White Gums

Taking "Goodnight in the gully where the white gums grow" by printmaker, Jessie Traill, Australia 1881-1967, as a starting point in 2008, Lis began a series of images using merino sliver and spun yarn.
In response to a call for entries for the Braidwood Quilt Event 2009 Indoor Exhibition, she has completed an art quilt to enter in two categories ie. Lap quilt and Wall Hanging.
The two-day indoor Exhibition will be held on Saturday and Sunday, the 28-29 November, 2009 at the National Theatre,Wallace Street,Braidwood, NSW 2622.

Uluru Watercourses - Cape.



This is the last piece in the 2008-2009 Desert Collection. It is handfelted and hand dyed merino wool and silk chiffon and is reminiscent of the paths water and minerals make as they descend Uluru after the rains.

The Cape will be available at Studio Altenburg, one of Lis' Spring Wearables.

Cherry blossom time

It's Cherry blossom time on the Southern Tablelands.

Another birthday.

Gina celebrated her birthday last week with a red-themed party and lots of family and friends.
Lis made this hand felted and hand stitched merino wool and recycled kimono silk scarf to fit in with the red theme.
