In an earlier blog I wrote about making a hat for my grand-nephew well he looks great in it don't you think?
I am not quite sure what HE thinks!?
While in Ballarat I went to visit my friend Barbara in her new place..these are the views from her verandah

Not bad ?

And this from me who is moving to the inner city....we are so mixed up.

I really admire the people I know who know what they want from their Art/Craft, I vacillate from paper to painting to stitching and so on and the eternal line drawing of the art/craft dychotomy seems impossible to resolve.

Here are some triangle books and the middle photo is rolled Japanese paper...into string, I am going to try knitting with it and see how it goes.

This piece was made by my friend, Julia, (of Easter and Korean fame) in Susan Shapiros class of reverse applique, the circle was a piece of mirror work I bought from India.

These were 2 installations at the forum the first is made by the lovely Susan Holmes and she had these bright creations all around the campus.

This last photo was the table on the last day with the class's work.

I am afriad there was not much colour in this post....will address it in the next one.

Oh, I like making book too! We are alike, fingers in every art medium.... all the more fun.

Thanks Leslie and Miriam
Barbara is not the one you know India, I wish she were but she does not have much interest for our fun pursuits.
Heartfire, Do you feel it frustrating though I do I should like to be a bit more centred

All these great photos!
Thanks for favouriting me.

Ballarat eh, nice co-incidence. I was researching the family tree for someone here in Canada whose great great uncle was the Presbyterian minister in Ballarat about 100 years ago with the name of McKay.
