Two gallery entries

I have two very different pieces going into Galleries one in Brisbane and the other at Beaudesert .. other than that I have been busy with my other job at Eden Seeds

This piece is nuno felted on tissue silk ( using techniques taught by Vilte)

 

This leaf imprint is going into a compact exhibition the piece has to fit into a CD case

 

Zest Fest

I am on the organizing committee for a local festival aptly named ” Zest Fest ” (all our citrus is ripe now ) we show case all things local and give our little community a main street for a day. Beechmont does not have a shop front, no convince store. Its a 20 k drive to the nearest shops. This will be my last market for a while …. and my order for recycled Sari Ribbon ( along with silk and mordants ) arrived in time and it  is being knitted into necklaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also ordered some felters gauze a very loosely woven cotton muslin that I have sandwich with wool roving and embellished with some locally spun wool. I have a big day of rolling in front of me, think it will be a foot job !!

Too Busy to Blog

My absence from the key board and camera (only 2 posts for May ) is that my next gig  (Open Studio at Wallaby Ridge Retreat this weekend 2nd and 3rd June ) is here and I desperately needed new stock …… so I have been toiling away with the bubble wrap and soap.

 

Those Shrunken Jumpers

I am still at it……. can’t go past an op shop without a peek for a woollen jumper or a silk scarf. Ula and I had a crafty day,  I made my first cut into the Wollies that I have tortured  in the washing machine. The sleeves make great phone holders and we tried out a couple of Teddie patterns. One of the jumpers was an Aran in cream and I will get one handbag ans two cushion covers from it, all in readiness for my stall at Art in the Olives on May 13th.

 

I have nuno felted these two stoles in readiness for my busy months ahead … Three markets in Two months !!

 

 

“Cardinal Convert”

Well it is finished and I’m about to deliver the ” Cardinal Convert ” table runner to Irene @ the centre.

The silk scarf that is the base came from an op shop and has been embellished with silk scraps, wool roving  and thread then felted together, I also did  some detail stitching and beading.

The exhibition opens for a month @ The Centre at Beaudesert  from 29th February  ….www.liveatthecentre.com

 

 

Nuno Felt on Silk and Cotton

I have been busy felting my little heart out. I had a special order (which has been dispatched ) but wanted to  share with you.The use of re purposing an op shop scarf into the scarf. I am really happy with the result and it has given me some new ideas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have almost finished the piece that will go in the opening exhibition for the Open Studios ( Scenic Rim Council) It was to be a shawl/ stole but has shrunk too much…. so now it is a table runner / wall hanging, I want to finish it with some stitching and beading.

And lastly I have found a lovely soft green muslin cotton shawl that I have lightly embellished  with wool and a little silk, a great look for a summer evening.
