Make More Art

No posts since Inktober?!!

Not good that 2019 kicks off with the same resolution as 2018 – Make More Art!

There has been some progress on my latest tree portrait….


Started in 2017! Still going…

and lots of creativity of the stitching kind:


Seahorse and Butterfly – Inspired by the fabric


Seduced By Cute Fabric


The pattern said Fast and Easy – It was not!


Inspired by an Op Shop sheet!


Old Became New


And Reversible


A 5 pocket shoulder / bum bag from scraps with Boro front pocket.


The back pocket was ready made!


Seduced By Cute Fabric – Again!


A Girl Has To Have Coordinating Accessories!?

And I crocheted and stitched 15 Xmas presents. Β Yes I need to focus on the main game!

Reaching For The Sun – #Inktober 2018 Day 30

The Valley Of the Giants Tree Top Walk in Tingledale, WA, on the 30th, was spectacular.Β  At the highest point one is 40 metres high but some of the more than 400 years old Tingle Trees are 70 metres high!

Peaceful Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 28

We left the Porongurups for Peaceful Bay on the Great Southern Ocean.Β  There were peaceful lagoons but at this time of year the wind creates plenty of wild surf in other parts of the bay.Β  All beautiful!

Camp Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 27

Due to a sore back I stayed at camp on the 27th while the others went off to conquer the highest peak in the Stirling Ranges – Bluff Knoll.

I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine while sketching a view of the Porongurups from the caravan park – a complex view of dramatic, bare, granite outcrops, lush forest and scrubland.

Sunny Porongurups – #Inktober 2018 Day 27

When the others returned after their successful climb I was happy to be in a better state than they!


Playing In Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 26

Day 26 we managed to walk from the caravan park to the Porongurups Village Store and Cafe – not very far!

We enjoyed morning coffee and scones in the garden.Β  Afterwards we played a long game of Chinese Chequers on a board painted onto a hexagonal table top, using painted bottle caps. Fun re-purposing!
