Totally off topic...........

How patient is this dog?  We needed cheering up because Jess (daughter 22) and I both have the poxy lurgy!   Jess decided to do a bit of dress up and Monte (who is a dignified standard poodle - using that term dignified very loosely) was happy to oblige - and he is such an obliging dog.  We have two of these standard poodles and they are just wonderful.  Poor Monte however, has masticatory myositis and is on medication for the rest of his life.

Now I'll get back to being serious and do some work!  I'm working on many "new" things in the weaving/wicker department and the development stage is always the most time consuming.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Adding a little colour to the mix.........

was fun!  Hey - Spring is on it's way and I'm so glad of that!  I hate the cold - but only 2 weeks to go and we'll be off!!  So I'm celebrating - adding some colour to baskets - and it was fun!  They look very cheerful!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week!
Until next time - cheers!!!!

Rik Pierce Workshop - New Zealand March 2013

Rik will be visiting the southern hemisphere next year to run his Fair Rosamund's Bower workshop.  With the cost of shipping being what it is, he was concerned about getting his display house to this part of the world.  The Australian organiser of the workshop got a kit sent out and asked me to put it together for the event and I wanted to share the end result with you.  I'm quite happy with it and I hope the master will be too!!

This finished house will end up in someone else's possession but I will be getting a kit for myself and then I can make all the alterations I would like!  I am so glad I had the opportunity to work on this project.

The V-Dub Spectacular came to town........

..........and on Saturday morning, Nambucca's main street was crammed full of Volkswagens of every shape, size and colour (rumoured to be 400 in number)!

They ranged from the beautifully restored........

to the restorer's dreams........

to the downright characterful..............

The main street was jam packed with cars and people - and oh what a beautiful day we had for the event!
This is winter for us!!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
