UFO Factory

Matt calls this building a UFO Factory. It is actually a unique shearing shed.

" The Deeargee Wool Shed. It was built in 1869 to an octagonal design with a unique 3 tier roof with glass ventilators providing the perfect environment for shearing. It is the oldest and largest shed in Australia and is still in use today. It is a National Trust registered building."

HERE for the www that I found the info...

I took this pic 2 weeks ago. We have no sky for me to take a Sky Watch Friday photo, it has been wet and windy for most of the week.

Only 6 sleeps until our trip!!! NYC here we come!!! :)

Enjoy your weekend!

Thunderbolt went to the Ball

Well the Deb Ball is over!!! It feels soooo good. I think the Ball went really well, it is always hard to get a feel for how things are going when you are 'backstage'.
I guess someone enjoyed themselves and thought Thunderbolt should as well. He is wearing the latest in Deb Ball Tableware... Pink Satin. I overlocked about 140 meters of this pink fabric... such a slow job.
So today, not having Ball stuff to keep me busy, I started to pack. Only 10 sleeps until we start our trip.... soooo excited!!!!

A beautiful Autumn

This Autumn has been beautiful. Not many leaves are left and the wind is picking up so not much more colour is left.
Tafe was great tonight, I loved the exercise we did. I might post it in the next few days.
Tomorrow is set-up day for the Debutante Ball. I am looking forward to the ball being over.... it has been a huge, time consuming task.
This photo is my image for this weeks Sky Watch Friday. For more images from around the world click HERE.

Moonbi Lookout

We stopped at this lookout on the way to Tamworth last week. It had been many years since I had stopped instead of driving past.
Mother's Day stall went well at school yesterday. I am going over again today to see if I can sell a few more items at Recess. A lot of kids forgot money. Normally we don't do the second day, but I over shopped and we had more donations than normal...
Another frost this morning, if the wind stays away it should be a lovely day!
Happy Sky Watch Friday everyone!

I scrapped!

Sunday evening I actually made time to scrap!
Today I had grand plans.... then I was asked to go into work... Can't say no to money! So the housework will wait another day, possibly 2.
Tomorrow is the Mother's Day stall at the school. I have wrapped and ready to go over 240 gifts. I am looking forward to tomorrow. It is so great to see the children so thrilled to be doing something great for the 'Mum' in their life. I must say it will also be good to clear the gifts out of my house and cross it off my list of things to do. It means our trip is just a little bit closer and I get to see my Dad!

My Kandinsky

This is what I learnt at TAFE the other night. How to make your own brushes for photoshop. I wasn't feeling 'into' class that night, so I just used the first photo that came up in my album. That photo was the waterski image below. I used just a small portion of the spray. I was pretty impressed with this little trick! I can see so many ways you could use it... weather I do is another thing :)

I worked this morning, nothing went right!!! I did make it out the other end not to flustered so that was great! Nothing like the smell of photographic chemicals.... ick...

After work my Mum wanted me to see some Jewellery that she found at a craft show. Dichoric Glass pendants. I have often looked at them not knowing what or how they are made... I now own two pendants, I couldn't choose between them. Mum treated me to one, thanks Mum! x I will try and take photos of them, it will be a fun experimental activity.

I snapped this image yesterday morning. I stepped out to get some wood and discovered Jack Frost had paid his first visit of the year. It was rather pretty.
Looking forward to this weekend. I don't have any major plans and home to get this house into some order and get some neglected things taken care of. The joys of owning your own home! :)

Have a great weekend!
