Really Real

June 24, 2016

This came in the post yesterday.

IMG_3252So now I really really know that I really had an article published that is real. If you like the article you might like to read a post I wrote some time ago on some of the inventions that shaped sheep farming in Australia.

IMG_3250It is heartening to know that I wrote that article as the wordsmithing is currently having a lie down.

IMG_3253This is more my pace at the moment, sharing a little painting inside the lines (or not) with Our Dear Girl.

IMG_3255Here is my witches brew of a side table where things rest rather than are worked on.

IMG_3257Some projects sleep very deeply at the moment.

IMG_3258But there are flowers in wintertime, an unexpected, delightful gift from a friend. It is filled with a sock optimistically cast on but much unravelled.

  1. Congratulations! Great news. I won’t get my Spin Off for a few more weeks…my subscription lapsed (NO idea how that happened)
    So I will just have to wait. I re read your article on how AU sheep came to be, thank you for including it. Rest and things will be better. “All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.”

  2. Congratulations again on your fine article!!
    I do hope you are feeling better and that your weakness will completely subside soon. A major illness just takes so much out of us and makes it harder to snap back.

  3. Huge round of applause!!!!!
    Congratulations I look forward to reading it. its about time we were represented down here. Maybe someone should start an Australian version of a spinning magazine XS

  4. Congratulations on your Spin-Off article- and on being a co-painter (priceless!)

    My 23 year old daughter just mentioned she wanred to work on a charity knitting project with me. That feels even better than sun.

  5. Wonderful and many many congratulations on your article. I have not seen it but will try and find it… The wordsmith herself may be resting but what a proud place to be resting on. Gazing at the creative beautiful objects that you have next to you in baskets and on tables will allow you to absorb, reassess and heal. Sending lots of very best of wishes from Fremantle – Lydia

  6. Congratulations, my dear friend!!! This is so exciting! To be honest, I am surprised while you don’t have your own magazine or a book, because your writing is exquisite!!

  7. Yay! So happy to find you in print, Rebecca.

    There’s is something to be said for the slow marinating of projects. For some a constant nag, for others just a path not taken right now for good reason. Personally I’d put aside finishing a sock for a chance to color in a room with a small person. It’s all about taking a slice of a happy life. Here you are then. Baking your own pie.

  8. I just read your article in Spin-Off last night. Very good. Lots of historical info. Thanks for writing it. Our first day of summer was last week here in CA and its hot enough to believe its here too. Hope your winter is not too wild, but that you get enough rain not to worry.

  9. Congratulations on seeing your article in print. I know things have slowed down but I hope you are recovering well. Time with Dear girl helping paint in, and out, of the lines sounds lovely.
