I was holding off on posting for my final page, but I suspect that it's easier to post three I have right now.  My incredibly loose theme was India/Indian dance/Hinduis/Hindu festivals.   Grin

So, with no more ado, my pages!

Thank you ladies!

Amoxicillin

I love that you've called this after your drugs.  Even if I am allergic to Amoxicillin.

It's from Slappersire and is amazing Tongue

My theme was a quote by Albert Einstein:
"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious"

Hurrah!  I'm so glad you liked it, I've only ever swapped chunky pages with friends before.

You also gave me the opportunity to dig into my pile of science/Physics stuff and use one of my favourite poems, so thankyou!  The little drawing on the slate is a representation of the quark structure of a neutron and the background is tracks left behind after a collision event in (I think) LINAC at CERN.  But it might be a different accelerator.

this one completely amazed me

Another hurrah!  I actually found the black and white photos in the attic of my new house when I cleared it up for flooring.  They're wonderful, I even have a set of wedding ones.   Smiley

I've received one page so far and it's beautiful.  I'll post it later on today when I find my camera.  I'm really looking forward to all my other pages turning up!

I can't decide whether mine are ready to send out yet or not!  They look good, I'm just worried they're not chunky enough.   Sad

I'm going to call in crafting friends over the weekend to give me their opinions.

I had a huge splurge last night and managed to get three of my pages finished!  Hopefully I'll finish the final one before the weekend and mail them all out.

Well I've got my pages cut out and painted, now I just need to find the time to properly embellish them.  Roll on the Easter holidays!  Apparently trying to fit making chunky pages into my lessons isn't a good plan.....

This really cheered me up after a rotten week at work.  I shall play with paints and stuff tomorrow.

I had another go at this last night, only doing the Bowmont Braf fleece as it was quite small.  I picked all the tips open and shook it all out, what a difference!  So much nicer and cleaner this time.  I'm letting it dry, then I'll give it another inspection before deciding if I'm done.  Think it should be though.

Thank you!

mullerslanefarm Bowmont Braf was somethin I picked up at Woolfest 2008, a weekend ago, it's been bred in Wales, just over the border from me.  The blurb from Woolfestsays: Bowmont Braf is a new 100% luxury Welsh wool, developed in the hills of Wales, producing a soft, lofty luxury wool not available anywhere else.  It is suitable for felting, dyeing, spinning & knitting with a  range of colours & patterns.

They had a couple of grab bags on the stall, so I thought I'd get a sample as it was very cheap, plus a small enough amount to easily handle.  So far it's gorgeous, lovely and soft with nice crimpy bits.  The website is here http://www.bowmontbraf.co.uk/ if you want a look.

mooshie from what I understand alpaca doesn't produce lanaolin, which is why it's so popular for people with allergies, which means that all you need to worry about is drit, rather than grease.  Hope that's helpful.  And also that it's correct!
