I don't know why I haven't done this sooner....
my group's exhibition starts NEXT week!
This morning we set up a little display in the window of a local bank.
Not sure which I like more:
the quilts or the streetscape.
It's like the old whatsitcalled....

First, grow some lavender (or pop 'round here).
Cut some long straight stalks, an uneven number.
I have nine.
You need a length of ribbon about 1/4" or 7mm wide,
at least a metre.
Tie the bunch tightly
keeping one end the length of the bunch plus enough to tie a bow.
Then fold the stalks down while weaving the ribbon.....under
then over the stalks,
When you get to the end of the lavender wrap the ribbon round
and tie a bow.
Then trim off the ends.

Today I went for a drive in the country to Ararat.
That's about an hour away.
It was a lovely day: not hot and not cold.
(We've all had a bit of weather lately haven't we?)
I am really inspired by the colours I saw today.
I went to see an exhibiton at the Ararat Art Gallery.

I loved this piece. The brief decription said:
Linen cloth, indigo, reactive and discharge dyes.
Machine pieced and hand quilted (tacked)
And I loved this small piece.
Underneath was a "ken" doll.
Pop over here for more photos.
