Sorry about the long gap of nothing - we had a 92 year old in hospital with a heart operation that suffered complications and it was touch and go for too long - just didnt feel like blogging then. All is well now, miracles do happen, she's 93 now, back in her home and reasonably independent so its feeling like a happy new year now.
What better way to start the year than by giving a talk to the Australian Quilters Association - it was there many years ago I got my introduction to art quilting and they were the beginning of so many wonderful friendships. My very good friend Dijanne Cevaal will be introducing her beautiful new book - come and have a look. Its going to be a great day.
My subject is "The Importance of Being Earnest - a side effect of community and textiles". I hope there's a few surprises there.
I'm bringing along a few friends too, meet Hairry Flamingo
He has a friend, Princess, with hairy legs
Possibly purple leg warmers for dancing practice. They have a smaller acquaintance
Violetta De Lórange
Vi has lots more friends which she has invited to come.
We are going to have fun!
