The true harvest of life is is in the tints of the morning and is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

Introducing Christobella, the "Garden Spirit" which I made for Mary, who was my partner in a swap of Art Dolls. She has flown down to Mary's house in Victoria, where I hope that the will enjoy each other's company.

Last week, I went to Sydney for the day with my friends, Heather and Dorothy. We caught an early train and arrived bright and early to make the most of the day. When we arrived, another friend, Anne was waiting for us, so we had a cup of coffee and some banana bread before we started shopping, you need lots of sustenance for a whole day of stamp shopping. After spending much time and money in the first shop, we moved on to the next shop where we also spent lots of time and bought lots more goodies as well. We then went and had a lovely lunch and a big long chat over lunch. From there we said goodbye to Anne and we left for the train station for our trip home.

I have made some cards with the new stamps that I brought, still have lots to try out yet, but I'll do that this week.

I have a friend who is going through some challenges in her life at the moment and I saw this verse and it fitted her situation perfectly, so I made this canvas for her and gave it to her last Saturday. She really did love it which made me so happy too.
I hope that it's some comfort to her in the difficult that that she has ahead.
