inspirations 4

in june i posted some photos of mine which i hope will provide inspiration for my fibre and textile art; this is the 4th post on the subject

a boardwalk on eaglehawk neck, tasmania –

a jetty in orford, tasmania

a flight of steps outside the national gallery in melbourne, victory –

and another flight of steps near federation wharf in melbourne, victoria –


lemon rose

here is another early attempt at crochet jewelry

the variegated green and brown thread was originally embroidery on a knitted top, which was unpicked and wound into balls

the rose is done in a pale lemon yellow

simple chain ties are embellished with square wooden beads


leaves + hardware

this is one of my early experiments in making crochet jewelry – a bracelet with leaves, and embellishments from the hardware section of our supermarket

a family member modelled it for me

i used a pewter coloured crochet cotton which I love

i also made a little envelope for it


beauty in decay

i photographed this amazing shed (and surrounding out-buildings) in deloraine, tasmania

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

apparently the big shed used to be the milk depot for the surrounding farms

these buildings show that there is beauty in decay

postal art

a textile artist friend and i decided to exchange handmade postcards for a year and a half

they all made it through the mail unscathed without envelopes

here are some of mine (we set no rules except for the size, which was 4 in x 6 in)
