Small Sentinelles

I am  ready to start really working again, not that i have sat idle, but I went up to my mothers, so that took 3 days out of my week, and I did do some handwork whilst i was there. I did however forget to take my camera, so no photos to share of some of her garden, which is full of all sorts of vegetables and flowers. I miss my vegie patch and yes i could have started one here, but when I am away  the plants aren't watered enough and then I feel it has been a waste of effort.

I have been printing more sentinelle panels. These are for sale if you are interested. Each panel is hand printed with a linocut and printed onto my own hand dyed fabric. Each panel measures approximately 19 inches x 8 inches (45cm x 20cm). The cost of each panel is $15 AUS plus postage ( maximum $5 AUS for overseas- less for Australia). Please contact me if you are interested. And i can custom print as well if a colour you like is not present.
I stitched one of these small panels during the week- I am finding it a very soothing process and they seem to acquire their own personalities and subtleties.It is difficult to get the colour right in the photograph, the blue is much more of a cornflower blue, but she just oozes mystery- I am not quite sure what she is trying to reveal yet.....


I am thinking of making a series of just sentinelle faces as well- after looking at some of the drawings I made as i was working on the bigger pieces.Have to go to Melbourne today and thought I would visit Opendrawer Gallery as I have to take some Pukka Essentials to them. And yes Creative Arts Safaris is planning a tour of Southern France and Barcelona in 2013- if you need more information or would like to go on the mailing list for more information just click on the link.
