Saturday morning signing in
On Wednesday we went to the first ACO concert of the year (Australian Chamber Orchestra) - fabulous as always and Teddy Tahu Rhodes with his beautiful voice was the guest. The lady who used to sit next to us and who is now in a wheelchair has been able to be seated at the back of our section - she is always interested to know what we have been up to. Now Ian has a new very chatty lady sitting next to him.
Last night we went to the opening of the Perth Festival but found it all rather boring and a bit self indulgent so wandered off to Lido for a cheap eat - always quality food there. It is extremely windy at present - easterlies and not always as hot as you think. high fire alert today with a total fire ban so looks like our bbq tandoori chicken will be cooked in the oven.
My favourite lotus pond. I would like one like this is my back garden and keep talking about it.
Lots to do today - I have 20 kilos of Indian silk loom waste waiting for me to package and I really can't put it off any more. Then I have Lesson 3 for hot Needles Cool Stitches to work on (nearly finished - lots more embellishing to do), and I want to play more with my painted Lutradur pieces and a new fabric I am exploring.
A reminder to go visit my entry below on One World One Heart and leave a comment if you haven't to be in the draw for a piece of work. It finishes on 17th Feb. Also go to our website and click on Gidday Quilters - it doesn't cost anything to participate (Australian entries only though sorry) and you could be in to win. And when you are searching our website for the ROO remember to look in Australian/NZ hand dyed threads - where else would you find a ROO? Have fun! And don't forget to visit The Thread Studio facebook site and click Like - last time I looked there were 449 fans - amazing....
