The exhibition opening this afternoon was a great success. There was a Fashion Parade of some of the wearable art which was very hard to photograph with the number of people present, so I just took some pics of a few of the exhibits before too many arrived. The following was on the catalogue-
"Textures,Textiles and Treasures represents the diversity of talent within Darling Downs Spinners, Weavers, Felters and Wearable art practitioners. Spinning, weaving and hand dyeing are just a few of the skills utilised to create this exhibition."


Now the recipient of this quiltie has received it, I can post a pic here. It went all the way to Di in England. Hence the chosen subject, Aussie wildflowers. I started with a crazy-pieced block and mostly free-embroidered the flowers with DMC threads and silk ribbon. I was happiest with the way the waratah in the centre turned out.

Later today or tomorrow, I will hopefully be posting some pics of our latest local Art Gallery opening, which I'm attending this afternoon.
