The end of July ....had enough of the cold.


A view of the sea from Kakanui taken at the end of the summer by my husband. I love the architectural quality of the lines and the textures.
I'm plodding away on two commission pieces and some spinning for clients.
The suri shawl in the previous post won a first prize and the colour award at the alpaca conference which was really exciting. Mostly I'm grateful to have submissions accepted for various shows so a prize (or two) is a lovely bonus.
The rest of my time has been spent doing the mundane trivia of everyday life.
However, I'm escaping for a couple of hours every Thursday evening to a painting class and I might even post what I'm working on, maybe....

Hi Doe,
Thanks so much for your visit and fun to meet up with you both. I mentioned to you that I had found Simon Leach on the internet, so here is a link for you:

I hope to get up to Oamaru fairly soon and will try and make it a day when you are there at your workshop as it would be really nice to see what you are up to.

Best Wishes,

Peter and Laura
