Printed tags

A couple of pages in my visual diary – I’ve used my Gelli plate as a stamp and rolled excess paint onto the page.

Gelli printing again

We’ve had several days of lovely spring-like weather and I’ve been in the studio doing some Gelli printing on iron-on interfacing as seen on the Gelli blog. Back left of the pic is my sketchbook. Interfacing is harder to print on than paper or smooth fabric – I found a few layers of printing worked […]

Back to my work

I’m back home now after spending most of the last 2 months staying at my parents’ home so I could look after them while my brother was having a break. I’ll still be going back and forth, but will have time to get back to my own work. We had a lovely Christmas with all […]

Sunday in the hills

Yesterday we had lunch at the Core Cider House at Pickering Brook which is not far from us. Lovely orchard surroundings and a very good tasting plate as well as cider tastings. They have blankets for their patrons and we needed them – it was cold! Beautiful Banksias in their garden. My tidying up is […]


  Not much work happening lately, I’ve been painting walls instead of fabric. I have made another bag which I haven’t photographed yet and have been working on the DW red challenge. See the DW blog for my first piece.
