Self Care

Dear Alice,

Congratulations on finishing all of your course work for your couples therapy paper, it was complicated but you got there in the end…..

Please accept this gift to self, a packet of beautiful hand-dyed silk that is almost too beautiful to use….

The pressure has eased off you at polytech and it is time for you to explore new mediums of self-expression such as felting which you have been wanting to try for years…..

So have fun!

    Excellent! You made me laugh out loud! Wish I’d been given such wonderful gifts at the end of my courses………….. ****makes mental note to self – buy something nice at end of present rather dreary course!!****

    oooh!! doo doo! have fun, felting is awesome!! beautiful wool roving, silks, silk hankies….oooooHHH textural heaven.
    Hey, you’re in touch with the sheepses…any ideas on where you’d go to buy a raw fleece? I am after organicly raised sheepses preferably, but I can’t seem to find any here in oz unless I am buying small feling quantities (I want more) or large bale quantities (I want less)
    That is such a beautiful colour blend. Ashford tops are my fav for delicate felting. They felt soooo beautifully.


  14. What better way to motivate than the promise of a reward like that. Gorgeous.

  15. MeredithJean says:

    Oh YES!!!!
    Time to take pleasure indeed, because the sweat has been spent and you have achieved your latest paper. Oh Alice enjoy enjoy enjoy. Your photos of the silk are beautiful, good camera mastery girl, great capture of lustrous gleam, yes SO beautiful.
    It’s all very positive, so happy for you.
    Today you have wings xxx
