Tapestry Blues

For those who don't follow Debbie Herd's Blogsite:  There was a tapestry exhibition in Adelaide, Australia from June to July sponsored by the Hand Spinners and Weavers Guild of SA.  Tapestry weavers from Australia and New Zealand created 47 tapestries that may be seen at:

So much beautiful work!!

Too bad the exhibit is over....I was thinking maybe I could start working on an excuse to visit Australia!!! (OK, maybe we don't want to leave Bailey behind for long enough to do Australia justice).

Sue - I so understand. We are heading to New Zealand and we are in the throws of trying to figure out Shadow! There are nights I just look at him and think how much I'll miss him!

Valerie - thanks for the link. I also follow Marilyn, but I did not see her name readily in this exhibit - maybe I missed it.

Yes that's the one i did the blue wedge weave for. There's another one coming up for next year, where we're supposed to do a 'self portrait' of sorts. Yikes! It's for all Aussie and NZer tapestry weavers wherever they may be.

K - I was excited to see the blue wedge weave again! I look forward to next years. Remember self portraits can be representative!

Wow, so inspiring!!! THank you for the link and you're going to New Zealand!!! Wheeee. How fun. How long
will the trip be? Shadow will miss you and you him, but I'm sure it will all be fine.
BTW, some of the quilting that comes out of down under is awe inspiring too. Some amazing artists in all
mediums.
