Lily was inspired by a Manga drawing book at our friends home in Southern Germany. Such a different style and she took it up so quickly. Fascinating for me is the eye mind hand sequence of drawing, I celebrate her skill!
I would like to practice more. X
But here we are
Thinking a lot of home and our return in a couple of weeks
What is happening in my garden?
Many stories not shared, I can’t claim I am a proficient travel writer!
Four people in a small space, so much outside to see and explore, where is the plug anyway?
Packing sorting packing
Being held lovingly by a friends home
Watching Lily make a travel bag for her birthday dolls and small things
The treadle machine is a new experience and has a gentle sound and rhythm
I am impressed with her independent skill revealing itself with sewing this project
She began as a wee girl sitting on my knee ‘steering’ fabric or ‘driving’ the peddle for me
Look at her now!
Drawn After visiting Jugiong on the Murrumbidgee river and reading stories about bushrangers in the area in the late 1860’s. as we left town the Yass-jugiong-Gundagai mail coach pulled up at the pub drawn by two grey horses. Happy lily!
