Digital technology that goes well beyond creativity

I spend hours on the plane, while I’m watching TV and even in bed designing on the ipad. (by the way I think every quilter needs an ipad) My mind is constantly challenged and technology has increased my desire to challenge myself even more as a Textile artist… I don’t think I should say I’m a quilter as such.. I’m an artist in textiles I love it. Its stimulating and challenging thanks to Technology.

Journey with me.

I’ve had some difficulty with my blog and web page over the past month. They are technical difficulties which are very frustrating, but I do hope I’ve been able to rectify them. Of course many of you know of our journey with Baby Jay now 4 weeks old. He is improving slowly and we are taking it day by day. Thanks everyone for your support. I will be journeying again  very soon. First  to Tasmania, to begin with, then a big old country roundup for the South Australian Quilt Guild in sort of the outback and the next day I fly. I will be joining the Destination Craft group in Nepal. We film the crafts of the local Master Crafters of the area. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us. We will be  working with a great crew of Directors, Producers and Cameramen. You will eventually be able to view this fabulous series in the US fall. I can’t wait. Our Guatemalan event was off the charts as they say. We have India, Thailand, …

I’m home and I’m humbled.

Jay has a carer 24 hours a day. He’s hooked up to dozens of wires it seems. His little tiny toes glow under the blankets and each movement captures your gaze. One tiny little arm escapes from his muslin swaddling blanket and its attached to a small board of wires, the other little hand reaches for freedom despite the efforts of the staff.
