Hi Christine

Thank you for your unique and unusual MA card which arrived today.  I just love the combination of sewing and photography.  I sew also but have not combined it with art. I also flooded with cyclone Carlos, but unlike you had water almost but not in my house.  I hope your new sewing room is finished and fun to be in.   I experienced a horrendous thunder storm a couple of hours ago.  I think my house was struck as the noise was deafening, power went off and my phone and tv were destroyed.  More time for art!  It is still pouring which means my sat dish internet connection will die soon.  Thanks again for your lovely card.

Thanks for the card Jennifer - it was 'cool'!!!

Helen - thanks for your compliments about my card - it was an actual photo of - would you believe - American cheerleaders here in Oz at a local grid iron game about 12-14 years ago - so I guess it's almost retro!  Not sure iftime would allow me to get something ready for your exhibition - leaving for OS in a couple of months & have lots on my plate - Good Luck with it all.

Jenny, They're yours! I saw them on the rotating slideshow and was in awe. They are beautiful. So light and delicate. Well done.

G'day ladies??? Am I right, everybody here is a lady?  I live in Sydney but I'm American and will be going back there but in the mean time, can I join?

Now we also have someone in the US! Not getting very far with Australia Post magazine - It may not exist anymore but will keep trying.

Jenny - you are busy!   The flood is gone - I am getting a new sewing studio - it is up to the painting stage & then I will be able to produce more work when I know where all my stuff is & what I have left.  I am looking forward to having space to work again.  My 'flood art' postcards where born out of the necessity to do something creative but I have nowhere to spread out - so getting a little frustrated with it all. 

That's my woes - we are a spread out lot - we just need someone from WA & SA & ACT & we are Australia wide!!!!
