I have just been for a walk at Yarra Bend park and we got quite close to some rainbow lorikeets (there are some beautiful pictures at this link). They just sat in the branch above our heads and I was able to take a picture despite having to mess around with camera settings in the gathering dark. They were totally unfazed by two humans and a dog looking up at them.
I have finished the pieces I am going to hand in and have them sewn up, ready for mounting. Now I have to work out how I want to do that. Decisions, decisions.
Screen Print has been dominating my thinking this past week - we have to print a repeat length of the design we have come up with, as well as 4 colourways. Those people who think tapestry weaving is slow and frustrating should take a good look at screen print!! There is so much waiting around - and so much that can go wrong. I will be very glad when I have printed the length and can relax again.
