Kakadu!

Kakadu!

I am gearing up for my first boutique markets (can’t wait Mathilda’s Markets!!) and crossing my fingers for Finders Keepers, so it’s been flat strap on the sewing / creating front. With a super-busy house, and my daytime job as a scientist, it’s a little hard to get in the swing of crafty things at night after the tribe has gone to bed.

Enter the documentary.

I have a fab little studio at home where I create  fab frocks, art, brooches and gorgeous homewares for  This Grand Life, and I can sit for hours sewing up a storm.

It can seem a little quiet at night though, and there are times when the couch beckons me, come, sit down and relax…

Which is when watching great documentary can be a great way to change tact, wash away the day, and get creative.  This week I have been watching  Kakadu via ABC iview (how great is iview by the way!) as I stitch away. It’s brilliant stuff, filled to the brim  with amazing, funny, talented people from the Top End, action (the bushfires, catching and tagging crocs), interesting info about the spectacular landscape that is Kakadu. Add to this learning about the Traditional Owners, laughing along with the rangers at the antics of the tourists (loved the piece about the tourist who broke his ankle but was more concerned about ‘hot sand’), and you’ve got a great doco.

It’s pure gold.

Almost makes me want to move to the Top End.

Almost…

Have you seen a great documentary lately?

Enjoy xx
