OH DEAR i was all set last week to head off to Halls Gap for a week of workshops, two days on illustration and four days of various printmaking techniques.  took all day to pack all the things i needed to take including my electric copper, then in the evening i realised i was getting a lurgy.  in short i've spent the past week pretty well on the couch or in bed and i think i've warded it off.  NQR this morning but definitely on the mend. so i got a lot of things done that i've been meaning to do for ages, computer stuff, knitting, sewing and binge watching netflix :0)

spent quite a lot of
time googling stuff too,
old photos of kids - i think
i'll do a new batch of
monoprints.  and retouching
our family photo of my
father with his brothers
and sisters and parents.
father Don in his big boy suit, left Myra, mother Anne (deceased and stripped into
the studio photo, she was facing out of the picture so i've turned her around) uncle Jim in shining ringlets, auntie Edna, uncle Tal and grandpa George.  his wife would have been gone only a year or so.

beautiful freesias brought by visitors last week, they're lasting well
 finished my jumper

 i foolishly knitted this jumper in acrylic a few years back and of course lived to regret it.
so i've reknitted it in lovely bendigo wool

first outing for a week, off to the movies to see The Merger.  actor john howard and the cast and producers have personally worked their butts off getting this movie out. john and some cast members came for Q&A on sunday, a funny film and a good night.   i always love seeing these
tall delicate
palms when i
go to the cinema
