It’s about this time of year, when I’m wearing four layers of clothes, huddled by the heater that I become very jealous watching you northern hemisphere folk in your T-shirts, sandals and sunshine. This was the view from one the studios in our building late this afternoon. It’s cold out there!

Of course I had to go nab the inaugural Tara bag. @littlecrowdesign is @tramsheds until 4pm.

Thanks so much for all the love on yesterday’s post ❤️ Today there was some progress on some of the projects some of the time (in between day job bits).

Whacko-the-diddle-oh!* My quilt ‘What’s your time worth?’ has been selected for judging and exhibition in the Buda Contemporary Textile Award!! Super exciting. And, I won’t be the only @tenfoldtextilecollective member showing.

Bit of Sunday bling. Road tripping back the other direction now.

And on the weekend I also finally got to the @marimekko exhibition. I loved seeing the original painted surface designs and the fact you could see the brushstrokes - no perfectly flat gouache here.

Got sidetracked for a couple of days there... this is the last pic I can show you from Petite Miniatures as my stupid phone is doing that thing where it takes photos but doesn’t save them 😤
This is ‘Electric’ by @suzanneknight33 - don’t you just love it!
One of the reasons for visiting the show was that one of my fellow Tenfolders had a piece hanging, but you’ll have to wait until @analog_cloth posts her own pic as mine is lost somewhere in the ether. Post a pic Ana!

‘In the Belly of Wolf-Mother’, embroidery by Marley Myles. Another piece from Petite Miniatures yesterday. It was good to see a lot of different names amongst the familiar - a whole bunch of new-to-me textile artists to research!

Yesterday I was at the opening of Petite Miniatures in Wangaratta. This piece was just one of the many that caught my eye - ‘The Structure of Quartz’ by Jennifer Robertson. As with any textile show here, it was packed with inspiration. It’s on for another six weeks so check it out if you can.
