Where I live

One of the (many) pleasures of living here is watching the moon rise over the water. There is something magical about seeing the light glimmering on the surface of the sea. I took these photos last week.

Photo of the perigee moon seen from NSW south coast May 6 2012
Just over a year ago I captured the rise of the perigee moon which inspired this fabric postcard.  Thermofax printed tree, stencilled moon on hand dyed fabric.  I think I will have to make more of these.

tACTile exhibition – 100 quilts celebrating Canberra’s centenary

Just got back from a flying trip to Canberra to catch the last day of the Celebrating Canberra exhibition. I couldn’t take photos, but pop over to Jenny Bowker’s blog where she has posted lots of photos and published the artists’ statements.

Great exhibition – lots of different perspectives on Canberra.  I was lucky enough to spend some time chatting with Dianne Firth, who shared some interesting insights into her work.  Nearly all the pieces are for sale, so if you see something you like, contact the artist.

I went to Canberra via Goulburn and called in on Claire Ayling and checked out her beautiful Bali Batiks – she says she is having a sale next weekend, so if you are near Goulburn, drop in.
