..........a very scenic part of the world. Here are some shots taken during our walks over the last two days. The views never get boring - the colours change constantly depending on the weather at the time and it is always beautiful - even on a dull day! Hope you enjoy.

And what a wonderful show it was. Meeting up with so many talented people and just having a great time all around. And now I will show some of the treasures I found there:

A gift from the lovely Mary Grady O'Brien

All these pieces are ear-marked to be placed in Indiana Jones' house (a work in progress for the last many, many, many years! Maybe this year I will get a chance to do some work on it. Sigh!!
A week after I got home, I was at the Sydney miniatures show and that was another great weekend. My shopping there was very subdued this year, but I will share my purchases:

..........of basket weaving. I've been working on those lidded picnic baskets and egg baskets for near on three weeks now and decided it was time to have a little fun time with some colour and shapes and these are the results. I will do more of them when all the hard stuff is done!!
I must apologise for the poor photo quality - promise to try and do better next time!!

........and getting ready to make miniature splint woven baskets in both 1:12th and 1:24th scale. It is time consuming and sometimes tedious - but it has to be done!! The end results are always well worth while and I will show the results when they are finished.

.....but not entirely complete. Still working on the rollocks and oars - but they are on the way. In the meantime, I've finished painting one of the boats and put some of my fishing paraphanalia on and around it - and it looks not too bad.
What do you think?

finally coming together very nicely indeed. I wanted a boat on which I could display
my miniature fishing paraphanalia and asked Peter if he could oblige. And this is
the result so far - not finished yet - rollocks to be made, oars to be made and then I
have to paint it - but I was so excited to see it this close to completion, I just had to share!
For interest's sake, it measures 280mm long and 84mm wide.
I am one happy duck!!
I will post pictures again once I've painted it!!
