Forest Fire?

Forest Fire I SOLD

Forest Fire II SOLD
Forest Fire III


The other day when I was dyeing, my reds weren't as successful as usual yet these forest pieces came out really well. I can really see this being worked with light and bright threads. They are of course for sale for $40US inclusive of postage.

I have had another shocking day with no work done and lots of anxiety. I was rung by the Child Protection Authority to tell me my middle troubled daughter had run away and she was last seen at the train station- this was after they had allowed her to stay at the home of a person I had specifically asked them not to place her due to a history that concerned me. She has been found- apparently she had not actually take the train but I have no further information. All of this is so upsetting for my other two children- and with everything else going on I feel like finding a little hobbit hole and just sleeping for a month and find I have made two or three large quilts which are in my head but which I can't get to and that my house is built. The last two weeks have been school holidays so that interferes with work and just when I thought I could see some space and I had some ideas this happens to rock the equilibrium. The other thing I wish is that these people would actually listen to the things I have been telling them!

Oh, Dijanne
My heart goes out to you...as well as good thoughts that this will pass with a positive outcome.
Keep your feet on the ground and be steady.

Dear Dijanne,
I am so sorry to read of your further upset with your daughter. Those around mental illness always seem to be secondary to the actual sufferer and it is so unfair.
sending you a big hug,
Karen in Coolamon

really sorry to hear of your upset Dijanne. My heart leapt as I read. I hope things turn out well.

Of course this is less than relevant to you given the circumstances but I have passed on an award to you on my blog for inspiring the creative www.
take care
