It’s been a year

It’s a year today since my Mum, Dulcie, died. She is often in my thoughts but today I want pay tribute to what a huge influence she’s been in my life and art practice. She was very creative although she didn’t have the opportunity to really follow that path and learn pottery until we were […]

New Toy

This is my new Brother Scan n Cut machine. I bought it a couple of weeks ago – had been thinking about it for a while, then received a 40% off voucher from spotlight so that made my mind up! I’ve played with it a little, cutting paper, card stock and drafting film – so […]

Denmark

My table set up at the craft fair last Sunday. I had to move later when the sun came over but it was quite a successful day – sold enough to make it worthwhile and with pleasant surroundings, music, and a nice lunch, I was happy.

Some new pieces

  I seem to be just scratching around the edges with my work lately (too many distractions) but I guess something, however insignificant, is better than nothing!

Spring has sprung

This week we’ve had very wintery weather but today was better, so this afternoon we went to Araluen, a garden not far from us, to check out the tulips which were impressive. We unexpectedly ran into DH’s brother and sister in law who were taking his Mum to see the tulips. There were also beautiful magnolias, […]

Block Printing

I’m writing an article for Online Quilt Magazine on Simple Printing methods – I needed a couple more photos so had a quick print session in my studio today. The top part of this print is done with a scored polystyrene tray and a square block of polystyrene. The bottom part is done with the […]

Rusty things

Today we were at my Uncle’s home doing the final few things before it goes on the market. I took some photos as this is where my father grew up too and I have happy childhood memories of visiting there and exploring the garden which was beautiful then. The house was built about 100 years […]
