SOTA18 Opening at Boonah

 First prize went to Jane Rundle
 Second - Glad Howard
 Third - Patena Moeskar (first time entrant)
 I was fortunate to have 2 pieces juried in to the exhibition - this one is hand stitched & called "Tide's Out" - inspiration from low tide in Mousehall in Devon - boats resting on the sand when the tide is out.
This one is called "Jacaranda Time" - inspired by an aerial view of Grafton, NSW at jacaranda time.  If you look closely there's a red dot on the artist's statement.  Much to my surprise , it was sold - just a tad overwhelmed but extremely happy.

Whale Festival

Last Sunday at Scarborough Beach, Redcliffe Peninsula, a Whale Festival was held.  Whale migration season will soon be happening so we had face painting, 'real' mermaids and King Neptune himself.  It was so windy & cold, we didn't stay for the outdoor movie - you guessed it, "Finding Nemo!"

2Q Challenge

My contribution to the Qld Quilters' annual Challenge.  Fabric is provided - I used it in the large turtles and it has to be cover at least 20% of the front of the quilt.  I used a drawing that my niece painted some years ago & used shashiko & perle thread for the quilting.  I found out that I was the runner up in the viewers' choice over the 3 days of our Quilt Connect Show - no prize but tickled that people liked it.
