Studio shelves... things are only moving at a snail's pace around here 🐌

Had to break the yarn on the gigantic cone to start the sleeves so figured it was time to wind some more manageable-sized cakes off.
One sleeve underway!

And finally the works of Loris Button. 'Travelling Tales' is a series of linocuts on reclaimed abaca (banana) paper no less! So much inspiration in this show.

And then there were the beautiful cut maps by Carole Wilson - quite a few including stitching. 'Lebuh Armenian'.

Creating something entirely new from pieces discarded. Detail from 'Porcelain Garden' by @lousaxton

Definitely worth the trip out to @artgalbal to see these treasures. 'Iron Butterflies 2007' - Deborah Klein. Hand cut lino prints on paper.

I love everything about this project! Voveo as part of Radiant Pavilion. Such generosity @miastraka 🙏🏻
Check it out today and tomorrow at Melbourne City Library. Each card carries a Maori value. After choosing one that resonates, you then commit to undertaking an act that demonstrates the value - the promise. Mia then makes you a pendant stamped with your value as a reminder of the commitment you've made.

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah there's a quilt top. Next there'll be basting, then quilting, then binding and then... there'll be a new pattern!
