This is the first time a Bromeliad has flowered in our garden but there is another one on the way now. They were given to us by Jennie Abbott, well known WA textile artist. I had no idea the flowers would be so gorgeous.
I have been rather busy helping out my parents and looking after my DH who is having chemo therapy for Lymphoma, which is the reason I've been neglecting my blog and not reading other blogs as much either. Thanks to my readers for continuing to read and especially for commenting. I do appreciate feedback and those who follow my blog.
I've just done a new post on the Designing Women blog - hope you'll have time to look here.
I was pleased to get my piece finished for the Minnawarra art award which officially opens tomorrow and continues until the weekend in the Armadale town hall.
I'm also continuing with some teaching - had a great time a few weeks ago teaching a free machine embroidery workshop at home for 2 lovely women. I have another workshop coming up on June 1st at the Stirling Art Centre in Bunbury. Its all about thermofax printing. You can print some fabric for yourself using my screens or you could order a screen with your own design to use. This is not necessary for the workshop which is a good opportunity to learn about it and try it before ordering.
We will be printing with textile printing inks as well as trying some discharge printing and the class still has some places available.
My Thursday morning textiles class at Canning Vale is continuing too.
