It's time for the Viewpoints 9 Challenge 7 reveals to begin. My quilt is titled Slovak Tattoo and you can read more about it on the Viewpoints 9 blog.
Here's a detail teaser. Embroidered Textiles by Sheila Paine, the second edition 2008 is a beautiful resource book with a Slovak embroidered blouse on the cover. Published by Thames and Hudson. I bought my copy from Can Do Books.
Like most quilt shows this had all the usual attractions- vendors, exhibitions and individual featured exhibitors. The French fabrics were lovely and something we don't see so much of in Australia. The popular vendors were 3 deep at the counters.
Bohin, France sell many useful items for stitching and sewing. Seemed to be more men around the show floor than we usually see. Even some dogs.
Nice to see people enjoying my India Adventure quilts.
Dear blog followers, we are having a marvellous time in the Beaujolais region with our Mexette friends. The Quilt Expo en Beaujolais experience was quite amazing. Unfortunately I have had trouble with photos but will happily share lots of them when I can rectify this situation.
Our French holiday is at an end and now we go to visit my family in Slovakia. If I don't report in each day, it is only that we are living life to the full! Talk again soon.
We are staying in Annecy, by the lake in L' Imperial Palace and it is living up to expectations.
Our third floor terrace is a great spot for late afternoon champagne and cheese with snow capped mountain peaks as the backdrop. No one is swimming in the icy lake waters yet, but there is a lot of strolling along the shores.
So lovely to see young families and the children learning to ride their bicycles.
The anticipation and the waiting is almost over! The Expo begins shortly and my India Adventure exhibition is on display as well as Beautiful Australia. If you can't make it to the Expo you may view the quilts on my website.
The Medieval hill top town of Perouges is very atmospheric and wasn't swarming with tourist hordes- yet! The streets are cobblestoned and cars drive in and out. We parked outside the town walls in the special parking bays and strolled in the sunshine.
One of the specialities is the Galette, which is like a pizza base topped with sugar. Most shops here have a window from which they sell their baked goods.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
