So let's start with this amazing drawing of a Lego guy, executed with deft talent and precision by our 5 year old Canadian grandson, H.
He is without a doubt destined for a fine career in the arts, and a very bright future.
Would a proud Grannie not be right?
In case you are wondering, I am still sewing from time to time.
This is the start of an experiment involving a pure wool tweed and some black faux leather. I found the 'leather' much easier to work with, and sew, than I anticipated. Thank goodness.
Far too many things end in the Land of Stuff-ups...
Front of winter dress taking shape.
The sleeves will be 3/4 length in the wool.
Better get on with it, Winter being so short and sweet hereabouts.
We have been away for a few days on family business at Harvey Bay, along the coast north of Brisbane.
Driving past the sugar cane fields, just on sundown.
Spent a peaceful morning wandering the beach at Urangan, while Mr C attended to the business at hand.
Needed some solitude, and contemplation time, following my annual mammogram and cancer check this week.
A shadow on a scan, 3mm in size, and a biopsy to be sure all is well.
Yes, all OK, I found out today.
The problem patch is part of the internal injuries I sustained in our car accident in 2011. Nature is still trying to heal those injuries.
No Mr Bad Guy for 2015!!
Thank you Lord...
The last time I walked this beach I was a child...
Our family camped in a tent, among these trees by the shore.
Those old beachside camping grounds have largely disappeared along the Queensland coast.
Me and my Mum.
I remember that little red polka-dot swimsuit, which she made just for me.
Have a sweet week.
