots- and what will happen? I hope that 2008 will be happy safe and peaceful for all of you. I hope that it will bring good things for you and that your dreams may come true.

As for my kids and myself- well I certainly hope 2008 will be an improvement on 2007- because this last year has been the pits. On a work basis I will be preparing for my exhibition in Munich at Textil und Kunst and I had another play with the teapot lino-cut/transfer- this is getting more like I wanted them to look, although there will be all sorts of variations. In all likelihood I will not enter many exhibitions/competitions because my primary focus will be getting work ready for my exhibition. I will be travelling to Europe from the end of August, giving a class in Brugge for a group of textile travellers and then going onto Munich to teach there and then onto Val d'Argent and other places. I shall be in Europe until early October.Otherwise I will be her ein Australia and hoping to organise a few classes in Gellibrand.

I hope to build a house on the other block where the kids and I can live, but if all else fails I will have to find somewhere else to live.

i just love those teapots! i'm sure they will bring a delightful 2008. is this christine's quilt & textilkunst where you'll be exhibiting? i believe she always goes to val d'argent. not being a quilter, i've only heard her talk about it. but it's the place to go, how wonderful for you!
