This palette will be on the cutting mat soon, just a few small things to get out of the way first.
Right now I’m at the airport heading back to Sydney. Despite having four quilts in the suitcases on the way down and none on the way back, I swear they are more full - goodness knows how!

Waiting for the train... spent too long faffing in the fabric shop.
Finally (because it’s been so freaking hard to photograph) this is the first piece I have hanging in our show. It’s about how our work forms our identity and how we talk about ourselves when the labels no longer fit. I’ve spent the last 20+ years managing graphic design teams, writers and editors and previous to that designing and working as a sub-editor myself. This quilt is based on a page layout grid - taking my old (although still-continuing) work and fashioning it through the eyes of my textile work.

Yep it’s me sitting the gallery today. If you find yourself in Ballarat then come and say hi 👋🏻 I’m here until 4pm

In progress pic of the baby quilt from last week. This is the third #stripweavequilt I’ve made and I still have another two in the works. Just can’t seem to stop.

It’s finally cold enough in Melbourne to knit. I’m back at the Field cardigan and have written out the instructions for the dreaded raglans. 302 stitches on the needle and I’m off!

Our exhibition opened by the the Mayor of Ballarat no less, Cr Samatha McIntosh. Such a great afternoon with so many supportive peeps coming along ❤️

Had severe post-project-completion blues yesterday* (from the exhibition pieces) but remembering the reaction on gifting this one on  Tuesday made everything OK again.
*Does anyone else get this, or is it just me?

Sneaky peek at one corner of our show after day one of installation yesterday.
@jemolsen was back at it again today. Such a superstar!
Can’t wait for opening celebration on Saturday.

Can’t help myself - just had to add a few wee touches of hand quilting. Let’s face it, now that I own every thread colour under the sun, it had to be done!

A little bit of quilt inspo was just what I needed yesterday. Detail from Terri Bahn’s Rainy Night. Part of the Cherrywood Challenge on display at #aqc2018 
Now to finish off my two quilts for Second Skin opening on Thursday 😜
Panel 5. I just had to work on something else for a bit! The exhibition pieces just have the hanging sleeves to go (BORING!) and a wee bit of hand quilting but I’m saving that for the weekend.
