Today I...

drove across to Daylesford, passing through some beautiful rural aussie countryside on the way there.
That's Mount Franklin at the left of photo 1 - an extinct volcano with a picnic ground in the center of the caldera. The hand built stone fences probably date back to the 1800s
Silk paper which is what I was there to teach
had a great time
and
dropped into Spa Quilters for a cuppa and a chat rather than trot straight home

[and there were choc coated shortbreads!! ]

all:
goats, cats, ducks, mini horses, dog and new puppies - present and accounted for and doing fine. No other names for the puppies yet but PND and Brenda are due back on Saturday. Privately I've been calling big, boofy boy #2, "Bear"

This looks very interesting. How? and Why? Love the texture.

Silk paper! Fantastic. Used as paper after the fact, or textile? Or just held and admired as a thing o beauty and a joy forever?

Wow. Pretty paper. And scenery. :)

silk paper can be used for all sorts of things - bags, cards, "vessels" but I mainly chop it up and use it to create framed silk kimono images.

Absolutely beautiful countryside pictures. You just can't beat it can you. And the silk paper looks gorgeous.
