I had intended to go back down to Gellibrand but as I have six quilts to make and six articles to write I have taken up the kind offer of some friends to use their bungalow until the Medieval Project starts touring again in mid-August. I will travel with the medieval project as follows:
Canberra- August 11-14
Newcastle August 18-21
Hamilton New Zealand September 1-4
Wellington New Zealand September 8-10
( if anyone knows of cheap/budget accommodation in Canberra or Newcastle your advice would be much appreciated!)
I have had the thinking cap on for a new project, as people keep asking what I will do next, so I will start creating new linocuts inspired by the Australian Bush- and the new project will be called the Bush Project- so watch this space!I will be making linocuts, printing them on fabric with the idea of creating a panorama of the bush, which will be for sale-and hopefully embroidered and embellished by many hands as the sentinelles were and the Medieval project were.I hope that The Bush Project will again fire the imagination .
Meanwhile some of my sentinelles are for sale- these are the small hand stitched panels that measure approximately 8 inches x 18 inches. They are $125 each- these are the last of the small sentinelles. The photo below is a collage of the three different ones I still have left. Email me if you are interested
I have finally come up for some plans for the use of my block of land, that make me feel better about it and which will hopefully rejuvenate some of my lost dreams, but first I have to get these articles out of the way and sew up a storm!
