In Melbourne

Just catching up, I am in Melbourne this week and then next week Geelong. Yay. So far I have op shopped, had dinner with my beautiful son and his partner who were in town for the weekend been on a picnic in Seymour, Marketed at the Abbotsford Convent and generally been having a really good time. This is of course all just a build up for the fun and exciement of the Fibre Forum in Geelong next week where I am doing a workshop with Sandy Webster. So much fun. There will also be a bazaar open to the Public, Friday evening October 1 and Saturday morning October 2 where I will have a stall with lots of lovely buttons, as will many of the tutors and students. So any one in the vicinity would be well advised to leggit down there and grab some gorgeousness.

Brave New Me?

This is full size of the picture on my header.
I didn’t necessarily mean that I would start addressing the big issues on my blog, though I might. It was more on the lines of trying to be more me, hmm now that makes no sense at all. I want my blog to be about more than just the latest bits of work I have for sale. I would like it to be a reflection of who I am and what I think about stuff. So I am not promising anything but I will try.

So with this new attitude in mind a big thank you goes out to Ivory at

For mentioning the Specific Carbohydrate Diet in a recent post, as someone who has suffered with chronic indigestion for several years and I have known that carbs where one of my biggest triggers I am now transitioning into this way of eating. I really like that there are recipe guidelines out there. I will try and remember to let you know how I am getting on. BTW almond meal, shredded coconut and butter makes a great crumble topping.

And just so you can get to know me a little better these are the current books on the bedside table.

The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp said best here:

Celebrate your Creative Self by Mary Todd Beam this is the second time round for me with this book.

The Greens Cookbook by Deborah Madison

The Bell at Sealey Head and The Winter Rose by Patricia McKillip, these two I plan to take to Melbourne with me as lyrical inspiration. No I think I will read them this week and rely on serendipity to provide something good to read while I am away.

Soul Stories by Gary Zukav

And I have just signed up for this here I am hoping to do more if all goes well.
More revelations as they come to hand, or as I think of them.

Late Draw

Oh no here it is Tuesday and I did promise I would do the giveaway draw yesterday. This is perhaps not a surprise to those of you who know me. I went to Hobart on Sunday to be a part of the Eastside Market and well the day was very much against us. So Monday really was a recovery and sorting day though I will have to negotiate it all back into my bag plus extras in just over a week for my big trip to Melbourne.

But what you really want to know is who gets the piece of Art!!!!

The winner is tadadadada, Penny who never wins anything.

So if you will scoot me an snail mail address I will send the art to you.
