Winter in Dungog makes for a cold place to work in my wet studio.  However combining a resist and dye in a playful painterly way, these colourful pieces evolved.

A playday with two friends, using Procion MX cold water dyes produced many delights for each of us.  Here are two that came from my folding and twisting.

The beauty of Tassie’s Tarkine Wilderness inspired my collage of paint, fabric & stitch.

A very relaxing activity combining yarns, threads & beads produced this delightful necklace for a very special little girl.

By creating a mini “loom” made on cardboard I was able to weave a background of textural soft pinky / mauve colours.

Sparkles from my bead collection were then sewn on … and voila, this necklace became ready to wear.
