Another teapot and Rosewater Jug

I found another  lutradur panel with a teapot and rosewater jug already printed so I have stitched it.I really needed to get some stitching done- my sewing machine has been sitting in  abject silence.
It measures 8 inches square or 20 cms square and is for sale for $45 AUS inclusive of postage. Just email me if you are interested.

And I have enrolled in a  Graphic Design and Printing course at the Gordon Institute. It is a full time course, running for a semester ,but as I want to write more books I really want to work with Illustrator more and short courses are not in depth enough. Today was my first day as student- it feels rather strange being so much older than everyone, though  the young people were quite friendly and one of the guys fell asleep  in the lecture- tomorrow is a free day.

I have also been invited to exhibit in Prague in December- this is very exciting as I have never been to Prague and it is a textile event rather than a quilt event and i shall be the only Australian there.So I have made a commitment to get there by hook or crook and would love to meet some Czechoslovakian textile artists.

Next weekend some of my work will be shown at Chabeuil near Valence in Southern France along with some other terrific artists  at De Fil en Fil

There are still some places left in the Travellers Blanket  on-line class but it is filling so if you want to do it you will need to let me know soon. It starts on August 13 and I have been working on the  blanket itself ( to be able to show participants a different version) and also the notes.

Last week  the latest Magic Patch ( France )arrived with a project I did of the Gypsy Blanket. I love the orange background for the  image of the quilt and the styling of the photograph!

Oh, I love the tea pot. The color combination is very nice.

Creatively made.
