After way too long doing sample cards, I needed to do something relaxing and just for pleasure. I have always picked up bits and pieces of Japanese fabric, so I had a needle and thread and this is what happened.
I'm not really a patchworker, but sometimes, as Belly and I have talked about, I just need to stitch.

My favorite store is Japanache in Mittagong.

samples, samples, samples...

These little cards have been occupying so much of my time lately..
They are sample cards for Mum's yarn store, Rainbow Wools. We don't do them often, but when we do it's a huge job! Nearly finished..

What do you think?

Mr Lacroix, I am thinking a grid of small pieces lots of hot pink, gold and citric with slashes of red and black. So with the purple and how hot pink images that gives me two bodies of work to test.

Inspiration for Lacroix

I cut these roses from my garden this morning to take to Avi's studio to work on a porcelain installation. So Larcroix don't you think.

I can not find a website for the gallery. It is some where in Switzerland

I recived this invitation from a good friend in Switzerland today. Lucette is a glass artist and Dorte is also an artist. I have now meet Dorte but her image of weaving is beautiful so I thought I would share it with you all.

Last weekend I spent 2 days at Strathnairn community hall participating in a Netwurks workshop. Twelve very excited participants spent the weekend netting, the techniques learnt were knitting, chicken wire, buttonhole, and buttonhole over a core thread. Well these are the names I am using as I didn't write down the correct terms the facilitator used.

So were to now? What do I want to do now? I think I still love knitting and weaving with copper wire and maybe that is were i will return. I do have some fibre optics so that may be a good core to use in baskets.
