Hard to tell the difference between my print table cover and the printed fabric! I'm sorry but I can't show the full result as I need it for a juried exhibition entry.
I hope Cyclone Marcia is kind to all my friends and that you, your family and pets are safe and dry.

When I visited the Gallery of Modern Art [GOMA] in Brisbane recently I felt like I was meeting old friends when I saw these works from their collection. Asia Pacific Triennial exhibitions have introduced us to amazing artists and many pieces have made it into the permanent collection.
PixCell-Double Deer #4 2010 by Kohei Nawa. The deer are covered in hundreds of transparent glass or resin beads and originally when I saw a single deer by this artist at an APT it was in a white room.

I have been away from blog-land with child minding duties- school lunch making, school drop-offs and pick-ups, homework, cooking, washing and lots of driving from one side of Brisbane to the other! Phew, hard work but so nice to see the growing maturity of our grandchildren, Mr 12 and Miss 10.
This 12" quilt Leaf it was fun to work on and you may be able to see the quilting in this photo. The quilting thread colour blends with the background colour.
I didn't use a contrast coloured thread as in the photo above, as I felt the green and gold print was enough interest.

Coming along nicely now, but I need to move on to another project for Down Under Quilts magazine so it will have to sit like this for a bit.

I'm super excited to have been asked to host this special Down Under Quilts tour to South Africa in June/July this year for 14 days. It's a great opportunity to go on safari and see wildlife, interact with women making a difference to their lives through their stitching and craft and also end up at the biennial South African National Quilt Festival.
Active Travel have put together a great itinerary and I know we will have great adventures together as a small group. Perhaps some rubbing and printing opportunities will pop up too! Places for the quilt festival are filling fast, and as the accommodation is live-in at Kearsney College we may miss out.
If you are interested or want more information please contact Active Travel and I am also happy to answer any questions.
