Coming home

We stayed in Orange for an extra day so that we could go to Badlands Brewery and The Agrestic Grocer. It was worth it; beautifully fresh ingredients in delicious breakfasts, and washed down with excellent beers, when the licensing hours allowed.

Look how much Him Outdoors loves it when I take his photo

And these are the fruits of our trip to Orange!

Back to cycling around the local district on my mountain bike, I noticed it has got a touch cooler and autumn is clearly on the way.

I'm really no good at these things, but the emotion was there, when I created this work for my friend who directed me in Gaslight last year. I sat on stage every night as the curtain went up, plying my needle in a cross stitch, which the stage crew unpicked at the end of each show so that I could do it all again the next night. 

I gave it to her when we met up for coffee and cake, and she certainly seemed to appreciate it. So perhaps she's as good an actor as she is a director!
