R.I.P. Zoe

After arriving in Darwin and sleeping for most of the afternoon yesterday, I got a call from my parents. They'd taken our dog, Zoe, to the vet earlier and had her put down. She was old, she was sick, and it was well past time. I'm still sad though.

I wish I had a picture of her with me to post, but I don't.

Anyone available should go to my house in Melbourne and hug my other two dogs for me, because I can't for another four weeks. :(

Exhaustion

Today was the big day. I finally handed in my four entries for the Linden Postcard Show. Of course, my final entry didn't get completed until 3pm, at which point I had to stretch it over a canvas frame then secure hanging devices on the back of each piece. So at 4pm, I headed out the door and to the tram stop.

I took a few more photos before I left though:

Here is I Hart Wayne in her frame:



Someone from Craftster also asked to see some close-up shots of the stitching, so here they are:









And as if that wasn't enough pictures in one post, here's another -- the piece I completed today, called (No) Threads It's a stencil and embroidery on linen. Be warned, it's also a very nude man, hence the buffer space...





















And that is all. I fly to Darwin at 7:10am tomorrow morning, so to compound my current state of exhaustion, I have to get up at some ungodly hour to get to the airport on time. And I still have to make two bags before I go, and finish packing. Oh joy. Wish me luck.
