getting ready for Halloween!
One thing I have come to realise, is that my passion for SHEEPIES started long before 2011 - The Year of the Sheepies; and continues now into 2014. Driving along in country NSW, I am constantly calling out 'Sheepies!!!", much to the consternation of my co-driver and new partner, Laz. He indulges me in this obsession and has pointed out one or two new sheep related items from time to time.

from the steps of the National War Memorial
We had a day trip to Canberra, our Nation's Capital. Now that I know what to expect, I'll be heading back again to look at more. We spent the morning at the National War Memorial - (absolutely gob-smackingly amazing experience. Very highly emotionally wearying, but well worth the visit. I cannot speak more highly of the staff and volunteers.)
Then a couple of hours at the National Gallery to see the Inca Gold Exhibition - just enough time to duck into the Australian Art section on the 2nd floor to see Art that is imprinted on my mind through reading about it in books... (reminds me - must get back to the Victorian Art Gallery.....)
Then a quick trip up to the lookout to snap a couple of scenic views- including this selfie:
Hope you have all enjoyed my snap-heavy post ... next one to show a bit more stitching...
