What is ART?

What is Art?
Who says it is Art?
How do we know it is Art?
Is it art?
And when does it become worth a lot of money?

When you walk in to art galleries and look at all the abstract
art work, knowing how much people pay for most of them even
little ones can be worth millions. These questions must go around
in your head too?
There is a big story behind this piece of artwork, but will not go into
that right now.

Wonder if one day if this one will be worth millions?

SOOO cute aren't they?

A week has gone by since our holiday ended and
I am finding it hard to get back into "real life mode"
So once again I don't have a card or craft to show
so I thought i would show some more of the holiday
snaps of our adventure

Helene
and Me

To our surprise shortly after we took these photos we were
allowed to go into this enclosure to see them up close
while the workers changed the leaves to fresh ones
and clean up . It was a very special treat
(specially after going to another koala park that
morning and the one Koalas we could see were of in the
distance rolled up tight sleeping )

Have you ever been Lost in something?

Well I sure have . Back in early 1992, there was a picture on
my husbands computer of a Lost in Space robot.
I would look at it and think that would make a great
counted cross stitch pattern. (back then i did not have a
cross stitch converter for the computer (and don't know if they
even existed )). So I got out my graph paper taped it together
to to be 360 squares times 400 squares ( i think it was )
and sat in front of the computer zoomed into the corner of the picture
and started pixel by pixel putting in on to paper (crazy i know )
took a week of solid working on it .
The week was a very long week not to mention the time of stitching
on to black adia (14 count) For the next 8 months I worked on the
x stitching of it and then it was finally finished and went of to the
framers. And here is the finished picture.




More of lost in space things on my blog (Cricut related not x stitch)

What a wonderful week I have had.

I have just had a wonderful week.
My girlfriend Helene from USA came over here for
a visit with us. We had so much fun playing
Showing her the places that we love to visit.
We got to feed the birds on Monday

On Friday we got to feed the Kangaroos

Saturday we finally went down to see our local beach

Helene made me this wonderful Robot quilt
and our friend Lill and Helene brought me this cute
robot (which i tucked up in bed every morning to
look after the quilt (which i will show the photo
of the quilt better when i take more photos)

The birds are soo used to being fed


Helene is now on her way back to USA and
I am finding it very hard to get back out of holiday
mode (all those who have emailed me questions
over the past week and bit sorry for the delay in
answering them i will work on them in the next day or two
)

Are Choclates better than Flowers?

Ok Hard question so I picked both only
thing is i made the flowers out of card so they would
last forever and cadbury roses chocolates chocolates
to last next to no time.

Here is a little welcome present i made for my friend



Not only filled the box with roses chocolates but also
added some cherry ripe chocolates too
