Knowing the temperatures will drop even lower next month, I went shopping for a new coat. A coat with down filling was recommended and luckily I had the expert advice of the lovely Ugtaa as I was hopeless at telling the difference, by feel, of either a down fill or polyester fill! We did look at many coats but came back to the first two to make a decision! Isn't that often the way?

This is the access road to our apartment block. The National Theatre is on the right and another building construction on the left. I need to watch carefully where I step as the ice is slippery.
The cars have packed down the snow into ice sheets.

Indigo was featured at a few booths that carried ethnic minority made items. In the past it was the colour of workers garments so is not as popular as it is in the West. Above photo was taken with permission from Wei Xianglong who has an online store wutuwusheng.taobao.com
Now if only I could read Chinese!
More lovely jewellery items using old embroidered textiles.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to Geelong to see the exhibition, but if you get the chance to visit enjoy the work. Below is a detail from Tangled, used in the promotion of the exhibition.
