Greeting of the season ….. a snap shot of my year
and here’s to a productive, creative and fun filled 2017 xx
A merry day was had at ATASDA’s Christmas Fair, held at the BVAC house at Tarragindi on Saturday. A big thanks to all those whom supported us all with your purchases.
Wishing You a Happy Christmas time and the best for the coming Year…. the bouquet from my garden will become a bundle ….
This morning the air is fresh and the sun is shining a wander with my cup of tea beckoned, we have a multitude of flowers in bloom at present.
In the Eucalypts we have a male koala in one tree and a mother and baby in another sadly the phone camera is not up to the challenge of distance. I shall take the real camera out later and see if I can capture these wonderful creatures.
I am making a concerted effort to up my exercise regime, so a walk in the bush is always good. We live in the hills so there is always down hill then back up the other side. Having shed some extra middle age kilos over the last year, with some simple dietary changes that are a bit “Paleo” ( though I am not completely grain free ) so now it’s time to work on my cardio. I have come across a book written by Dr Cris Beer “Healthy Habits 52 ways to better health” that is a week by week plan to better all round health mental and physical. A walk in the bush always gives me a chance of collecting some interesting windfall, thus a bouquet of eucalyptus is a bonus for my effort.
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
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…..
We bundled up wool scarves/ shawls in readiness for winter …..the copper did her bit and the magic of Eucalyptus has discovered
