tired of pears yet?


I'm not.  They have a lovely shape - very feminine in form I think.

After drawing yet another pear (not this one) an idea struck me for a challenge my group has set all members of the Embroiderers' Guild NSW.  Having been involved in the set up of the challenge. I was almost over the idea. The general theme is "Changing of the Seasons" and I really wanted to avoid doing something involving flowers - well I haven't but that's OK.  The piece is not due in until September so I have a little bit of time to change my mind.

My camera gets borrowed and every so often I find a pleasant surprise on my camera card

Darjeeling



A family member is in Darjeeling for a while undertaking some studies -  he has posted some marvellous photos on face book.  The views are all so different - this is the entry to Mahakal temple.  The colour  is chaotic and wonderful and reflected in the flags, painted stones and sculpture.

I am really enjoying  using face book  at the moment - its a bit like travels with my aunt - but in reverse - the aunt is at home.
