granny fi's toy cupboard - venue for saturday's 'booked
in' events - my workshop and our panel session
i had a three hour illustration workshop at Granny Fi's Toy Cupboard, an art/craft/gift shop run by author/artist Fiona MacDonald. i was wondering how i'd fill three hours but it flew by and i actually didn't have time to do a couple of the things i planned. it went well though.
then a panel session with isobelle carmody, fiona, sophie masson and me, chaired by liz hale, who i worked with earlier in the week at the university of new england. our session was held in the large backroom of granny fi's, around a very warm and welcoming wood fire. it was grey and rainy today so we felt very cosy and definitely in the right spot.

it's been a treat to have a whole afternoon and evening with isobelle, it's so rare that we're in the same place at the same time. it's been a good day
|sophie, isobelle and i in a great cafe in uralla's main street, beautiful coffee and a wonderful orange wall, i feel guilty that i'm not mentioning its name, didn't see what it was|
|we liked this sign in the coffee shop|
|loved these lights in the uralla pub restaurant, a black room with about 12 of these intriguing lightshades, a lovely glowing cream|
