I’ve been hung at last!

This morning my friend Penne Jefford-Kane and myself put in some hard yards at the Deception Bay Library: we had been asked to submit a selection of art quilts as ‘artists in residence’ for the month of July.

I didn’t realize until today what hard work it is arranging a small show.
I’ve also decided I do not like ladder work any more.regardless of the exercise involved (smiles to myself)

We grouped these three works together because
a) The two smaller quilts are the same theme,but different techniques.
The upper piece is a machine applique`d fabric landscape and the lower black bordered one is worked in machine felted wool and silk fibres.

Over the computer desk we arranged some of my Journal Quilts,and on the wall opposing them was hung “Shapes” and one of my favourites,although it doesnt really qualify as an art quilt.
“I love a sunburnt country” is a Redwork hand embroidered quilt featuring flora and fauna and surrounding a map of Australia.

Unfortunately my camera batteries “died” so you’ll need to visit again to see the rest of our exhibit.

Maybe now,I’ll have :
“TIME” to make a start on that “Embellish stitch and Enrich” course of Dale R’s which must now be entering it’s fifth week.
b)The larger piece “Asymmetrical Abstraction” is an attempt at an abstract landscape.
