We also went to visit the art exhibition, the work was fabulous and so reasonably priced I just had to buy this gorgeous mixed media piece by Jasmine. (Note to self: Must find out her whole name). I need to have it framed and I think a rustic weathered timber frame may suit.
It has stitches in it and buttons, can you see them? Not too far removed from a quilt is it? I fell in love with it straight away.
Tomorrow we have tickets for "The Looong Lunch" to be held at the Grange, it is the most beautiful property and only a few kms from us. The sit down lunch for 100 people will be served in the Ram Sale Sheds I believe. I hope they've swept them.
If last year's lunch is anything to go by it will be a fabulous extravaganza of marron (small fresh water crayfish), beef, lamb, chicken, mangoes, limes, olives and wine all produced in this area. Our climate is almost identical to that of Sicily but a lot of semi tropical produce does well here if it gets extra water. Hence the mangoes.
I'm looking forward to it.
