ansies WARNING Info about indigenous plant materials and weaving could e highly boring for those non weavers out there.. Tune out now...Started this about 22 weeks ago, picked it up again today and added more Juncus, Microlaena, Kunzea and Allocasuarina (sheoak). Stitched together with cotton thread, wool, sisal yarn..
Interestingly the Kunzea I used months ago was fresh and the leaves are still green, although they fall off if touched too much.. The Juncus had of course shrunk but was easy to add more dried material. The Microleana is a grass which I had dried this time instead of using dead stuff from plant, some of it stayed green. This will be a wall hanging.. I will add a frame at back for strength.

  •   sejkko So sweet to see this loving exchange and by the looks of it - you will need some fresh lemongrass tea. Why do we always eat all possible dessert thingies in Xmas? I blame my aunt Fernanda for my sweet sins of yesterday. Lemongrass tea 1d
  •   ansies I will pick some fresh from the garden Manuel @sejkko thank you for advice! I love how you blame your aunt! Haha. Why do we do it?! Tradition and it tastes SO GOOD. No rational thought involved. 1d

ansies Spent this evenings Christmas Eve with Billie and Mark having fish and chips in the middle of the local deserted footy oval overlooking the mountains. Played a little soccer (b's fav), went for a stroll and picked some beautiful sheoak foliage and euca flowers while Billie collected leaves and filled her pockets. Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas. 3d

ansies Made this. Because I'm really just a #hippieatheart.. Although I don't believe in the power of crystals even though I collect them for their beauty and I do t believe in 'free love' although I probably would have got involved if I was around in the 60s... #whatsahippieanyway? I love Mother Earth baby 🌞 5d

ansies Regram from @egetal This incredible ring was made by @camillagough an amazing jeweller/artist from Melbourne. Camilla made my engagement ring which I appreciate the beauty of everyday. She sells some of her work at Egetal who are running a comp #egetaladornme so this self confessed jewelry addict is #inittowinit 1w
