Another catch up!

So much to catch up since my last (July) post!!!!!!

Firstly I will follow up July, these are the ATC’s we sent in July to Anne in France:

Mine is FME and beading over a linoprint.

I won’t repeat news that is already blogged on the GeeTAG group blog. Visit there for recent workshops including today’s dyeing day at Anglesea. My pots of fabric, threads and napkins are looking good in their little jars and will be left to brew for a fortnight before being rinsed out:

These will result in 24 clear colour gradations plus a few variations. Some of our ‘dyehards’ altered the original recipe, adding brown, olive green or aubergine to the dyepots. It will be interesting to see our results in a fortnight.

My clean up rag was predominantly green:

My dyed fabrics (and matching threads) are destined for a large (KS) quilt based on Monet’s waterlillies and incorporating Gloria Loughman’s quilting techniques.

Last weekend was our Guild’s Bi-ennial exhibition(but has been three years due to the Johnston Collection christmas exhibition in 2009). I don’t have my bits and pieces back yet but this is a picture of the piece for one of our group exhibits. Everyone took one of Pauline’s linoprints to embellish how they please:


I used Kim Thittichai’s Hot Spots and glitter on the border.

Yesterday we received some beautiful autumn (in France) stitchery from Anne:

I will blog our swap ATC’s shortly after Anne has received them.

I’ll finish this post with a photo of my amazing daughter at her graduation with distinctions in Arts-Journalism & Indonesian from Deakin University.

Coming up next: a photo tour of our road trip-Adelaide to home.

    Lovely ATC and lino print piece. Congratulations to your daughter. What kind of dyes were you using that they need to sit for 2 weeks??
