You will get time eventually Penny - when you are not working full time. but then you will be busy doing the stuff you could not do when you were working. Have you any photos of what you have made already? Barbara Blackwell is in Mooroolbark Melbourne - another Aussie. Have you seen her group on Thread painting? Very clever work. I think Susan T, one of the moderators is an ex-Aussie.
Hi Penny, where in Victoria do you live? I am in Canberra since 1993 but before then we lived in Doncaster, Melbourne. A lot of our family is still in Victoria - most of them actually. QWU is a great resource and you get to meet some lovely people, so welcome.
