Punta Cana

3 days of travel and now I’m here in Punta Cana Dominican Republic. The TV news is talking to me in the background, the light is mellow in the room. I’m in my Jamas and trying to stay awake just a little longer. I’ve done 3 days washing and hung it in the bathroom and…

Traveling today.

I’ve actually been traveling for two days, Iwrote this yesterday as I traveled. One day from Australia and I arrived at 6.00 am yesterday. I admit I slept a bit when I got to the hotel. I don’t think I could have done another 5 hours to Miami so I do it today. The art…

A little more of the Quilts from the Houston Quilt Festival.

I flew directly to India after Houston and I still had a lot of images to share but I just rolled into the image of India. So here they are, I’m not sure what category these were in. I think it was colour. Nevertheless, they are gorgeous.

Look out of the window and create a quilt.

This is what it looks like as you fly over Australia. Sometimes I can capture images, sometimes not. This time I flew to right through the centre of Australia from South the North and I captured this image. Come home and make the quilt. Finished.

Working through the process.

Still working on the Giraffe. To be honest I had some doubts after I coloured the background but I quite like it now and I have a lot more planned for it, by that I mean I need to darken the top two edges of the quilt so that your eyes focus on the image…

Bringing your travels back home.

I do it, I do it. My house if full of colour and the work of artists from all over the world. Paintings, Textiles, Garments and artifacts. I sit under a Kantha quilt of indeterminable age at night when I watch TV, made by someone in the magical world of invisible possibility. There’s a stack…

It's cooler today.

For us, living in the Adelaide Hills, the temperature has dropped and it’s cool once again. There is a stillness in the garden and the agapanthus are almost in full bloom and I love sitting out amongst the foliage and my ‘things’ and working. It’s unreal that our country is in the grip of terrible…

A muddling day.

I began the day with good intention, plans were changed for a meeting at the last minute and it sort of threw me a bit. OK, suck it up sunshine, I wanted to achieve a lot today, but I got sidetracked and washed the bathroom mats and did some cooking. (not my favourite thing) I…

The way it is.

I’m creating a year long time capsule. I may not be able to do it each day, but I will try to capture just a little bit daily. You may be interested, maybe it’s boring, but it’s a social experiment on my behalf. I have an application called’ Day One’ on my phone, Ipad and…
