Dreams of India full lenth
Well it’s all done & delivered today in it’s padded bag. This isn’t a great photo but hopefully it gives an idea of the whole piece.
The photo below is a close-up view of the hanging rod.

Today also, another pleasant day at the Embroiderers’ Guild. Our group, Innovative Stitches, had a workshop on Italian corded Trapunto quilting where we used photocopies of the designs on Beardman jugs from the Batavia shipwreck to create a linear design for a quilting sample. Most of us did hand stitching but I think I’ll do a machine one too. Much quicker! Hopefully I’ll eventually get these finished & post a photo.
The group is working towards an exhibition next year on the theme of WA’s historical shipwrecks and we’re each making a visual diary or journal with all the sample pieces we do from each meeting. As I was a late starter with the group I’ll have to get moving on this soon.

Saw a couple of great exhibitions in the past week, the Year 12 Perspectives at the WA art Gallery & a textile exhibition on the theme of WA’s native flora by Pam Annesley, Loralie Smit & Dianna Vincent.

  1. Hi Linda,
    I am a new reader of your blog and I am coming out of hiding! I am in awe of this amazing piece of work, it is just beautiful and the incorpration of the rod is stunning. You must be very proud of such a work of art.

  2. Well Linda what can I say–This is just so stunning –the colours and detail are superb and the rod just adds to it—Do you get the feeling that I like it–I hope so.

  3. Linda,

    I found your wonderful blog via Fibre&Stitch website.

    I ADORE this wall hanging. You have inspired me to try something with my own spin or twist to it.

    I am a mixed media artist with a passion for fibers… I mostly paint on fabric using acrylics… then combining my painting with other elements.

    I will be looking forward to your article in Fibre&Stitch

    Tracie Lyn
