So I tracked down some photos of the Tuscany region, printed them out as “brain food” and got Tony to help me sift through my canvas stocks till we found some the right size. This afternoon I got into my art room and really went for it. I am really pleased with the result – it’s red, it’s Tuscan and it’s done! (okay, except for the edges, the signature, the sealant…)

My big art weekend
“Labour day, schmabour day
What a dumb day
To hire some poor jerk and then send him away
To celebrate work by playing all day”.
Apologies to Garfield and Co if that’s not quite right. Anyway …
I love Labour Weekend. I get to whip through the laundry etc and then spend 2 1/2 days in my art room making stuff – mess, flags (new one above – based on a flag Burma had when Japan was in control in the 1940s), postcards, maybe even a painting or some patchwork. How cool is that? Have a great weekend everyone.
Flags, and Myanmar
Hospital watch, and creating
Well, Mum has not been to hospital since late February. We managed to get right through winter with no dramas. Amazing. We had been going to hospital very very regularly from late 06 through till Feb.
But the dry spell has been broken. Yep, she went off in the ambulance this afternoon (with my husband driving). Seems like most of the problems may stem from being dehydrated, but that also means her meds need adjusting – which is always a bit of a nightmare.
Reaffirmed with the doctor that Mum is not for resuscitation – always a hard thing to do, but she is so very clear in her wishes. So, fingers crossed…
And doing some quilting
Pulling the wool over my eyes ;-)
The All Blacks LOST
I am not a huge rugby fan, but I do try to watch the All Blacks big games.
We lost the World Rugby Cup quarter final against France this morning. France were better than us today, simple as that.
It’s a big thing for New Zealand, our tourism board has put huge $ into promoting us in France over the last 2 weeks of the Cup – hope the investment still pays off. This is a great place to visit…
