ooh - where has it gone?
And did I mention that Kimberley Dreaming - the Broome Retreat - is up on air http://www.thethreadstudio.com/Broome/Broome_Retreat.pdf - all the information is here - hope you can join us - it will be a fab weekend. I have so many ideas planned and in the head.
Plus Elizabeth Dubbelde from Berry Patchwork is organizing the Textile Art Prize and Exhibition to be displayed in Broome and in Berry and other places still to be decided. You don't have to be at the Retreat to participate but we would love to see your fabulous work http://www.thethreadstudio.com/Broome/Entry_Form.pdf
During the month I popped over to New Zealand once again - this time sadly for my brother Lewis' funeral. The nasty C word seems to spoil a lot of people's lives and I guess we had got quite close this past year - he and I were working away on the family tree. I didn't go to either of my parents funerals and made a fairly quick decision to go - Grant flew over from Sydney as well which was lovely. I am the youngest of our clan and Lewis was the first to die. It was good catching up with some of the cousins - the ones who came. I put quite a lot of effort into researching the family - and the Rollerson family - certainly keeps me out of mischief and I am gathering stuff for my plan to create my Letters to the Grannies - Lewis was more interested in the men of the Dustin family.
I never saw my mother posing but I found this photo and thought I would use it - not am image I ever saw but I think it was taken on their trip to Australia in 1939 - Lewis was conceived on the Wanganella I do believe.
Let's see how I get on in October.....
