Are we there yet?

Augh.... hello blog followers. Wednesday and feeling very much like hump day. Why? It's a beautiful warm sunny day. Because I have been trying to make mini flowers. Irises to be specific. And not very easy instructions. And flower making IS NOT my thing... They have been pushed aside for now. Which is why it has taken me a good two years to get to this point:

It has been a long and taxing 5 months and I am finding it a little hard to find motivation and inspiration. Also I have SO MANY unfinished projects that I have decided to finish a few things off before starting anything new. Baby steps I am telling myself.

At the end of last year, I made up some little 1:24 suitcases. They are yet to find homes (and yet to be finished), but I really like how they turned out. Made from little bits I had around the mini stash, and mostly just printed paper stuff.

I spent much of my summer either at my mum's farm, which was under bushfire threat for the best part of four months, or working for the government department responsible for managing the bushfires. It was rewarding but also tiring. We had the odd little critter come visit, including this little sweetie. It makes nice break during a long day. 

Anyway, I hope your time in isolation, wherever you are in the world, is going well. Look after yourselves.
