mondo-ing in Melbourne...


One of the things that I have been really missing since my move to Melbourne 3 weeks ago is being able to work alongside Clare and Mum. When Mum (Sue) first moved to Dubai a couple of years ago, we had to work out how she would work remotely, and we managed that quite well. When I announced my move to Melbourne, we wondered how we would deal with the extra challenge of being in three different places. So far, so good! I have set up a work area at one end of the kid's playroom, and the familiarity of cutting and stitching is helping to make me feel at home. I am, however, really missing having company while working - we have always kept up a constant chat while mondo-ing, and the cups of coffee aren't so enjoyable when you are on your own. We come up with most of our new work while bouncing ideas off each other ... the phone companies are going to make a huge profit from us this financial year!!!

Hi Shelley. That pile of butterflies are waiting to be sewn into our vintage artworks. We have such fun arranging all the colours and seeing the finished product - different every time!

Ha-ha. Was just popping in with the 'Skipe' suggestion myself. I sure hope that you find a satisfying alternative. Your great attitude has got to be a big plus.
