hooray - sold one of the Kete

Just received a wee cheque from the Wellington exhibition with a lovely letter to say 'wild and wooly' sold at exhibition

Here's the link to the post where I talk about making it and the symbolism.

I am SO thrilled, had a grin from ear to ear when I got the mail! Not sure what happened to the other Kete I sent down - no doubt I will find out soon.

Between that and the exhibition up here I was able to put quite a bit away into the fundraising account for my trip away next year. It is great to see the $ creeping up and knowing I am getting closer to my goal. Quite a way to go yet but am getting there.

Gosh, it's so encouraging!

Artistic Pet Project for Artschool fun

My mentor set a project to do some artistic shots of our pets so here goes...

Hedgewick, the baby Hedgepig

Opal the Cat

I have a 'part time cat', Harry, who visits when he feels like biscuits. He bought me this charming Goldfinch not so long back.
