it has been raining here at Woodford for nearly two weeks. strong, soaking rain. sorting through all my bits, ideas started to make their way to my creative self.... grab bits of this and that, I heard. take some ribbon:
add some buttons:
buttons that were rescued from Nana's clothing or gathered from various jaunts to junk shops. way back in times before it was trendy to gather bits like this:
you can even add a buckle or two if the whim takes you there:
get to work, tying knots, sewing buttons and if you can find an old crystal chandelier prism, you can add that.. until you get it just how you want it.. then you ask Buddha, if he would mind being a model yet again. -
after that, you can gather together broken bits of old jewellery...a kilt pin, some brass rings. old buttons, chains and a crystal prism. And you can make yourself a gorgeous pin to adorn a winter woolie. enjoying the sound of the rain as you go
we visited Paul yesterday.. the preliminary report says stage 4 malignant tumour. Next week they meet with the oncology team to see what can be done. He is a bit disorented from the surgery and has lost some movement to his left side. I saw Paul's eyes yesterday and he is scared. Please keep them in your prayers and heart. Miracles do happen, don't they?
there is a National Day of Mourning today here in Australia. For those who lost their lives in the Victorian bushfires. I will light a candle on my altar.
