run around town...

I have just returned from my first evening stroll around the new neighbourhood. My new town is so tiny, you can lap it in less than 20 minutes - that is if you don't have to stop and run around the park with your small person for half an hour... BUT! Let me tell you! This place is amazing!! a brief sunset walk on the footpath that runs around the edge of the town has confirmed that I do indeed need to invest in some REAL equipment of the photographing variety. 

I don't think I have the words to describe how it feels to live in the middle of such an incredibly vast and quintessentially Australian landscape. Red dirt, white cockatoos, blue skies, the silver bark of the gumtrees and the golden glow of the sun. The coast is a good 200km's away from here. Yesterday a tumble-weed rolled down my street! Occasionally stray cattle wander through the town! I am living on the frontier people! This place is hot and unforgiving, but incredibly beautiful.  I am feeling happy, welcome and best of all, I am feeling inspired. 

My home is my little air-conditioned oasis, away from the heat!


I have lots of the new style of dress cut and half finished!

My eyes!

My small!

My new land - Pretty amazing views - Photos from my new local tip! 

On the business front - I have been busy sewing, but I will tell you more about that later. I have arranged a bit of a naughty shorts make-over and I am so excited to cut the ribbon and unveil the new look. Soon! 


I hope you are well and happy, wherever you may be!!
