Wood-burning at the Allora Winter Festival

It is so good to be home again after a lovely weekend of medieval camping. It was wonderfully relaxing – just what I needed – with good sleeps, hugs and visits with dear friends, and nourishing food cooked over the fire. (I will tell you about it next week.)

We returned home to all our animals safe and sound, gardens flourishing, and four days of wood-burning my heart out in preparation for my first booth at the Allora Winter Festival this coming weekend.

I’ve been invited to present my work at “Meet the Makers”, an event where local artisans give demonstrations on everything from bead-making, knitting, and sewing to painting, chocolate-sauce-prepping and doll-creating. It is such a fun group of women, jolly, hilarious, and talented, and I’m delighted to be part of it. We’re all looking forward to an excuse to spend the day together.

If you are going to be on the Darling Downs this weekend, do pop on by the Allora RSL between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to say hello, learn all sorts of crafts, and catch live music at PJ Travers Park. For more information, visit the Allora Winter Festival Facebook page or visit the pages of some of my fellow artists:

Beads of Ambrosia

Jill Kennett Art Dolls in Cloth

Now I must get back to my wood-burning. Next up – rolling pins!
