Ok so I saw this amazing bambi sculpture (below) by Frederique Morrel in a magazine the other day and it took me back to the days when i was working full time on my exhibition (2007), knitting away at stag's heads (above) and guns and sewing up wall hangings and doing all sorts of lovely creative things *sigh*. And well it got me thinking about how funny it is when you think you are being totally original in creating something, when in fact 50 other people have already done it before you and have also actually done it far better than you anyway.
I bought this gorgeous fabric from an op-shop a couple of months ago while on a weekend get-away with my sister in the Grampians. Truly, country op-shopping just can't be beat. So while we should have been taking in the scenery/ going for walks/ breathing in the fresh country air, the two of us took a whole day to scour the op-shops leaving us with bags of stuff in our little moth ball smelling hands. Charming... There were a few highlights within the bags of stuff we collected- this fabric being one of them.
