Let it flow past us.

Two weeks ago yesterday, I woke to the news that India was cancelling tourist visas, and our Textile Trip was cancelled.I was a little surprised, and, indeed, I could have made the deadline for Australians using the visa but, the American Tourists had their visas cancelled so, there was little point. I do admit that…

I'm doing it.

I’m not going to even comment much on what’s happening in the world right now. I can’t do a darn thing about it.I want to look forward to the next few months and make each day a calm realisation.I miss travel; I miss my students, I miss the smell of the Ocean at Asilomar and…

Where are we? What happens now?

I just don’t know. I just cancelled my flights for my second large trip to the USA. Fortunately Qantas is honouring both of my airfares and I can re-book when I need to. I have to cancel to get a re-fund or else I loose it all. I feel guilty that I’m enjoying my enforced…

Life, leisure and luxurious working environments.

It’s some time since I wrote a blog – a few weeks in fact. Now our lives have changed dramatically with the devastation of this terrible virus. I’m so pleased that I’m home. However, I was within 12 hours of flying and I could have been caught in India. That would have been OK with…

Punta Cana

3 days of travel and now I’m here in Punta Cana Dominican Republic. The TV news is talking to me in the background, the light is mellow in the room. I’m in my Jamas and trying to stay awake just a little longer. I’ve done 3 days washing and hung it in the bathroom and…

Traveling today.

I’ve actually been traveling for two days, Iwrote this yesterday as I traveled. One day from Australia and I arrived at 6.00 am yesterday. I admit I slept a bit when I got to the hotel. I don’t think I could have done another 5 hours to Miami so I do it today. The art…

Look out of the window and create a quilt.

This is what it looks like as you fly over Australia. Sometimes I can capture images, sometimes not. This time I flew to right through the centre of Australia from South the North and I captured this image. Come home and make the quilt. Finished.

Working through the process.

Still working on the Giraffe. To be honest I had some doubts after I coloured the background but I quite like it now and I have a lot more planned for it, by that I mean I need to darken the top two edges of the quilt so that your eyes focus on the image…

It’s cooler today.

For us, living in the Adelaide Hills, the temperature has dropped and it’s cool once again. There is a stillness in the garden and the agapanthus are almost in full bloom and I love sitting out amongst the foliage and my ‘things’ and working. It’s unreal that our country is in the grip of terrible…

A muddling day.

I began the day with good intention, plans were changed for a meeting at the last minute and it sort of threw me a bit. OK, suck it up sunshine, I wanted to achieve a lot today, but I got sidetracked and washed the bathroom mats and did some cooking. (not my favourite thing) I…
