I have not touched this tapestry for at least 3 weeks but I had done some work on it before that and will post where I am up to.  I am hoping to have a lot of time when I unpack to finish it before the end of Jan.

It is starting to  take shape.

Roses and Visitors

I suppose because I won't have access to this view much longer I should enjoy it while I can.  The roses are lovely this year and the red lilies and nasturtiums in the back ground provide a nice contrast.  Needless to say I have done no weaving; the sorting and packing for a garage sale precluded that. 

One of the things I find facinating about having a blog is the number of visitors and how they find it. It is exciting to have people from all over the world look at my musings; but I was really excited the other day to discover I had a visitor from Hanoi, a city I love and would like to spend an extended time in. One day.

I have finished a new part of the tapestry and I have called it Alice after our tour around Alice Springs.  At the end of the 2 hour tour Albert Namajira' grave was pointed out almost as an afterthought.  I thought how sad it was that this eminent Aboriginal painter was  reduced to an afterthought by the tour guide. He painted many ghost gums and this is my take on the one on his grave.

 The second one looks lighter  because you can see more of the orange  zebra rock section and I think I have photoshopped the first one.
