Back Again

Back again 

I have not posted for some time - been so busy but here we go again regularly from now on - I promise!!!!

Just getting over my studio open days for SALA (South Australian Living Artists) on the last two weekends - it was a great success but it does take a bit of work to get organised - cleaning, tidying, hanging work etc. but I love meeting the people that come to visit  - answering all the questions like - How to you get inspiration? Do you draw or plan before you begin? How do you organise your studio  - fabrics, threads etc..?

Just exhibited in the "In Your Backyard" exhibiition at Pepper Street Gallery, Magill Road, Adelaide
I created two small floral pieces for this exhibition - Fabric Collage - raw edged technique (see image below)

I am working on a floral series  - as well as other art works
One from this series is in the USA for the World Quilt Show, another is still travelling with "Beneath the Southern Skies" throughout Australia, an another in the new Australia Wide 3 (Ozquilt Network)  to be launched  at Fairfield Gallery, Sydney in October. These have been selected shows so I am thrilled with my efforts this year so far.

I am still working with our local exhibition group of five, "SAlt" - South Australian Living Textiles
We are creating 8 long panels each over the two years to a theme. We cannot announce where it will be exhibited in 2013 yet so  I will keep you posted. We cannot show any of our works until the launch.
We have all found this very difficult indeed but it will be worth it - 40 stunning panels on show next year.
