Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Weaving in and out and feeling your way round

Quite a novel way to do things but that is exactly what I did a few days ago when I went round with an eager group of women to Nehru Place, the quintessential place for weaves, silks, cottons, shawls and scarves, upholstery, broderie anglaise and applique work. Running your finger tips across the fine cotton and feeling the weight of the silk and the brocades, the embroidery and the beading and getting a feel for the weight of a fabric, the way it falls and then letting your mind run away with what you can create from it.
All this under the instructive and creative eye of Ros Miscamble, an Australian friend with fabulous taste who creates lovely linen and cotton dresses tops and trousers from her many trips to this fascinating place. You could say she was a fabric fiend and it would be a real compliment. So rich pickings of that day for you:
