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…

My blog has been resting.

Thirteen weeks down and counting.Thirteen weeks home and in complete isolation for 3/4 of that time.Yes, everyone else is in the same situation, and life has changed immeasurably for us all. In the future, dates will be measured by “During the time of the pandemic.”You try to be upbeat, but sometimes even that state of…

A Bayeux Journey Story

A Bayeux story. When Jamie and I decided to film part of the documentary of my journey with the Bayeux Tapestry, Carolyn, one of my friends from Australia, joined us in Paris. We drove to Bayeux in our hired Mercedes. Poor Caroline, Jamie took advantage of being in Europe and drove a lot faster than…

No 3 in the steps to the Bayeux, Tapestry to Quilt.

Every week I will add more to this journey. I’ve done it in this format to add to Social Media for my students. In 1068 a group of artisans completed one of the most intriguing pieces of art in history. The Bayeux Tapestry. Carola Hicks states “The Bayeux Tapestry provides a far-from impartial account of a…

How do you design a quilt?

I guess first of all I need a topic, and I chose Eddie the Crow who resides on our Balcony. He’s part of the family, and with his partner, he’s been with us for around five years.He talks to me and gets as excited as a puppy when I return home from a long trip….

Back to Houston.

In these difficult times I thought I would present you with more images of the International Quilt Festival Houston. I didn’t have time to add them all while I was there, so now we have more time to enjoy the beauty. It also means that I can review them all again. I like to take…
