Doing Things

I have been busy lately
Perhaps not busy enough 
to have neglected the blog
as woefully as I have
But it seems once you slack off 
it is really quite difficult to regain 
your momentum
I did make a dress though
as a commission
This is in a silk knit
completely hand stitched
and dyed


I made it for a lovely local woman
to wear as a bridesmaid at
a Viking wedding

and here is the lovely Laura
looking fabulous
Love those horns

And now I am preparing 
to whizz off to Melbourne
and then to the Grampians
where I will be teaching
for details 
go here

Maybe you want to be a last minute
or might be intrigued enough
to invite me your way

Now back to trying to make 
my mountain of stuff 
fit in the pitiful luggage allowance
Mind you anymore and it would 
very difficult to haul around
I might be taking a leaf from
(there;s a blog post about this in there 
somewhere but darned if I could find it)
and only take a few clothes 
so I can fit in many workshop bits
we shall see
If only I had a bag
Like Mary Poppins
