New work

These are some of my fabrics in progress drying on the clothesline. Not finished yet, although the front one with the spots is getting there. They're all very much experimental pieces and I'm enjoying the process. I've used thickened procion dyes for the printing.
The above machine embroidered piece is from the "It's About Time" exhibition at the Old Bakery on 8th Gallery. We went to the opening on Sunday and it was a lovely sunny afternoon which was nice as they have an outdoor courtyard where they have the openings.
This piece "Fallen Log Study" has already sold so I'm posting the pic. My take on the exhibition theme was the effects of time, weathering, erosion etc. The other artists had some interesting and different ideas. There were a couple of other textile people, also paintings, sculpture, jewelery, etc.
On Saturday we had the Innovative Stitches exhibition "Tragedy Treasure and Trade" opening which was a successful event, enough people, nice food again, and people were enjoying the work on show.
