Hi there yogis,
Have you noticed – Christmas has come super early this year.  The only thing that has not arrived is the carolling and the check out attendants in antlers!  This has brought to my mind the fact that the days are rushing forward, and have I got my will organised?  Yes, I have but have you?  

A few years ago I published a “LITTLE BLACK BOOK” in which you could write all the important things that need to be passed to your relatives and loved ones  in the event that your last Christmas comes too soon.  It is on Etsy, and I am updating it at the moment, and will let you know when it is done.   One of the ladies in our Sewing Bee is a professional Will Consultant and that brought it to front of mind.

I have had a death in the family – my email YOGAFIRST@NETCON.NET.AU – delete it from your contact books etc.  I should have ditched it when they had their last hiccup, but this is the end of a long friendship.  They are now organised from Singapore, and do they care NO THEY DON’T.  They are now part of TPG.  So beware.

If you want to email me, stay with YOGAFIRST2@BIGPOND.COM


Windarring Yoga –  Tues. x 2 +Thurs. x 1. (some Fridays)

STUDIO YOGA WOODEND: Monday Hatha 1pm (full) 2.15 Wed. Restorative 1pm.  

TAROT READINGS AT THE STUDIO – Look forward to hearing from you.  You can even come on the weekends, and I can do “doubles” – you and mum, maybe you and a friend.

THE YOGA LUNCHEON:  As always the last Saturday in the month.  The next at 12noon the 28th October – PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY NOW.. I have booked for us to go to  The Full Moon in Woodend.  Warm, “homey” and great food. I love the Nachos – with chicken – with prawns – vegan, or Mexican.  Any of them are great.


If your treasured items need re-imagining and mending, come see me – please make an appointment first.. I am pretty well booked until the end of October (unless you are a regular who needs a skirt/pants tweaked), so keep that in mind. SEWING BEE SUNDAY AT 2.30 at my studio, 37 Morris Road, Woodend.  I will be working on another quilt.  Last night I just had to quit because my fingers were aching from the hard stitching.  But it will be done.

A note to quilt owners.  If you have a cherished quilt, please check it regularly for wear and tear especially along all the seams.  Once they get to a certain stage they are a lifetime’s work just keeping them intact.  If yours was a gift to others, it does take away the need to worry about christmas gifts, because there will always be repairs needed on the quilt.


STEAM PUNK PARADE – this is still on the drawing board and we are in discussions with the Full Moon Saloon.  I want to include young designers, sponsor a prize for a new talent, and perhaps morph into a Sewing Bee style competition..  Watch this space and keep on stitching!!!!

SEE YOU IN THE STUDIO (and at the yoga lunch at the end of the month)
