Japanese inspired jacket

My jacket won a third place at Sydney's Royal Easter Show this week.
Even better news my 13 year old daughter won First prize for her dress and it has been put in the standards of excellence case - I am very proud of her.

Ra-inspired by royalty, Egyptian

I think this is one of my favourite cushions. It is a homage to Ra the Egyptian Sun God. The fabrics used are satins which magically change to a suede appearance once punched.

Autumn octagon

New ruler, used to make patchwork centrepiece.

HOC 4 - new colours, new threads

In the Heat of the night, Scrumbled shawl

In the Heat of the night, detail

Scrumbling has been described as patchwork with yarns. Most of my work is crocheted as I find this gives wonderful textures easily and quickly.
I teach Scrumbling - contact me for class details.

I have been having a break from pillows, and have just finished my entries for the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Japanese inspired jacket - foundation piecing, piping, embroidery and wonderful fabrics make up this reversible jacket.
In the heat of the night - scrumblied shawl - in shades of red, crochet using many stitches and yarns to give wonderful texture.
Punched pillow - Another HOC style pillow, as I had to be anonymous and all the others are signed.
