Scorched Earth sold!

I went to pick up my 2 pieces from the Minnawarra Art Awards this morning and found out the quilt (above) was sold. I’m very happy someone liked it enough to buy it, but I know I underpriced it. I was in such a rush getting my entry in and had to price it before […]

Our Exhibition Opens 9th November!

I should be busy working on my pieces for Dimensions but am recovering from having 3 teeth out yesterday. I’ll have to get back to work soon – still have lots to do. At our last meeting some great work appeared for the exhibition so I’m sure it will be worth a visit. On Friday, […]

Our back garden

My lace panel is sent to Wongan Hills for the exhibition there – I’ll take some pics of the finished piece when it returns but I thought I’d show our back garden today as it’s not looking too bad now. Some of our Xanthorrhoeas (grass trees) have grown spears – below. These are native and were here […]

Spring has sprung

This week we’ve had very wintery weather but today was better, so this afternoon we went to Araluen, a garden not far from us, to check out the tulips which were impressive. We unexpectedly ran into DH’s brother and sister in law who were taking his Mum to see the tulips. There were also beautiful magnolias, […]

Exhibition photos

Thank you  for all the encouraging comments on my last post. Here we are at the opening night – below: Rivka’s great food. None left by the end of the evening!  Genesis in the Hills is owned and run by Ita & Rivka who are very community minded and love to support the arts, especially […]

Exhibtion work.

Here is a little sneak peek at some of my exhibition pieces. I’ve spent all of today framing and getting ready – tomorrow we start hanging. It’s going to be a mix of different types of work, some framed, some small quilts and wall hangings a couple of scarves, some old along with the new. […]

Exhibition

Our exhibition invitations have arrived – the front above. It’s at our local vegetarian restaurant, opening 30th July. So I’m frantically busy trying to get things finished and some framed. It will be a mix of new and some older work. The weekend after, I’ll be at the Craft Fair at Claremont Showgrounds from Friday […]

Rich in Stitch Exhibition

Our exhibition finished yesterday so here are a few pics. It was a great gallery space and the work was beautifully displayed. You probably can’t see the individual pieces very well but top left are 2 of my favourites. They’re by Juliet and are both felt pieces. Another, I liked very much was Margaret’s 4 […]

New covered sketchbooks

I was asked to do some more of these for a gallery shop. These are the first 4. They were photographed tonight so the colours might be slightly off but I’m going to take them in tomorrow and won’t have time then. Top: commercial fabrics pieced and stitched with some block printing and beaded braid […]
