Photo a Week #4

A couple of photos this week that I took yesterday to show the height of the river here. Before Christmas the Weir was taken out and the river has been rising quite fast now and is expected to go much higher in the coming weeks as the 'inland sea' that is moving through Victoria reaches us in the coming days. Caravan parks along the river are becoming empty as they prepare to be inundated with the water. These photos I took with my phone yesterday down at a local caravan park called 'Apex Park'. This park is also a usually popular Summer destination for locals and tourists as it features a 'beach' area - a huge sandbar. As you can see by the photos, no sandbar and if you look closely you can see the trees well out in to the water.

My (a little late) Creative Space

A busy week here. Slowly getting myself geared up for another year of markets, with the first local one for the year in a couple of weeks time and the first city one - Lollipop Markets in Adelaide in 4 weeks time - eeeekkkk! So my rack of clothing had dwindle down to about a dozen dresses after the final Christmas markets so after a beautifully relaxing break away over the Christmas/New Year period I am back into full "sewing mode" and have been busy this week . . .


and an early release for Autumn/Winter 2011 available in store now.

My Creative Space

On our recent trip away to Tassie, my MIL opened the doors to her sewing room and gave me this bundle of goodies to bring home with me. A retired seamstress, she has boxes and cupboards full of all sorts of goodies and gave me her stash of laces, bias and zips that she no longer uses. Many of the laces are quite old, back from her days working in a haby shop as a young girl. There are even pieces from her wedding dress. I plan to use lots of lace in my upcomig Autumn/Winter 2011 creations so stay tuned for some sneak peaks in the weeks to come.

Back to blogging with a PAW

To get me back into blogging for 2011 and get me into using my lovely new camera hubby bought me a few months back I am begining 2011 with something new. I was going to try for a photo a day, but decided a photo a week might be better.
Down at the farm - Tasmania

So every Monday I will post a photo I have taken that week, something random - family, nature, craft who knows. Feel free to join in the fun if you are interested let me know, and I will work out how to do that mr linky thing and set it up for next week.

So each Monday stay tuned for 'PAW' (photo of the week).
