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!


One Must Have Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 31

We saw more yellow wildflowers on our way to Margaret River on the sunny 31st.Β  So we had it all – sunshine, freedom and a little flower!

Yay!Β  I’ve caught up with posting and that ends my Inktober 2018.


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!

Raining Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 25

After 2 days of strenuous exercise we settled on a leisurely stroll (to ease our aching muscles) along a 1 km walk at the base of Castle Rock.Β  Wildflowers were abundant, especially the genus Chorizema with pea like flowers.Β  A yellow climbing variety hung down as if raining sunshine!

Sunshine Rocks – #Inktober 2018 Day 24

Remembering it as an easy trail, except for the last part, we climbed Castle Rock in the Porongurups on the 24th.Β  Either our memories or our bodies must have played a trick on us as it was a long slog up to the first lookout! The vertical climb from there up to the skywalk was well worth the struggle as the views in the sunshine were stunning.

Sunny Wildflowers – #Inktober 2018 Day 23 PM

Unwisely, after walking the Nancy Peak Trail in the morning, we decided to do a short wildflower trail in the afternoon.Β  Somehow we lost the trail markers and had another long trek! A plus was finding a patch of wild, sunny yellow cowslip orchids.

Imagine The Sunshine – #Inktober 2018 Day 23 AM

On the 23rd we walked the Nancy Peak Circuit Trail in the Porongurups.Β  The walk crosses the main peak of the ranges and gives panoramic views of the granite rocks, lush forests and the distant Stirling Ranges.

It was a cool day with grey skies so I had to imagine the sunshine in the sketch for the day.
