A week late, but never mind! November seemed to be full of politics. The American election consumed the first half of the month, and the second seemed to be full of talk about the anniversary of the Australian Federal election. So when this topic lobbed into my inbox, the first thing that sprang to mind was the phrase, “opinion poll”. […]
…from one medium to another. A while back I did a little pastel sketch of some purple flowers, and mentioned at te time that I might use it as a basis for a silk ribbon embroidery. So when we went away a few weeks ago, I packed my embroidery box, slapped some paint on some fabric, and ended up […]

This rain seems to be here for a few days, so we have had another crafty morning.
