Something I am working on
I have been working on a piece of charcoal coloured silk. I wasn't expecting to be working on it at all- but suddenly an idea arrived that I just had to do- fortunately I had just the piece of grey silk that I had dyed ages ago- I am thinking of the dark dark coloured waters of the creeks in summertime out the back of Jerilderie- and the dry dusty summers ..... It might be a companion to my flag piece.
I had some bad news the other day- we had hoped to stay in this house until January when we go to France- but unfortunately the landlord wants his house back as soon as possible after our lease expires- I think they will let us stay until my eldest daughter has finished exams mid November, but then we have two months of limbo. I am thinking hard about what I will do.All our furniture has to go into storage- lots of packing up to do! I also want to put my block of land on the market.
I haven't organised any workshops for January in Europe- but if we go earlier I do need to be earning money as we need to organise a car and various other things, and I haven't sold much work at all this year. I have been lucky that I had the books.
However we have found a home for our cat- so that is one worry out of the way, and she knows one of the people already- so that is even better.
