Another year older, and more junk-age accumulates in my trunk-age!
The oppy has been very kind to me, love these two wooden dolls,
crudely hand painted in vibrant colours - got to be happy with that.
plus some fabric ...
I got more than the usual ambivalence from Big D when I showed him the above,
I got a scrunched up nose, and something about a 'Mu-Mu'.
I like it.
This one is quite amazing in the flesh, really light weight cotton. And I love this atomic bark cloth, reminds me of little beach-huts.
Cute colours in this one, and very big, 4 meters.
And, to redeem himself, he bought me this book for my Birthday.
'Textile Designers At The cutting Edge' Mainly European Designers, though Publisher Textiles get a couple of pages.
It's a yummy book, full of amazing textiles, that I'd love to own.
I think my trunk runneth over.
