Back from New Zealand...........

.........and it's so good to be home again!  Had an absolutely fabulous time over there - the workshop was great fun and it was good to catch up with the master (Rik Pierce).

I took so many photos - so I have set up some of them in an album on  Flickr - the link to which is

I hope you go and take a look at them.  I did a huge cull so I wouldn't bore you all to death!!

I did manage to make some baskets while I was away so all in all it was a successful trip.

I have to take this opportunity to welcome new followers to my blog - lovely to see you here!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend.  Take care of yourselves.

Just had to share this.....

I found this gorgeous orchid in my garden today!  I was totally amazed - must have missed the whole flower spike thing - but I didn't miss it in full bloom.  The photo does not do it justice.

I have dedicated this lovely orchid to my poodle Madi who is no longer with me.  She was truly my best pet friend ever and I will really miss her.

And more baskets.........

I have been working - perfect weather really - staying in out of the rain and the following pics show some of the results!

And now I'd better go and do some packing.  I leave for New Zealand at 0 dark hundren on Friday to assist with the Rik Pierce workshop - but I'm taking my weaving supplies with me so I can continue my work.  I'm sure to have some free evenings - I hope!    Will report back in on my return - hopefully with lots of pics to share.

Take care everyone!

Water water everywhere..................

We have had the wettest summer in 50 years but can count ourselves very lucky.  We didn't suffer the severe flooding of Grafton or Kempsey but there was lots of water around Nambucca.
