I have been asked to design something for this years Coonamble Womens Gathering which I have been working on for some time now. The theme this year is 'Moving Forward'. After thinking about cars and spaceships and highrise buildings, I thought the best way forward was to visit our roots (whew - a hard concept for me to grasp)! So I went with growing vegetables, tending to sheep & chickens and concentrating on having our own water supply - ie being a little more self sufficient. Here is an on-the-go snap of some of the things I'm working on. I still have some work ahead of me! If you'd like to go for a relaxing (and inspiring) retreat, there is information on the website www.coonamble.org/wg.
Unfortunately I won't be able to attend myself as I'm off to Houston again, but Carey Gollege, former Honeysuckle Cottage owner, will be teaching the class. There are also loads of other things to do over the weekend including belly dancing & metal work!
