Working through the process.

I finished this small sample completely today by adding strips of Kantha to the border, well actually as the border… now it goes into the class demonstration file.

Designing.

I’m in the design process.

Did it begin today?

No, it began when I took the photo in India a month ago and it’s been floating around in my mind and popping into my mind for short periods of time in the past few weeks.

Christmas Day at the Hollands.

    Just a short video to share a little about our Australian Christmas. Wishing all my friends on the blog and Social Media an exciting New Year.   Christmas at the Hollands from Iampamholland on Vimeo.

Just a little Information.

Stay tuned for the new tour information on our Textile tours to India 2018, Thailand 2018, India  2019 and Guatemala.   Possibly more.  These are the educational tours where everyone participates. I will teach art, photography and a little about Textiles, but we will have tutors  to take you through many of the  techniques of dying, printing and stitching and the amazing history of textiles.

Lets return to the Houston Quilt Festival.

I’ve been traveling and it isn’t as easy to write an extensive blog each day. Depending on the speed of the internet in my hotel it often takes time to add the images.

So here we are 2 months later and now I can add the images I missed.

I’ll begin with Houston and I’ll add the few images I took of the  Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge 2017. I think there were 465 submissions and each and every one I saw was stunning.

Catching up.

I’ve been home a week now. It’s all moving too fast and I have a lot to catch up on after two months on the road. I will finish adding the Houston photos and then do the essays on India and Thailand.
