Family Matters (To some people)

1920 was the year of my grandparent"s Wedding and 90 years later my dad is still going quite strong although plagued with that nasty lung disease, Asbestosis. We had a most precious time with him when we recently visited Adelaide where he lives (which is a 1.1/2 hour plane ride away from where we live in New South Wales, Australia, sharing stories and lots of laughs over many cups of tea.

It was also great to meet Judy (and Nev), a blogging friend of mine over coffee one afternoon where we chattered our heads off over one hundred and one things all related to our creative fibre work. So many ideas and plans were discussed for future sharing of our work.
Now back at home I'm working on the last 2 pages of my Fabric Art Journal which I will be posting in the next day or so.
