Pretty Things

Happy New Year. We’re well into it now and resolutions should be well and truly broken… I know mine is but I’ll persevere. My sister found me this beautiful cup and saucer at Teaopia (where I’ve drunk a few Rooibos latte’s), it’s made to hold both the beverage and a sweetmeat….. there goes my effort to give up sugar! She know I like to take tea and a bicky up to my studio.
Polymer clay weaving!
Just a couple of weekends ago I had a Button Making Workshop with the Kingston Handloom Weavers and Spinners. Their home is currently in the Portsmouth Town Hall, a lovely old limestone building just two blocks from my studio so no gas expense there. We looked through the books I took over and found some instructions for weaving strips of clay so here is my effort. It might make a nice large pin, maybe a shawl pin.  The close proximity worked well when we were discussing purchasing a pasta maker or some clay and catching Michaels’ sales, or using the coupon in the flyer. Not everyone gets the flyer so I popped home and printed some off on the computer!
In a visit to the Spinners and Weaver’s sale in the Fall I saw some beautiful hand spun yarn that I reeeeally wanted. Missed it at the sale but managed to get hold of Beth Fisher who spun it. The photographs really don’t do the colours justice, it’s yummy!!! I love the little wound squiggles all the way through. I’ll save it to work into a wet felted collar….
So much yarn and so many things I want to knit (… and I need to make stock) … but it’s back to the paperwork!!!!
          Oh, and the DVD. I’m working on a DVD of how to work my buttonholes and facings. It’ll be ready for sale at the Spring seminars I’m at:
Mounds View, Minnesota   –    April 23 – 24  2010
Hamilton, Ontario    –    April 30 – May 1  2010

  7. Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

    In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

    Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
