It didn't take too long for me to get back inside my head yesterday, as once again I'm feeling I don't have enough time to try out all the ideas I have. And I'm not physically tired. But I had to spend quite a bit of time washing more dishes and posts from Thursday night. Finally all done. But the oven looks like it could use some TLC...

Last night I felt the living room looked oh, so wrong, with all my work stuff out of the way. I was ready to resume work, or activities associated with textile or design, and I did, I looked through Ben's photographs choose ones to play with, finding interesting lines, motifs, trying to select pics that are different from what I normally select, but not in the living room.
I might try to contain my work in the stash/design room and downstairs for a while. Even though I know it won't last.

I've been meaning to show you the stamp on Lalla's Christmas card; a commemorative joint issue celebrating 45 years of diplomatic relations between Kuwait and Romania, and guess what?!
here they are, though I was hoping for multiple textile stamps, the Romania version, (the currency and the Arabic lettering being the difference.)
Lalla's father was the biggest philatelist I've known in my life, and by "knowing" I never met Mr Jones but since Dad has always been prolific in buying and using interesting Japanese stamps, we facilitated their exchanging stamps a couple of times. And this year she addressed the card in my maiden name. I'd like to think all this is pointing me in a new direction.
