I went with my boys to see the local medieval society day. We got there at th end and watched the knight on horseback. I love the whole knights and all, I am so happy my boys like it too so I can have someonr to go to these events with. We were luck enough to see some of these while in england, so it is a little out of place here in tasmania but Still I am happy there are some very dedicated followers of the traditional life of the medieval people.
Google has don it again. I will try and return these pictures but These are done by Carol Kingston. Natural dyes on paper. I am so sorry for all the head on side to enjoy these but when I first saw these I was totally taken by then. The photo doesnt really show the texture of these pieces. Visually stunning and I could not believe it was paper they had been painted on. There is just so much texture in them. I a huge favourite of mine, and also for my dad.
As you can see google seems to have turned my photo sideways, but if you turn your head you will see these two wonderful dyed pieces by Di Mcpherson. They are just stunning. These were part of the Unravel exhibition by the dyeing divas at the botanical gardens. Such talented women who make wonderful art fron nature. There was so much to be inspired by at this exhibition. I hope this group exhibits some more.
My life revolves around dogs, family and the change of the weather. You will find me knitting, walking or wondering why nothing much grows in my garden when we have no soil, plenty of rocks and wildlife that loves the plants I try to grow.
I guess you could say that I wish there was more time for me to do and make all those exciting things out there in the world or maybe it is just my inability to use my time wisely. Oh and there is never enough time to read all those books. I really love learning new things, making new things and learning from others. you can find me as bishopstone on ravelry.
