Portrait No 17.

I was becoming wrapped up in the project and I suddenly remembered that I hadn’t explained how I made her arms. To work on them more accurately I made a separate drawing. I do that a lot, with the Bayeux, I have thousands of small separate drawings specific for parts of appliqué. You can see…

It’s quarter to ten and I’m leaving at 4.00 am in the morning, but I wanted to get Frida down on the background.There is a lot more to do, but it is OK to travel.

Just plain quilting

Sometimes in this job there is a degree of self doubt. Over recent trips I’ve felt a greater sense of responsibility to push the barrier just that little bit  higher because so much is expected and anticipated of me. Discussion with friends and peers on the subject has made me realize that I have the…

I’m not tardy, just busy.

The weekend was full of excitement for a newly crowned two year old princess. As for the rest of the family, it was a great excuse for a get together.Grown up Aunts and Uncles wore little party hats, and  ate fairy cakes iced in bright blue and pink. It was a wonderful day.I admit to…

Fabric Designs.

I’ve been playing with fabric design and video  today…..and I spent the day yesterday on the collaborative project. To say that we are excited at what we are doing is an understatement…We’re pushing the boundaries….. and ourselves. I’ll tell you more about the video later…

Portrait No 16

Now I’m working on the arms. I will work on  each one separately then put them into position on the quilt. The bottom arm looks a little strange but there is extra shading to go on before you see the final product. I’ve used the same fabric as I used on the base of the…

Alphonso, Jessy and Judy.

I’ve been pushing it a little too much over the past week and my body told me so today so I took it a little easier this afternoon. (even to having a sleep on the couch)I have 10 white doves that are free….One day a young pigeon called Alfredo flew in and joined the group….

It’s raining.

It’s still raining.Living in the Driest State in the Driest Country in the world it’s lovely to see the rain. However, I do prefer the weather warm and sunny and I’m already over the grey day, the damp and the heaters on.A grey day does nothing for my creative spirit. Then again it could be…

Portraits No 15.

I’ve completed the assembly of the her dress.There is a little illustration at this stage, however, I will do more at a later date.On the right hand side I have been able to blend the fabrics with a brown pen. As I mentioned yesterday I added a little more to the shawl. Of course I…

Travel

one of the nicest things about travel is "Coming home" This is a view of the Adelaide Hills as I flew in on Wednesday
