FABRIC COLLAGE AND SEWING ON ANTIQUE AND RETRO SEWING MACHINES IN TROPICAL QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA.
Monday, August 27, 2018
There is a part of me that loves to create fabric books from old doilies and photos. I think it reminds me of my childhood in the country, visits to aunties, holidays on one particular aunt's farm, crisp starched serviettes, lace tablecloths and the sun on my face playing in the paddocks. I created this fabric book inspired by the photo of the little girl listening to the shell for the sound of the sea. I think we all remember doing that and being delighted with waves we heard when we cupped the shell to our ears.
