Hilary Peterson at this week's Contextart Forum was part of my Queensland Regional Arts Award prize. It has been an wonderful, exhausting and stimulating few days - learning more about natural dyes and being with seven like minded artists ... experimenting with silks, wool, linen and various papers. Thank you Hilary, Janet de Boer, TAFTA and Flying Arts Alliance Inc for this incredible experience.

Sue Dennis a few weeks ago - interesting textile that feels like suede without the nap - perhaps chamois is a better description. Sue used them when dyeing fabrics - they've captured her dyeing life quite well. I started stitching, then printing. layering, cutting and stamping - followed by more stitching. I think the "wrong" side" is far more interesting than the "right side" on so many levels. This is an experimental piece - while I ponder the next iteration. Thank you Sue.

Mel Forrest - and spent a lot of time talking about One of Many featured in the latest issue of Down Under Textiles. Layers of a different kind this afternoon as we missed a storm heading out to the coast and Brisbane. Great light show!
