I am one very proud Mum ..... my eldest son, Matt (23) has been selected for the Australian Showjumping Team for the Beijing Olympics !!! We are all so very excited and busy planning a trip to Hong Kong to watch him compete for his country. The above is a recent photo taken of Matt on the horse he will be riding at the Games, Leconte 6.
My husband Paul and Matt above walking the course at a recent show in Pforzheim, Germany. Paul went over to give Matt some family support while the selection shows were taking place (and he obviously enjoyed himself to boot... travelling around Europe to various shows during the six weeks he stayed with him).
This is Leo (stable name) relaxing back at the stables at a recent show in Rotterdam. Paul said he is quite the character in the stables and loves to lay down for a couple of hours each morning to eat his hay and be given his treats by his groom Sarah.... he's such a sweet horse and talented to boot.
As for art this week..... yes, I have done some, but not as much as planned. I made another doll for my art pal Dotee which she received today. I will have to post a picture later as I forgot to take one before I sent her parcel (my head is like a sieve at the moment). I have asked Dot to send me a picture so I can share it with you too. I particularly loved the new Kaffe Fassett fabric that Dot sourced for us.
Will share some more art after the weekend.
Take care and have a fun weekend (its going to be icy cold and wet here in Gippsland ).
We are not ashamed of our helplessness - No one really wants to have perfection - we dream about perfection I am not what I am. I am what I do with my hands A work of art doesn't need to be expla...
