Lots of good things
Well, at least I thought so. Put the quilting aside to work on Farmyard Stack. This is an easy quilt to put together. Square in a Square blocks next, then four patch.
Discovered the website for Living Creatively - okay I'm behind the times on this one but lots of interesting stuff including this
A bracelet made from typewriter keys from Mrs Smith jewellery. Unfortunately, the link on the website is broken.
Also featured is Tara Badcock from The Teacosy Revolution. Tara is a textile artist and her work is exciting. She has a particular fondness for creating or transforming the ubiquitous tea cosy and some of her works will be on display at the Sydney Stitches & Craft Show.
You can read the on-line article about Tara here. I'm looking forward to seeing Tara's work up close. She uses an interesting combination of textures and free motion embroidery in her pieces - even the odd exotic feather.
Last, but not least, I *discovered* Ink & Spindle - three incredibly talented Melbourne textile designers. They will be at the Stitches & Craft Show also. Here's their blog.
