We were just talking about this singer yesterday...we think she was a student at the school David's father taught at in Preston
liked this guy...King Billy!!
thought this was cute
liked the sea and boat here
always good to be reminded to smile!!
another Aussie singer who left us too soon.
Then I wandered off to the National Wool Museum to have a look at the festival of the Scarves
the theme this year was Myths and Legends
loved this felted scarf with the little creatures on it
a bit of a view, there are 300 scarves in here, knitted,felted, crochet, some made using reclaimed products,
I think this was the lady of the Lake...I was being followed around by the lady watching over the display, she was encouraging me to try one on and decide which one I wanted to buy!!! They started in price from $30 and went up to over $300.....mmmmm...no thanks, I think I will stick with the scarves I have!!
this quilt was up in the dinosaur section and was made for a woman who did a lot of work in the area of fossils, I think the darker plant and shell fossils were printed on, it was beautiful!
I went from here to the library and sat and read fora while, then went outside and found a sheltered spot to eat lunch and do a bit of sewing before I was picked up to go and get my car.
sewing in the sun!! With all the cold weather gear on!!! Lol!!
this is a great place to enjoy the sunshine
love the front of the library building
the few clamshells I sewed today
when I got home Ethel (thank you Ondrea for the name suggestion) was all ready for a visit outside, but today I think she needs an umbrella!!
We went to hubby's step fathers 90th birthday celebrations yesterday up in the eastern suburbs, it took us two and a half hours to get there, the traffic was heavy and slow, and about 2 hours to get home so it was a long day, I managed a little knitting before I fell into bed!! We could have been at the South Australian border doing that much driving!!
Ok enough from me for today, is dark here now (5.36pm) and the rain is coming down heavily!
