I've had to spend most of Saturday and Sunday writing reports and I'm still nowhere close to repairing all the damage that was done when my home was flooded...but I have had a nice weekend anyway!
I've been admiring this lovely begonia as I've been working on my computer:
I have also managed to get out to a jewellery workshop at Fremantle Arts Centre where I've had fun playing with texture:
(These are little copper samples that I embossed with an onion bag, some upholstery fabric and a dried leaf.)
started to make a new silver ring:
and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings:
(This carved lino floor was installed in the Centre's main hallway as part of an exhibition which was held at the end of last year. Isn't it gorgeous?)
Importantly for me and for my sense of well being, I have been listening to Pema Chodron, a Buddhist nun, who has, I think, a fantastic perspective on life and its challenges.
It's also become cold enough in the morning to wear scarves. Hooray!
(I'm currently crocheting this Sweet Lorraine scarf. It's my second ~ I really like the pattern.)
...and I am just about to eat a large piece of delicious home~made white~chocolate cheesecake.
(Thank you Nikki!!!!)
I hope, dear readers, that your weekends have been full of simple sweetness too.
