Everyone was on form today! We missed Di who was away with the flu, and three of us had to leave early, so who knows what mischief the rest got up to after that! We had a delicious morning tea, and spread out our Brisbane Challenge pieces, and they are looking excellent! Colours blending well thus far, and I have some photos to show the progress on this … Donna, Helen, Kim, Jill, and Sue all worked on some aspect of their pieces, and the others doing random bits – Jan was working on her second piece for TEXTile Translations, Brenda is into sparrows….and cake, Alex showed me the lovely birds by various textile artists published in the latest Embellish magazine, Ryl was sewing on a binding…..
Show and tell was also interesting with Helen showing us an Eco dyed piece, also Alex had some squares of vintage onkaparinga woollen blanketing that she had Eco dyed with leaves; Ryl showed us her nifty quilted tool hideaway tube for taking to workshops, a bag, an early (1999) confetti quilt wall hanging, as well as a lovely landscape she has made of her brother’s property, and destined as a gift for him. Jan had her revamped seagull piece and it is looking wonderful! Already framed by her lovely husband. Sue brought along one of her fabric panel samples she designed for the 2Sew Tetraspinner kits which will be on sale shortly!
And that’s it for now!
