Thoughts, musings and happenings from a feminist composer.

It seems that two out of three of the scarves I submitted for the Melbourne Scarf Festival have sold. That is, they weren't there when I went to check out the exhibition yesterday, so I'm assuming that's what happened to them. (pre-emptive YAY!)

The festival was interesting. Most items were somewhat expensive I thought, although I think mine were a little underpriced. It's hard to price handmade items properly and yet still expect people to buy them. There was a good turnout, and probably hundreds of scarves, all hung in colour groups from the ceiling. It was a beautiful display.

Pope Joan is going along still - to say it is going well would be nice, but how does one judge that? I enjoy working on it when I do; it feels good, it feels like it's going as it should be. External constraints - i.e. Masters degree deadlines - are what's making me feel otherwise. I'm a little peeved by this. Art should be allowed to develop at the pace it needs to develop at. Determining or predicting this pace is just about impossible. I envisaged that this piece would take six months - it's taken 16 1/2 so far. It will be lovely when it's finished though - I do know this, and it brings me some comfort...

A few weeks back I mentioned that my dad had bought me a venetian glass tree pendant. Here is a picture of a similar one that I found online: .

My naturopath thinks I have strep throat. Today I am marginally better, but at this rate won't be fully well for another 5-6 days or so, I think. It's a nasty nasty thing - yesterday I had massive attacks of dry, tickly, scratchy coughing - actually, it had kept me up the night before. Luckily some liquid zinc from the naturopath seemed to clear that up by this morning.
