Makings on the move

Seven Sisters Festival. I am so blessed to have been able to attend once again, having been once 6 years ago...


With all the deep inner healing journies and experiences, there wasn't much brain left for stitching... but this is what I got to make over the 3 day festival...

I painted these round mandalas with water paint, setting my intentions for the festival.. titled centre, release and rise...




We enjoyed henna on our bodies...

Grounded with coffee and chocolate..

Enjoyed music, dancing and food...

catchup with my cousin Karla who I hadn't seen for 5 years...


I made a clay yoni... and met this lovely lady in the craft tent...


Everyone's yoni was so different, but all special...

I have placed mine on the altar at home...

Greateful I was able to catch up with a friend I met last time, 6 years ago...


And an online friend from Perth, Lynley, that I hadn't met before.


And here I am.. ready to go home for family time, and some sewing! I am craving some stitching!!!

Sojourn, not a sewjourn....


And here we go..









First day of a little trip away, first time Mummy has been away overnight... goodness...



And she goes away for a week!!

Wow, look at the difference a night of uninterrupted sleep makes!!!

 A trip to Melbourne, celebrating some fun discoveries....


What a fun juice shop... it smelt amazing!


Hello my darling friends Rosie and Andrea from Made By Andrea


This is a darling place Andrea loves with its chocolate and high teas.

 Walking past this sweet garden bed to get to....

L'ucello! Wow, what a beautiful find this little shop is!


 A vintage look paradise.... lots of ideas.. and right in the city... I would've gone there every day for lunch...



Every display is a delight.


You'd never know it was in this funny little building with an old fashioned lift.



I do love a bit of plant life in a decorating scheme.

And then there was this little part of the city..

 Look at the trees growing out of the windows... it's Storyville, the bar!


Ohhh yes!


It's fun to be a grown up girl that can visit these places!

 Alice in Wonderland garden.



The big mushroom, is there a caterpillar on top?


And don't forget a swing!!!

Everyone should get to try one!



I love being a grown up!!
 And a girl!!


 Another beautiful catchup with Robin...



A quick dropin to Spellbox, and what an appropriate spin of the wheel "Oracle of Adventure"!!



What a fascinating piece this is! I'll have it!

And this one too!


And a wee sugarfree ice cream for me in the Royal Arcade...



And the vegetarian heaven where you can get a Chick'n parmagiana (all meat free) or chips and poutine!

Hmm... what's next? Meeting Lynley from Perth, and we are off to a women's festival!


 Still no sewing! Hahahahah

Making mud angels

You may be wondering where all the sewing show and tell is.... Me too!

The concrete holes have been pumped out, and the mud has been pumped out here into the yard... and this has kept a 3 years and 4 month old boy especially, in trouble!  

There is no point starting to sew when I can be covered in mud at any time. Here is a little example...



Ooh, miss 7 lost her gumboot.

 Master 8 is pulling it out.





Master 3 skipped the gumboots, and is just having fun getting stuck.



And now he is lying on his back and kicking like he is at a swimming lesson. Hahahahah.





Making mud angels.


Hmm... maybe I can sew next week...
