Around Our New House




Part of the reason I did not want to move far away from my former marital home is that I love the nature in this region ( and it allows the kids easy access to their father). The house we have rented is just outside the village we have lived in for the last 10 years- Gellibrand in the Otway Ranges of Victoria. I was delighted when we found this house we are now renting as the views are as good if not better than in our old house and best of all we have a little grove of tree ferns out the back door. We also pump water from a small creek for household water ( which is the first image). I love tree ferns and especially the uncurling fronds. I have in the past made a quilt with this subject matter- still no quilting/textile work done.

If anyone is interested ,another box of Across Australia caralogues emerged ( we had thought them all gone) - this was the exhibition which I curated that travelled to the Middle East in 2006/2007. If you are interested ( 28 quilts in full colour catalogue) the cost is $20US inclusive of postage and you can email me by clicking on my profile.

I have also had several people email me recently to ask me whether Tifaifai Remaissance is available anywhere as it is out of print. Alas the answer is no as far as I know, and I only have two copies myself which I use for teaching. I suppose the only solution is to write another and put it on cd?

Best Wishes for the new house, I hope you'll all be happy, and you find it to be a wonderfully creative place to be. I love tree ferns too and am looking forward to seeing your work in the next year or so!!

I also hope this will be a happy home for you. Love the vertical garden - wish I had one of those as well as my ordinary ones!

Dijanne,

You must be very happy to have a place of your own after all the struggle to build, it looks a very nice spot to settle in for the time being.

That takes me right back to 1993, when we "did" the outback for six month - just like being there again.

All the best for your future........
