April’s colour is Green!

It’s time for ROY G BIV again & the 4th colour of the rainbow is Green. My photos all show Australian flora. The first 3 were taken at Piney Lakes, where textile group, Designing Women meet – they will be used for a project we’re doing for an exhibition later this year.       […]

Yellow is the colour for March

  Its time for Roy G Biv again (initials of the colours of the rainbow) This month it’s yellow, a colour I use for mixing and sometimes over dyeing or over painting, but I rarely use yellow as a feature in my work. I did manage to find some yellow – I like yellow walls, sunshine, flowers – […]

ATCs & swaps

I made 12 ATCs for swapping at the March Designing Women meeting on Saturday and below my Christmas decoration for another swap – I was a little late with that one!

Exhibition photos

Here are some photos of the opening evening of ‘Flourish’ at Genesis in the Hills vegetarian café/restaurant. We had a lovely group of people attend, the weather was perfect, delicious food provided by Kathleen and quite a few red dots. January is probably not the best time to do this sort of thing so I’m very happy […]
