Pam’s Houses Competition.

  As promised the Houses to create magic. I would love to share my little houses with you and I wonder what you would do with them? You could put them in a line, Built a Neighbourhood. Design a quilt. You can enlarge them, add to them, create your own, but you need to have at least 50% of my design in your creation. You have from now until the 3rd of August (SA time) to work your magic. The prize will be one of my small houses quilts made just for you! And 6 runners up will receive “The Adventures of the Amazing Alphabet” This time I will share all of the entries on a page on my blog. Pam’s houses competition.   If you click on the link above it will give you the PDF you can print out.            

YARRENYTY ARLTERE ARTISTS: EVERY FACE HAS A STORY, EVERY STORY HAS A FACE: KULILA!

    Yesterday I had a day off from work in the studio. My Sister and I  visited the Art Gallery of South Australia. As a member I get lots of wonderful information about lectures, talks and cultural walks and after attending one of the talks I came across this exhbition. I think it’s beauty and simplicity talks for itself. These ladies are indeed true Textile Artists.        

Houston Quilt Festival:- day 4.

The show opened officially for the full day today and I’m told it was absolutely packed. Around noon, 2 million people descended on Houston for the Astros trade. The town turned Orange, I sort of thought it was for me, the roads and parks turned a bright shade of orange.

I broke the record – a small quilt pattern to share.

The South Australian Quilt Guild have a yearly Country Forum. It was held in the Ballroom at the Burnside Community centre. Excited car and bus loads of gals came from all over the State. The idea is to involve the country folk in the guild functions. Maxine Smith (el Presidente ) held the floor and Sandy Jones and her band of helpers, cooked, prepared goody bags and worked exceedingly hard to make this a day to be remembered.
