In my garden,

many things grow. Long grass, weeds, tall, tall trees, short trees and a few flowers.

There’s an old swing frame that predates our occupancy and is about twice as tall as would be permitted these days. At present it has no swing, but the spiders are happy to use it as a frame for their webs.


And judging by the tears in this web, the spiders are doing okay

Bag lady


That’s what I’ve become…and I’m loving it!


This is a modern interpretation of a very traditional bag, the Papua New Guinean bilum. This one comes to me directly from near Mt Hagen, in the PNG Highlands.


This one hasn’t travelled as far but is made using vintage and recycled fabrics. A gorgeous thing.


And this is my new city bag…the one I take to the city when I’m headed for the State Library researching. It’s big enough for an A4 note pad, and smells leather leather leather. And it’s green! yay
