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. […]

Rich in Stitch Exhibition

Top: commercial fabrics pieced and stitched with some block printing and beaded braid […]

WAFTA Naturally Exhibition

Wow! I saw the exhibtion today and thought it looked great. It’s on at the Moores building, Henry Street, Fremantle but only until August 17. All the pieces were 3.5 metres long x 50cms wide in muted colours and there were many beautiful ones. I’ve cropped the photos because we were only meant to photograph […]
