a simple shift dress in SilkyMerino
sometime next week i shall be loading up the ute (that's a pick up, if you're American) and pootling off across the interior of Australia to deliver and install back country in the Tamworth Regional Gallery
the opening has been set for the evening of December 13th (which is also the feast day of Santa Lucia)
and there's a chance i could offer a one-day intensive workshop on Sunday December 14th if there is sufficient interest - please drop me a line in the comments below if you think you'd care to join us
earlier today i spent time in the Tardis at Australia's national broadcaster (Auntie ABC) pre-recording for the program Talking Plants with Tim Entwisle (Director of the Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens) and fellow guests John Wolseley and Jim Fogarty, which turned out to be rather fun.
to fortify my courage i wore amazing socks knitted by my friend Sidnee Snell
who (as they used to say in the better fairytales) is as clever as she is beautiful
the series begins on December 21 but the program i took part in today will air at 9am on Sunday January 25...i will be in New Zealand so won't have to listen to myself murmuring away.
on the way home i dropped into the wonderful emporium in Hahndorf called Poet's Ode. the proprietor Alia and i talked about me maybe having some work on display there in the near future (which would be lovely as i don't currently have anything on show here in my home state)
it's a clean and beautiful space with the most glorious pressed tin walls.
and now i'm out to give the cowbabies their warm supper, before sitting down to a cuddle with Yoda-San
