Creating a design board.

This is a small drawing I created in Adobe Draw on the iPad Pro as we traveled in the bus yesterday. It’s Naive to say the least, but it’s what I saw in a pure sort of way. Components in the image could be used as stand alone patterns for fabric. The stripes, the trees…

From Alice Springs to Uluru.

7.00 am, and we left Alice. It was calm and quiet, and when we stepped out of the door of hotel the air smelled of dew on the grass. It was delicious. I’m aware that there’s been a lot of rain recently, but I don’t think that’s the only reason it’s so green, I remember…

Who knows what we will encounter at the next exciting turn.

“Don’t undervalue what you do.” Pam I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel as though I’m going backwards.Then I stopped and took stock. “Where has that week gone”? I spent all of last week working on a program, and when I begin something like that, I can’t stop in the middle and do…

The time has come.

Goodness me, it’s so long since I’ve written my blog, but things are about to change, and I need a space to share, so it’s back to the blog, shall I venture to say, it’s with a degree of enthusiasm and a little dash of doubt that I can do it as regularly as I…

Aurifil Artisan representation for June 2021.

Goodness me, here we again, and I hope to be more proactive this season. I had finished a few small projects earlier this month, and then I was surprised by urgent surgery on my dominant hand, which will now be in plaster for the next month or so. Before surgery, my package arrived from Italy,…

Back on track again.

It’s been a while since I wrote a blog. Our personal life has been more than busy, (I can’t find the right word for that’ but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel right now. Things are changing in the Textile Art world, and I’ve been adding virtual events to the…

From the studio.

Another day of Bayeux work, then on to the portraits, I’m doing three different genres at once, and I want to get them completed so that I can create another cheesecloth portrait. I drew this on very fine Indian fabric. It’s so fine, you can see through it. I used prisma pencils because they are…

A day in the studio.

I’ve spent all day in the studio today.I finished a Textile Art piece I’ve been working on. I am following the Textileart.org Stitch Club and jumping out of my personal space and doing different things. I don’t do all of the things offered, but I’ve found it most interesting.The piece I completed is a creative…

The Mojo is back and the tours are on the books.

Have you found that the days have begun to run into one another? The weekend came around extremely fast this week, it just snuck up on me. Then again, I’ve been busily working in the studio. Quilting, illustrating, appliquéing and writing and venturing out very little. Here in South Australia, Covid 19 is no longer…

The stages of my Bayeux.

I’ve managed to catch up with many of my other projects, now I can concentrate on the Bayeux. I try to put in six or seven hours a day of work, but I’m not doing the 4.00 am starts because it’s winter. I prefer doing that in summer. The days are so short and the…
