Backyard kangaroos

Recently we had a visit from some great friends, one of whom lives in Alaska. Hi Tim and Karen!
When they were here, our backyard kangas popped in to say hello which was so nice for them.
This afternoon, I was sitting here checking my emails and they came at dusk for a munch. I just had to share this with you.
We really are so blessed living here...



Definitely need that fence around the vege garden though... before we do any major planting.
We'll keep their access open for the grassed area though... How could we deprive the bulge in Mama Roo's pouch that succulent green cooch?

Baby Dragons for Silkwood

The Hearts and Hands craft group at Silkwood are making these gorgeous little baby dragons.  The original design is by Robyn Stickland, Melbourne.  We each find our own embellishments and creativity to make each little critter unique and of course they are all made with much love…

Been busy making

I've been busy the past couple of days.

Found this gorgeous fabric in three of my favourite colours and heavy enough to make the bag I've had in mind for a little while...

The motif in the bottom right corner features prominently in my paintings. I call it my waterwheel design. I appliqued it on with the good old zig zag technique I learnt in high school sewing class. Waterwheels is also a song I wrote many years ago... Yes, I am a singer songwriter too. One day I'll get around to posting some of my songs on here. And make this blogspot a little more multimodal (as we creative arts therapists say). Waterwheels is a beautiful flowing metaphor in the song for how I transport myself (physically or in meditation/visualisation) to places that nourish my soul,... places I love, like the ocean!
