Spring has sprung


This week we've had very wintery weather but today was better, so this afternoon we went to Araluen, a garden not far from us, to check out the tulips which were impressive.






We unexpectedly ran into DH's brother and sister in law who were taking his Mum to see the tulips.




There were also beautiful magnolias, azaleas, camelias, rhododendrums as well as the native flora.





Yesterday, while picking up my Uncle from his care home to take him for an X ray, I noticed these sculptures outside.


I'm busy for the next couple of weeks getting everthing finished for the Wongan Hills Art and Craft Exhibition 2012 because I'm going to be one of their guest artists this year. It's on Thursday 20th until Sunday 23rd September. The piece I'm working on is 1.4metres long x 40cms wide - all free machine stitching on soluble vilene.

Hi, Linda. Congratulations on being a guest artist. It's well deserved. Lovely spring photos--here it's fall, but like a second spring because the temperatures have dropped a bit but it's still warm and pleasant. Very interesting sculpture, too.
best, nadia

Summer just making it's exit here in middle America. We are finally getting some much needed rain. Wonderful to see all the flowers come to life.

Fabulous driftwood & I haven't seen tulips for 6m!

How I'd love to come to your Thursday morning classes & take your breakdown printing w/s - your students made some wonderful cloth.
