"A portrait of my family, once a week, every week, in 2013."
Maxi: His luxuriously soft fur and trademark black goatee are two of my favourite features. Here he waits to see if Byron will open the iron gate so he can make a speedy escape
Coco: Tomorrow marks one month since we first laid our eager eyes upon her quizzical frown after much discussion on whether we should adopt a puppy. Here she waits for Maxi to make his dash out the gate, watching intently with her floppy left ear that she is unable to extend. That gorgeous frown and her floppy left ear, two of my favourite features.
Byron: A momentary glance downwards to decide on the placement of his feet as he made his way carefully along the grassy headland during our morning stroll through the national park.
Bella (and Coco): Byron took this picture of an unsuspecting me as I walked with the puppy along a grassy hill, interspersed with white and orange rocks and overlooking a gorgeous blue jewelled sea.
I'm feeling inspired. Today was a beautiful day and as I gratefully sit here, cross-legged on my bed with a small hand-painted Turkish bowl containing the last of my modest handful of fresh blueberries, I am proud of myself for beginning one of my projects for 2013. I've started sewing my very first patchwork quilt for Byron. It only took me twenty odd years to get around to making the templates and rolling my razor sharp blade through pieces of nautical-themed fabric. Anchors, life buoys, ships with white sails.
Oh how I love the sea...
