Absence

My mother has sold her house in Adelaide and that will mean I will be over there for about 3 weeks leaving in a couple of weeks....now in past lives that would OK but how will I manage without a computer and the internet. How much a vital part of our life it is ....and now with blogs......! I sit here restless waiting in anticipation for the painter to arrive and ......books everywhere with the sincere intention of culling.!!?*(Just heard he can't come!!!???*)

This is the piece I did titled "Fish" for the group 4 letter word, I have taken a photo of the frame and mount as I am unsure if it works in this old fashioned framing...it was one I had.

The piece is in commercial felt,and embellished (with Carolyn's embellishing) machine , dyed chiffon and small hand embroidered ...Fish!

Here is a collage with some detail. Hard to see as it is behind glass. This is another of my dolls, for those who know her work you will understand how excited I am to be doing Sue Dove's workshop next year

The detail in the painting looks great and your doll is divine. I love her painted body. I've just realized you are probably the lady, coming with Jo, to take my workshop on Saturday, look forward to seeing you then.

Your fish collage is gorgeous, thanks for the close ups.
