Still here

It's not that there hasn't been anything to blog lately... just no time in which to do the blogging. 
 The last couple of weeks have been a blur.  Lots of book-writing and trying to squeeze out one more pattern before Christmas... burning midnight oil and the candle at both ends. And life... lots of ordinary, everyday school runs, supermarket shopping and laundry.  
 But there was also cake.  
 Adele (who left us to return to New Zealand a few months ago) popped in. Adele and I share a birthday, and although it isn't the date yet, the lovely girls in the office decided that we should still have cake.

There was also an exhibition opening.  It's by a group of RMIT Textiles alumni, based around the theme of Suspension.  Stunning work and good friends. 
This work is by Lucy Hardman.  It is beautiful.  My friend Marion 's work really moved me, too... but I didn't manage to get a good photo of it. 
If you're in Melbourne and into textiles and/or sculpture, do make the trip to Tinning St gallery.
...just don't take a bored 7-year-old with you (this was the best behaviour of the evening).
Oh - and there was also a long-overdue trip to the hairdressers.... and the need for another mug-shot.
Ok.. back to the book-writing, for me.

I think I've come to rely on your Facebook presence more than here! FB is easier though, hence my lack of blogging for oh so long!!
