My creative space today has seen me travelling all over the Northern Rivers in a mad quest for turquoise felt. I am just finishing off some name banners for three lucky little kidlings ready to be sent off tomorrow, and the one colour missing from my 'pallette' was damn turquoise.
You would have thunk that Spotlight would have it (or would you, they never seem to re-order anything!!) But no, I tried every $2 shop, and every haby type shop in Lismore. I think I became quite deranged. I began accosting people I knew without any pre-emptive "Hello, how are you" etc., and blurting out, (I may have screamed manically) "Have you got any turquoise felt!!" Did I shake them by the shoulders? I have no idea, everything is a blank.
