Someone else was enjoying the winter sunshine this morning....this is Minnie. We havent seen a lot of sunshine lately so she was making the most of it.
Being winter I am enjoying crocheting some scarves....I visited the Tarrawarra Gallery at Healesville on the weekend to see the Archibald Winners Exhibition. Wonderful portrait paintings...awesome in fact. The winning portrait this year was of one of Australia's most well known painters, Margaret Olley. Sadly she passed away last week, so it was especially poignant to see this exhibition and remember this beautiful, talented lady.
After the exhibition my sister and I did some wandering around Healesville and I bought these lovely wools . The Charcoal is for my sister and the two variegated (arent the colours yummy!!!) wools for my friends twin girls who will turn 9 at the end of the month.
I am keen to stitch more on my latest quilt, so in my travels this weekend (this time I was over in Geelong seeing an exhibition by local printmakers) I found these vintage fabrics in a little shop. A couple of kimono's and old scarves. These will come in very handy and may find themselves in a dye pot soon.
I bought a new long line vest today .....I only noticed the sunshine heart when I got home.....so I'm sending you some sunshine....
Enjoy your week....I plan to stitch .....
MOST OF ALL,
LOVE YOUR SELF.
