I’ll be on holidays for the next few weeks. I’ll be back early October, hopefully refreshed and ready to start creating more glorious creations  in EQ7.

Lunch Today

We took my mother-in-law out today for a belated mothers’ day lunch. Really nice fish and chips of course. I love being by the water and find it very relaxing.

My Week

This is the view as I walked up to my car from work on Wednesday afternoon, those long autumn afternoon shadows are very distinct. The rain was just spitting a little bit and it was also very windy.

Next are some teaching samples I made this week.

Yesterday I finally got around to basting a quilt which I need finished by the end of the month. Nothing like flying by the seat of your pants is there?

I decided to use a new tape I had bought specifically for securing the backing fabric to my tiled floor. Turns out it is duct tape, silly me. According to Wikipedia it will leave a sticky residue when removed. Don’t I know it! It left part of the fabric backing as well in some places. Took me about 15 minutes of hard rubbing with Sticky Spot and Goo Remover and Eucalyptus oil as well to get rid of it. Last night I still heard comments of ‘there’s something sticky on the floor over there’. lol The eucalyptus fumes coming from the cloth I used and placed in the laundry were so strong the cyclist complained his eyes were watering!

I’d need to be really desperate to ever use this tape again. Apparently gaffer tape will remove cleanly but I’m guessing I won’t come across any of that at the ‘right price’.

Mona Vale Today

This morning when I left for work  it was a chilly nine degrees where I live, it was even much cooler earlier. I was working at Mona Vale and took this photo at the grassy area overlooking the Beach. When I left work it was a beautiful mild and warm winter’s day and the thermometer had risen many degrees by then.
