What a weekend!!

Firstly a few pics of the amazing UCI world Championship Road Race, which was held in our little corner of Australia this week. These are from the  260 km men’s road race today around Geelong in beautiful sunny weather.

We were watching on the big hill climb so were able to get photos as they slowed up. You had to be careful not to lean out as they were cycling right on the barriers, especially when the peloton came through:

Unfortunately Cadel Evans was swamped in the sprint to the finish line, but we did get an Aussie third place. This is the photo of the photographic helicopter which got so close to us during the last lap that it blew hubby’s hat off and sprayed us in dust:

This weekend was also the big 5-0 and so we partied Saturday night with friends and family. Someone did take a family photo but I haven’t received it yet so here is one of me and the girls:

And here are some more photos of the fabulous week at the Geelong Fibre Forum. Firstly some photos for our lovely tutor Mary Crehan (I will put the best ones in here and email the rest Mary):

This one was taken during our workshop when Mary was demonstrating the techniques she used in making her ‘stones’ pieces:

I have tons of photos from the fibre forum so I will do a post a day over the next week to show some of the amazing pieces from the different workshops. There was felting, hand & machine embroidery, foiling, masterclasses, discharge, resin, twining, repurposing,  …the final exhibition was truly mind blowing. The shopping was not bad either!!

Off to bed so I can drag myself out at 5.20am for bootcamp.

    Happy b/day, Jo, if it was yours, love your photos. The workshop looks really great too, you were so lucky, I’d love to do more image transfer.
