Every time I write a blog post I end up apologising for the length of time between posts. Well I shouldn't I know , what can I say except we all have busy lives.  I will try to think of this blog more like a diary, what has been going on every week in my sewing room and what beautiful progress in class by my very talented  students .
Okay Deb a new positive direction... lets go....

Stay tuned as I have lots of new teaching opportunities and very exciting times for me  coming in the near future.


On October 4 John and I with 2 great friends of ours ventured off to Vietnam. First stop was Singapore. What an amazingly efficient city I loved it .. a train every 3 minutes. We fitted in so much and here are just some quick visuals .

We had the have that iconic photo at departures.....

Beautiful street art

inspiration everywhere
Loved the old architecture

 Modern marvels
sky garden spectacular

go to Singapore and not see the orchid garden .. no way  

a magical instillation of old pots and pans

getting my feet sucked by fishes.....

Then off to Vietnam

We went with Intrepid tours for a  10  day trip then had a week on our own

  John and I did everything  rode push bikes, motor bikes, tunnels, museums, ate everything even frog, ate street food, had a home visit dinner, loved it all. A spectacular country with beautiful people and Crazy traffic......

a marriage that has lasted a very long time so beautiful. He is 93 and his bride is 87 and they still tend to their farm everyday , so inspirational....

Graduating students   4 roses and an old thorn !!!!!

Rice fields

8 million scooters in Saigon , a challenge to cross the roads there ...

Cat Ba island our last stop for Rand R

This photo is my favourite of the trip I think. John and I kayaking on Halong Bay at sunset not a worry in the world , really being in the moment. Pure Joy.....

John and I have not travelled overseas much at all BUT I think this will all change....

Month by month in my regular once classes, the work being produced blows me away.
