Spring has sprung in the Blue Mountains……and the nights are lit with starlight.
On my walks, I collected rocks to grind into ochre to die my paper for Shifu.

    Shifu is hand spun paper thread. See http://lizz-aston.blogspot.com.au/2010/12/hand-spun-shifu-paper-thread.html
    It is fairly simple but laborious to make, and somehow very satisfying.
