Past and Present

So, where has the time gone since we returned from India?!!  My days have been 
full, but only this week has it been textile related - more on that later.

My ipad is both fascinating and sometimes infuriating!  Guess there is still a lot 
of finding out to do!  

When staying in Castle Bijapur in the depths of the Rajasthan country side I
found something I 'needed".   Eating out, under the stars, and there were many 
of them, a fellow guest viewed the night sky through his phone.   There were the 
planets and constellations mapped above our heads.   And, so, dear reader, 
I purchased an iPad!

This wonderous devise has lurked on shelves for years.    Made up of
two discs of plastic, you can move the upper disc to select the time
and date.  So good, so far.   Next up, hold it above your head and
determine what is in the sky above.  It never really worked for me!

But just look at this - and if you look carefully you will have a
glimpse of my bangles and rings!

Truly amazing, now I know what's out there for sure, even
during the day!    I did let my son Nic have a play yesterday.
Being a Star Wars fan, it was difficult to wrest it out of his hand.

I have spent most of this week dyeing thread - lots of it,
and preparing for the Indian Bazaar which opens tomorrow,
for one day only.   Check out post on 24 October for details.
Apart from the Bazaar, Lis will be bring her collection of
old Indian textiles, I'll have my Emporium and we have
four guest sellers.  Silver jewelry, fabulous papier mache
bowls, lino prints and other yummy things.

Now I might just have to check out the night sky.

It certainly is, and a great diversion from what I should be doing!
