Four days of freedom from my boys!!!!!

I thought it was only a dream....but I have awoken and it is real.....I am about to have four days of peace and quiet....with only the pets for company.

Anthony is packing the car, Kai and Taj are running around like chickens at a KFC convention and I am planning my days of nothing! Well actually that is not quite true, I have heaps of things planned, but none of them involve cleaning, cooking or settling disputes between little people.

Today sees me joining a girlfriend for lunch...actually I may kidnap her and make her come look at some art stuff...which will be torture for her...sorry Trish! Saturday may see me off doing art, Sunday is definitely art and Monday will probably be felting...or maybe dyeing of wool if I get some wonderful info to inspire me....we shall wait and see.

I shall post photos of the weekends activities (all I hear is Anthony yelling at Kai to let Taj go.....LOL....), sorry it's too funny to listen downstairs....did I mention they are driving 580km today....all the way to Hopetoun. If you listen hard, I'm sure you will hear the screams of small children and one frustrated dad!

Blog #1......How Exciting!!!!

After a much thought and no action, I have finally done the blogger thing!! I suppose the hardest thing about writing a blog, is not knowing if anyone else is ever going to read it. That doesn't bother me, as my rambling thoughts can run wild and free. If nothing else, this can be an online diary which one day my kids can either be ashamed of....or maybe enjoy!

I am Tanya Peters, an Australian Feltmaker who lives in Perth, Western Australia. Felt is my passion, along with all forms of textiles and fibre art. I have two little men (and one big one), who I am lucky enough to be able to raise, while my hard working husband works fly in and fly out. I am on the committee for Fetwest, which is our felting organisation here in WA.

Creating is a part of my life. I must create to feel's just one of those things about me. If I am not creating art, I am cooking, rearranging the garden or teaching. I suppose we all have our callings and this just happens to be mine!

Hopefully this will be the first of many posts, so for now, so's time to make the school lunches!!!
