One Red Thread, Berry Textiles Art Prize - the run up is too short, the photo required with the application is unnecessary and you need more time.
So...... with all that in mind, ok - I've taken it all in - you need more time, can't get a photo of your work as you are too busy trying to create it, and? So here's the result...........
I've extended the closing date for One Red Thread to 30 July. If you think that's still too soon then I will talk about it with you next month. Ok, you don't need to send a photo - there, does that make you feel a little better? No excuses now!!!
I have so many ideas running around in my head, but Carolyn tells me I'm not allowed to enter. But really, don't you think I can enter if I put a big sign saying NOT TO BE JUDGED? I'm actually thinking I might recycle a piece that I made a few years back; recycle in the sense of changing it, adding to it, making it more......... but I can't tell you what it is.....yet!
|One Red Leaf|
Have a look where my Boston Ivy is this week with the change in the season, the severe weather, the wind & the rain........just one red leaf ;-)
I'm really addicted to this plant - don't you think this photo is amazing? It's actually the way it looks hanging off the outside of my house. I hope Mr Smith never wants to paint!
BERRY QUILTING RETREAT - 8 & 9 September, is coming along very well. All the classes are filling so don't put your decision off too for too much longer if you are sitting on the fence pondering what class to join. Just to remind you who is coming along: Sarah Fielke, Pam Furniss, Julie Haddrick, Kay Haerland, Dianne Johnston, Deborah Louie, Caroline Sharkey & Linda Steele. It's going to be a lot of fun and the only problem I see is that there will be so much to do that we'll all be exhausted from wanting to do everything!
Carolyn Collins & Dorothy Hanbridge who are both my partners in crime are still considering which class they will enroll in - and I have to admit, that I'm thinking I might have to join in too! I am leaning a lot towards those gorgeous Kokeshi Dolls of Julie's or The Burbs by Sarah Fielke. I won a Zumba party at the Berry Quilt Show last month and have pondered if we should all get together on the Friday night to have a Zumba party to kick the weekend off? How much fun would that be?

I've noticed that some of you are a bit worried about accommodation for the Berry Quilting Retreat and perhaps we could suggest that if accommodation is hard to find, that we create a billot file of some people who would consider offering a spare room for the weekend? What do you think? Reece Scannell has already snapped up my loft!
There were so many other wonderful traders at the AQM and I let my hair down and spent time and money with lots of them. Gosh, when I emailed Sue who was working back at Berry Patchwork she started to panic where we would put it all!!!
Natalie Bird's Stand "The Birdhouse" was as always beautifully arranged. Natalie is such a talented designer and then I met up with Annie Downs who also had the most beautiful stand. They both caste their magic and it's too hard to resist!
|A Simple Life|
I had so many things on my list to do today and with the gorgeous sunshine, I spent most of the time following up things for the Retreat and writing this blog - it was nice to sit and just take time today and not rush around like a mad chook.
Have a great long weekend - if you call into the shop, I'll be playing with my new panel from Reece Scannell and making a start on my version of "The Simple Life"!
