EditI had a llittle break from my sewing for a few days this week when I had to drive to collect my mother after she had spend some time with famnily. Distances in Australia are a fact of life we live in a country that is larEditEditge and getting around it takes time. My Mother was staying some 600kms away in Walgett, so I drove up to her on Friday , and back home Saturday. The drive is a good oppportunity to see the state of the the changing landscape
The lovely mountain vistas , this is at Hartley about 1 .5 hours into the drive.
I decided to take photos on my trip just to record the landscape this is a trip I do infrequenlty but its a trip into my past.
The change was so striking the lovely rolling hills gave way to the barren dry Walgett region.
When I got onto the last piece of road to my destination I was horrified at the carnage I saw . Where kangaroos that had been hit by( I am assuming trucks) littered the road and then swarms of bugs sacrificed themselves on the front of my car. A big change from busy city driving .
The time spent with people who have known me forever in a place that holds so many memories is one thing that feeds my soul . Sewing and creating is another. What are the things that are important for your creative process ?
A long trip allows for lots of thought.Reflection is often helpful I find ,and spending time with family is wonderful, and always enriching . The trip home was uneventful my mother was also astounded at the change in the landscape. The First thing I did when I got home was take the car to the car wash to rid of bugs.
I will post my next creation soon .
