from top left we have "a snake in the outback" & a red back spider
middle row is Australia , Blade put a bead on his map of where we live...and his background fabric was sharks & fish. Next to that is a star fish on the "great Barrier reef"
and the bottom row has "Kookaburras in a gum tree" and "a Day at the beach", the iron on transfers were a great way for the kids to achieve a high quality image..
I have stayed on to help the kids make Pj's and boxer shorts...

I have been away on a 5 day road trip with my Dad. He has Kelpies which he works in Yard Dog trials. It's nice to spend some time with him and to meet his friends. I wish I could have stopped along the way and collected some eucalyptus leaves... but 76yr old farmers just don't get pots of boiling leaves. No time for that rot !It is great to get back to organizing my textile exhibition.... I have decided to add some heritage textile work. To move forward and improve it is sometimes good to look back and see how it was done in the past. Perhaps people will see the art in some of the beautiful old garments. A local group have some Embroidered Irish linen and another Friend has her Mothers Trou`sseau which was all hand sewn. the local Heritage Society are helping with display cases and some lovely things from their collection. It's exciting.
