Yep, after a few nice mild, "wow isn't it great to be out in the sunshine" days, the hot weather has arrived and with it a general lassitude, nay, more of a torpor. I don't do well in hot weather and my creative juices dry up. Consequently I do fairly mindless repetitive tasks (No, not housework) like knitting bunnies or filing my nails, and etegami is neglected. A big shame on me as I owe heaps of people cards in response to ones they have sent me.
A very nice surprise this week was a wee package full of lovely handmade goodies from a new etegami friend "Blorgie" who runs an interesting blog and who lives virtually next door in postcard-sending terms. The package contained a cloth decorated with Sashiko (Japanese stitching) and a delightful funky keychain dangly thingy. As you can see from the photo I couldn't wait to get my keys on that thing fast enough!
A big thank you Carolyn. Sometimes I think that I must have been through all my beetley, crawley reincarnations already as so many nice things happen to me and I am getting so much good Karma.

Time to dig out the fans and cool off so I can get down to some serious stuff!


  1. Hi, Origame,
    Wooow! Beatufiul!!
    ..and aren't we straight getting into summer?
    Cheers, Sadami

  2. Ohhhh I loved this post and was wondering just the other day whether you and Carolyn had yet met! What a glorious Blorgie creation she sent:) Wishing you cooler weather and continued creative good karma!
