macro 5 of 30: cockroaches in a beer bottle

No crafting today: we just got back from the Glasshouse Mountains. We stayed with a friend who lives just at the foot of Mt Tibrogargan - awesome views.

This photo was taken on our honeymoon in Vanuatu. We had a lovely time, honest - and this was actually our favourite place. But primitive enough that if you leave the dregs in your beer bottle overnight, you will wake up to the scurrying of cockroaches. The snorkelling was excellent though!

Oh, and for the record the Christmas quilt was very well received.

I like the green bottle view though. :)

Oh about the eyelet setter, yes it will make your life easier. If you actually use eyelets&snaps, you will appreciate this tool. It does a solid job, and it's so effortless and quiet. The punch and setter are in one tool, so it's also compact. I don't think I'll ever use my hammer and the other stuff again.

I haven't tried it yet, but it does leather, tin, chipboard, and fabric. Not bad, huh? :)
