I am pleased to say that physical isolation has brought about friendship renewel.
Six months ago, we moved from Sydney to set-up our new home in Dungog, N.S.W.
The thought about making this tree-change was in fact a lot scarier than actually putting it into action. Certainly there have been annoying frustrations from unexpected experiences of making a big change in our home-life, but these little hurdles have been overcome or worked around.
The chills of past wintry months have had me reflecting on friendships – old and new. Some have faded through lack of nourishment, and some have new growth.
A friendship grown from past shared textile experiences recently delighted me … by a surprize envelope received in the mail. What absolutely sumptuous velvets and hand-dyed threads and a beautiful fabric postcard my Sydney friend made with such skill and love!
