Travelling in the Winnebago around the Riverina saw us wondering at the size of the grain paddocks. Miles and miles of golden grain fields, set against a backdrop of dark green treeline, and the biggest azure blue sky.
We came across three wedge tailed eagles enjoying the fruits of their kill a baby lamb — in a paddock full of ewes and lambs. Natural selection, I suppose.
The pretty town of Barellan (home of Evonne Goolagong, our famous tennis player) was a delight, as was Condoblin.
Here’s a collage page in my journal of some of our latest days:
I used a stencil I had of an eagle to add the story about the three eagles, and I’m going to add detail with feathers and markings once I get an image to go by.
My Biology practical book was kept by the teacher when I finished matriculation as inspiration for future classes, because of my drawing skill. But that sort of drawing is not what I need for my travel journalling sketching, so I decided to learn about shading, form, and other interesting stuff.
I am reading all I can on my iPad when I can’t sleep, and watching video lessons while the removalists pack the bulk of our possessions for storage.
I packed all my supplies, except the hair dryer, into this rolling trolley full of drawers. I have had it beside my sewing machine with threads, needles, and all things quilty. As I packed the contents, it occurred to me that it was the better solution to journal supplies storage.
It turned out to be very successful.
Here it is closed:

The big yellow and white book is to be my travel journal (an altered book).
Here’s the best bit
This drawer has plastic cups to store pens and pencils. I have looked at so many journaling websites, I can’t remember whose site this idea came from. Perhaps by chance you may know so I can credit her. Thank you to her anyway.
