We have rented a house for a week away by the sea….. with two new books in hand and a box of goodies to play with, no dye pot on this trip.
this is the view out the window and the migrating whales give us a show every day…..
the boys have flown, we’ve walked, snorkelled and combed the shore for treasure.
Now on day three …… and 3 days is my limit my head is in a spin so much to take in. This Cas Holmes workshop has probably been the most challenging workshop that I have attended, not physically but mentally probing all parts of me.

A dear friend gifted this probably almost vintage Trent Nathan wool jacket, and boy what a challenge ! I had this gem in my wardrobe for some time and alas I will need it as I am off to Melbourne and then out to Traralgon for a 3 day workshop with Cas Holmes ( I’m very excited ) The bundle was hard work but worth the arm / hand strain
I have produced some new dress/slips to go into a couple of catwalk events.
I enjoy this immensely letting my inner fashion designer out ….I also have a daughter with a good eye and this helps make the final decisions.
having fun with socks.. sandwiched with eucalyptus and a little bit of clary sage on silk.
the little frames are mixed media silk and wool with some doodle stitching…..
friend Jadranka and I made a pennant each for India’s solace project, looking forward to seeing the pennants after an indigo dip and place upon the breeze…… and that all the words of hope and wisdom fill the air.
There is nothing like playing with stuff out side your world ! I went to a workshop that taught me how to use Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan . Very clever stuff works on most surfaces and very little or no prep….. right up my alley.
We bundled up wool scarves/ shawls in readiness for winter …..the copper did her bit and the magic of Eucalyptus has discovered
Over the Easter break Jasper and I found a few more railway spikes at the old unused track, and a nest in the sculptural eagle, and the beautiful Red flowering Eucalyptus alas gave very little colour.
