As a member of the Internet group Aus-NZartquilts, our monthly challenge for 2008 were A4 size Journal Quilts. We were asked to choose 5 Journal Quilts to be displayed throughout Australia at various Quilt Shows.
Our Journals were returned last week after travelling all over the country.
I love this time of year, crisp mornings, blue skies and the leaves changing colour and falling.
St Kilda Road is my favourite place to walk down during Autumn.
I feel angry when I see trains painted by vandals. The sad thing is, some of these vandals are very clever artists.
There should be a place set aside for them to paint without destroying public property.
I remember as a child picking dandelions and blowing the seed fairies to make a wish. It was a simple game.
Sadly, children don't seem to play as much outside these days.
As a child I collected seedpods. I sailed them down our open street drain amongst the tadpoles and I hand fed our 2 wild kookaburras each morning.
I had an amazing childhood in the bush. Simple games kept us occupied for hours on end.
"FROM ORGANISED TO DISORGANISED"
From an organised strip of foundation pieced flying geese to a disorganised piece made up of scraps. From one extreme to the other.
At times I am too organised, I need to break the cycle.
Special thanks to Buffy and Helen for organising the display our Journal Quilts.
