This is the November page I received from Helga in Germany. If you click on it you will see the embroidered cat 'Paul' which belongs to her neighbour.
She also sent me this postcard with the explanation of the page on the back of it. Both very nice.
My November page had to be about a Van Gogh landscape, which I needlefelted, using both the embellisher and a hand needle. You can see the picture I was trying to depict in the photo below!
There has not been a lot of activity around here lately. I seem to have spent my time going to doctors trying to get my legs to work properly! Shall just have to put up with everything for a while, the soonest I can get in to see the next specialist is mid February. Christmas activities are going to be minimal this year I suspect - too hard to walk far, so everyone will get gift vouchers to spend on what they want. Actually the older grandchildren will get cash in the hand - they like that better than anything as they are always saving for some project. I remember when our boys were small they used to spend half the year working out what they were going to buy with the money they knew they would get from their grandparents at Christmas - the priorities changed frequently, but they had months of fun planning!
We actually have a bit of cloud cover today and managed 2 mm rain! This October/November had been so dry and with strong northerly winds blowing the garden is desperately dry. At least we can water and save plants - the hinterland has quite a few bushfires burning, some lit deliberately. That is so awful for the landholders trying to keep fodder for their stock.
Now I am off to my workroom to see what inspiration I can drum up.
