Busy Busy Busy

Well so much for updating,this current unit is sooo heavy,I was a week late as it was having to fly to Sydney to acomapny Huby driving an unregistered un plated PC back to WA,permits of course but amazing ly only pulled up once on the 3500 k trip to show thes bits of paper,its amkes you wonder how many are on the road even with plates but NOT registered, a scary thought
Down the Bell Line on the way to Mudgee, where I found Mudgee Shiraz,(and lamb cutlets,OMG I love Lamb Cutlets )we stayed there the night as neither of us had had much sleep,flying over from Perth Sunday night and arriving in Sydney at the glorious time of 630am,hmm,maybe if on holidays yes? but not when you re turning around to drive straight back to WA,lol well hmm anyway when I can Im buying a couple bottles of that stuff,not being a wine drinker really I didnt mind this one and yes i went looking to see if I can get it sent over ,OMG $30 a bottle....

 Mudgee morning at 7.45
 Border WA
 Madura Pass
 had to get this one!!
 And Hubby had to finish the cairn

 While  I found fossils

While at home Ive been working steadily on Sub,still a week behind ,maybe something to do with this..
Introducing a new acquisition,Gelli printing, cant wait to work more on these,some will be put into my Visual mixed Diary

and of course more of this
The first two are a batt I was ent as part of a spinning swap a few years back,looked at it while moving bedroom around and though its about time it became something,Ill team it with something that speaks to me and maybe it will become a tam hat

 BFL and Bunny from the Fabulour Mz Charly of Ixchel Fibre Farm, "Face of BO" 200 grams,Im ecstatic with this one,did the plain section coming home over Nullabor, I think theres about 300 metres all up,used every bit ,only abou 6 inches left over,crocheted the end to neaten and use up yarn,I use it around shoulders while studying drawing etc.

 yes theres a bunny in the back ground,she didnt wake while photo was taken
 This one above was also part of a swap,second skein,both spun and Navajo plied the same way ,it was harsh to feel, stiff, even a good wash wouldnt do anything so i spent three days unspinning plying then respun and thinned out the big bulky sections that were flat to fit through orifice then plied again same way and thus now have two soft skeins,Hubby roused as he thought as being gifted I should left them but the fixer upper in me thought well it a great learning process and i now know I can do it,and thank you to the lovely lass who sent it,I do cherish,it will be a warm hat or cowl when I can find the first skein. Would love to do another spin swap!!
Below is Optim Im currently spinning in spare time,i want to do a nacy Bush Estonian lace shawl, where Ill find time is anyones guess.
oh and a bit of art exercises...

Currently working on two large drawings of the memorial gardens,in my dreams I hope to finish them well enough to put into the gallery here when it opens
Other news i ve been told to apply for another Government job,there a good chance Ill get it,

Good points

  • Quiet living,
  • Plenty of varied contact with public
  • Living on my own a fair bit so more quiet time to do study no messes to worry about
  • money is better 
  • Get a Government House
  • great scenery for photography,art
  • Quiet evenings will mean a lot of hand craft will be done
  • No more heavy work and vibrating machinery so my arms will recover
  • no more nasty work people ,well that always depends anyway of people and dealing with lying cheating arseholes who tell tales to get into favor with boss (last holidays the big boss sucked up to that certain person,no one give a shite how I faired,cant wait til Labour relations visit)
  • away from family extended time like weeks,Miss my boys
  • prob a bit late for propmotion
  • Go down from level 5 to 2
  • miss out on holidays for another 12 months,haven't had any this year
  • away from shops hmm maybe thats a good one
  • Wont find out more till its advertised
  • rostered work meaning night shift
  • all personal are on same level with a co ordinate who already sound efficient.

Huge decisions to be made
right!!!! back to work!!
Oh I forgot,this arrived,from Tait Gallery   Just love it
