Recent travels in Tasmania rekindled my enjoyment of simple stitching.
Applied to two blocks that never emerged into a large wall-quilt, they have a new life by becoming these mini-placemats. So so handy!
And a way to show off my hand-dyed cotton using Procion Dyes.
During our travels in Burnie, the paper town, we visited their “Maker’s Workshop”. This is a fabulous centre housing a gallery, artists shop, cafe with wonderful ocean views, various artist demonstration areas, and a paper making workshop with regular tours. Highly recommended – a must see if you are in that part of Tassie. (more on http://www.discovernburnie.net).
Using a gelli-plate and stencils I played around with my Jo Sonja acrylic paints, made a big mess, and these emerged. There is no mention of words about Xmas, but the colours indicate this theme all too well. They will be for sale at our local market in Dungog in December.
