What could be more beautiful than a mother and child. A child cradled in the arms of the one who gave it life and nurishes it. Love!
A friend of mine has a collection of hundreds of mother and child images. I loved the concept and decided to collect pictures of mother and child - some from the museums in Paris, a park in Norway, a spa in Budapest, even down town Sydney!
When a small garden was made as a focal point outside my bedroom window a few years ago, Husband decided that I needed a mother and child statue in the middle. We were at the Eden garden centre the other day and he called me over all excited....he had found the mother and child statue!! so here it is! I love it.

mmmm...yum! a lifesaver with freckles....how fun. so is floating 'round the pool. I tried it out with flippers today. It gives more resistance to the muscles and tricks them into thinking they have done some work! so half an hour walking in water....fun! While I was trying not to watch the clock, a big white cockatoo flew over and a feather floated free from him. I thot he was leaving me a gift, but the breeze caught it and it floated upward and away. It looked so beautiful. It reminded me of the begining and ending of Forest Gump.

All my sewing buddies came for lunch today. Being school holidays, there were as may kids as adults. They all had a wonderful time in the swimming pool. Its SO warm ~ 31 'C . I got my swim after everyone had cleaned up and left, and Pete came home from a motor bike ride. 'Twas heavenly!
Everyone is keen to start sewing, so we should have something to show soon. as soon as I finish my holiday....we have 2 weeks at SWRocks coming right up!

"Will you have this dance?" he said. And he took me away to another place, a place where the mind is free.
What is free?
Sure I am free to think what ever I want to...but my mind controls my body and my actions. it controls my destiny. What I think....therefore I am.
Many thots are burdensome, provoking unhealthy consequences.....so come join the dance and fly away with me!

I also plan to create them all in fabric and put them into a quilt ~ Sydney to Hobart.
This could almost pass for the Mediterranian!! but no, its our south coast. See the new 'S' bridge. Were walking on Bald Head.....no maybe it was Bald Hill!

New Years Day.....sleeping off last year? or just sleeping your life away....I learned that the koala has a piece of cartlage on their back end so they don't get a numb bum! so he's very comfy! Fun to have family come to visit. Gets us out doing touristy things in our own city. We always love the harbour.
