Featured

The reason I've been so busy?

From Saturday 27 March and for the following six weeks, I'll be featured artist at the Material Arts Gallery in Braidwood.

Zipper

And that means I had to make more stuff to put in the gallery.

Brooches

And I had to think about quilts. I haven't been inspired to make a quilt for ages, but this week has seen a flurry of talk about yo yos (or suffolk puffs) as I'm going to teach a class in how to make them at the next Canberra Brown Owls. I've become addicted to making them. In fact, I've made about 30 since late last night.

Yoyos

These ones, using my treasured and long-collected Japanese fabric, will become a small quilt, but not right now. I didn't leave myself enough time. I'm going to be "artist in residence" at the gallery on 17 April so I'll submit a quilt or two before then.
