A bit of Halls Gap
I really should be more organised but, my 6 days at Halls Gap, plus another 2 getting there and home again, for a wonderful class with Sandy Webster from the US has left me very tired. We made pigments from the earth, and we made a wonderful field journal box and a book as well as other things. I didnt really take advantage as I should have of the lovely scenery and surroundings but I did manage to do two small sketches of the leaves and seeds that were around our class room. I sometimes think I am getting to the end of my workshop days, but then, something comes up and off I go again. I loved this class, I just didnt love the packing up to come home on my own and the 6 hour drive. Now I am home I have done nothing but wash, tidy etc, having been told I may have the Melbourne family over for Easter, and I head off again on Easter Sunday for Ballarat!! So I am tidying one room, and as most of the stuff from there is going into another I can shut the door on. Only trouble is I need to tidy that room up as well. Life is never meant to be easy and I suppose I should think about getting rid of stuff, but then one does need stuff, it is amazing what I have found in my tidying. Any way I loved my few days away, catching up with friends and yet being able to retire to my little cabin and do my own thing as well. Do just wish I didnt get so tired.
