Halls Gap seen from the top of a big hill on an extremely windy day

Well I am home from teaching in the Grampians.
What fun it was

Met the lovely Teresa Dair and her husband Stephen
and got myself knitting again
after buying a couple of her books
and some wonderful linen yarn
I will show you results (or not)
when it is finished.

I spent a few days in Melbourne before and after

Bought a few presents including a glass muller
So I can begin to process my own pigment
Just like in Sandy Webster's book
Earthen Pigments as seen in the sidebar

I have recently signed up for this
Yes, Jude Hills wonderful What If Diaries
I am looking forward to lots of cozy stitiching by the fire
as winter settles in down here

I bought this Book
by Julie Daniluk
in my continuing search for a diet
that works for me

And biggest of all

Bought THIS
Your Big Beautiful Book Plan

So now I am going to have to get stuck in and write that book I keep rabbiting on about

Meanwhile back at the ranch
Preparations are well underway for the upcoming Encaustic Retreat in Albany

Now back to your regularly scheduled program
