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…

A little more of the Quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival.

I flew directly to India after Houston and I still had a lot of images to share but I just rolled into the image of India. So here they are, I’m not sure what category these were in. I think it was colour. Nevertheless, they are gorgeous.

It’s cooler today.

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…

I now have the time to share.

Early mornings, late nights and I needed to concentrate on my task at hand rather than socialise over the past 8 days, so now I’m free for a day and I will photograph and share as much as I can . This is one of the most stunning quilts I viewed. I love everything about…
