Mischief managed  
Had a knock on the door to day. Staggered from bed with my hair birdsnesty and a J shirt preserving my dignity (I am coming down with a cold and had spent the morning in bed), I peered out from behind the door to see a familiar face.

My friend and his partner have moved in next door! Hurrah!

In other news, the Monster kitten continues to pick up her favourite toys and bring them to my feet where she drops them and looks up at me with a hopeful expression until I toss them about for her to chase. I knew that letting her watch Lassie Come Home was a mistake.

Back to the fest writing!!

ETA: Leochi drew her! It's wonderful!

Purely academic, I am afraid. I will be dressed Very Sensibly. And yes, gold spangles, which I picked up in Adelaide; I'm going to do a bulk order from Canada the next time I am flush. Have you ever used the great Canadian goldwork supplies shop? Might be a good source for the Opus Anglicanum gold ...

What type of silk do you use, by the way?

No, I've never used the Canadian gang - now I'm wondering if you pointed me there earlier and I just forgot, because it does sound familiar. Where are they, again?

I only have silk embroidery floss that I'm not entirely happy with; it's spun (I haven't ever found any reeled), and the twist is too tight so I don't get that completely smooth look. If you know of any good online places that have a shiny, loosely spun floss I'd be very interested! Although I probably won't ever have a billion millon hours to spend on any decent piece of OA, I'd like to know that I just _have_ the supplies, you know? :)
