    Down Under Day 6 and 7

    It’s been a quick week but today I was able to round up and finish the cairns piece. I ended up getting to use my banding trick, which I have been wanting to try but needed the right circumstance. The basketry image I was chasing for this one seemed suited to utilizing this banding weave. I’ve been saying

     
     

    Down Under Day four and five

    I’ve got to remind myself that A) Light switches are upside down to me here and b) the cars and people are coming in the opposite direction.

    In total what would have taken one 24hour block of travel to reach Cairns stretched into two. My first connection in Dallas narrowly missed my flight to Australia, stranding me and about 30 other Qantas passangers in Dallas for 24hours. With 12hours to kill before another 20hours of flying I decided to rent a car Read more...
