Summer time in Sydney has cooled off … dropped 15 degrees to now be a mere 26 degrees, so I have had my head down to develop a new quilt to teach an intriguing technique at a future workshop. That is, if this idea of mine takes off. The quilt is only half there – some buds yet to be attached(,hint hint, as to what this quilt style this is going to be) , and a decision as to whether I have a patterned border or perhaps a pillowslip edge. Meantime while I focus on finishing my new quilt, this picture shows a favourite of mine – where I applied various mixed mediums over fabric. Foils, silk cocoon strippings, fabric paints, worked well together on this mountain collage – inspired from my travels to the Flinders Ranges where the dessert colours stun you with their magnificence.
Also……….I have just stated a linocutting course. Mmmmm my cheap lino cutting tools are not the best and if anyone can advise me on good quality lino cutting tools to purchase (and where from) I welcome any hints you care to pass on. Maybe if my “homework” turns out well enough, I will post some examples, but I cant think about this just yet. I have to get skilled at this new process. Looks like its going to be a great workshop with people scattered over the globe. Well, there is lots to do. so see you later.
