No Anchors - Looking Out For New Ones.

Okay, I haven't installed many pieces of late and the reason why is really basic. I've gotten down to my last two bootlaces and my supplier has decided to charge me for them. Not a problem; I offered to pay in the first place when I asked about them. However, I haven't heard back from them since our phone conversation a few weeks ago. So, it looks like I'll have to look around for another supplier.

Art Stores: here I come! I may pay through the nose, but it's going to be absolutely worth it! I need to get those swatches out on to the trees and the tags anchored in a permanent way somehow. And tying them on with cotton just doesn't work. So, for the next few weeks, I'll be looking at Bunnings and other art stores to see if I can get my hands on some other leather bootlace for a good price - not vinyl. It wears too easily; and people can just cut it off too easily as well.

So, here it is: my notice to say that things may slow down a little until I get my hands on some either bootlace offcuts at another supplier or some thin strips of leather from art stores that are long enough to be used for what I'm doing. Wish me luck - I know there's a supply out there waiting for me to get my hands on it!

Until my next post - which I hope will be soon - keep creating and keep knitting!
