I'm shop girl here today at the Tweed Valley Artist's Co-op Gallery, at Tyalgum. We have a tiny room at the side of the Tyalgum Community Hall, which was built in 1908.
It's quite a contrast to our cheery gallery, with it's colorful variety of arts and crafts from all over the Tweed.
I think today will be quiet, it's rather wet, but that doesn't always keep visitors away. They come over the Border Ranges from Queensland looking for lunch, or come from the south on the way to somewhere else. But I have plenty to keep me busy and happy. When I need to stretch my legs, there's this wonderful view to enjoy.
|I have my knitting...|
Or I can work on my tiny scrap houses when I've had enough of knitting. It's a pleasant place to be, with some mellow music playing in the background and the rain falling gently outside. I can concentrate just on my knitting or sewing, unlike at home, where I'd be aware there's dusting or ironing to be done (not that it necessarily would!). So it's like a little holiday out of my usual routine.
Aah, there's a step on the stair, and the bell has been rung, it sounds like I have a customer.
