I've not been at my bench at all over the last couple of weeks as I've been travelling around in Sydney, the mid-north coast of New South Wales and the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.
Although the travelling had a purpose, it vaguely resembled a holiday, which isn't something I've had for a long time.
We saw all sorts of interesting and beautiful things along the way, so I thought I'd share some of them with you.
Above are some images mostly from my old stomping ground of Sydney, where we went to the MCA and made an unplanned visit to the Vivid Festival.
In the image above, below left is a truly gorgeous little beach in the Royal National Park in Sydney. The rest of the images are around the Yorke Peninsula in SA, where we visited a few old towns and even went fishing.
We also spent hours exploring the site of an old school in a bit of bush at Clements Gap on the Yorke Peninsula. The school closed in 1942 and one of the old pupils has adopted the area and made a lot of signage and sculptures to keep the memory of the place alive.
It's a very strange and fascinating place - well worth a visit if you're ever in the region.
Back to work
Now I'm back from my travels I'm about to get stuck into a whole lot of work, including getting started designing a new range of handmade jewellery.
