Interesting Australian Store Selling Silk Thread

Ok i know i don't post embroidery thread links in here and i know i said i was busy working... but i have found a great little store in melbourne (aussie) that is selling silk threads (look under products). I haven't tried them but the pictures look totally beautiful!! They only do wholesale though (although whole sale seems to be a box of 9)

anyway have a look if you are interested.

anyway back to work.

Medieval painting example

Good morning everyone.

Whilst i have exams this weekend (yes this weekend) and a 40% assignment due Monday and havn't done anything creative. I would like to show you a link from someone who has. I read a Blog called Medieval Arts and Crafts where the Author is creating a replica paining of a lat 15th Century woman. It is one of my favorite paintings.

byeee for now, back much more religiously in a couple of days. Then i can get stuck back into my work. I have now technically finished the theory part of my degree. Now just down to prac prac and prac.... (and the exams of course)
