January Part 3: Relaxing

It's quite a while ago now that we were in Bali........and you know there are days I wish I were still there! Here is the view from our hotel window, overlooking the rice fields.


Our hotel (suite) had a wall of windows, wasn't too much of a chore to wake up in the morning I can tell you. Every morning we swam in the infinity pool, the weather was glorious.  The Balinese people are truly wonderful. Incredibly friendly and deeply spiritual.

A highlight of our trip was a visit to the Neka museum.  Wouldn't want to mess with these dudes!




I loved this astrological piece- so patchwork. 
 
 

The Balinese painting is so finely detailed - and what beautiful colour.



I decided to take some hand piecing to do,  so a couple more  George III circles were completed.
 
 

They were a perfect choice, since I can never get enough direct light when I'm not in my own sewing space.





Mind you I haven't touched this project since I got back - I have another one nearly completed, maybe that's a job for tonight.

The weather has been terribly hot in Melbourne, so not really great for sewing. Wish I could still walk out and jump in that pool.

Stay cool,

Deb
