I have been creating my Mermaid for a long time and I think she should go on the blog even though she isn't finished. She is hand painted on bleached calico. Quilted by Esther Strelan on her long arm quilter. I have embellished the tail with large aqua sequins and the fin is small aqua sequins. Beads in her hair and beading on the wrist. I have a long way to go but its a start. She is 2 1/2 meters long and 1.50wide.

On 16th and 17th July I held a Flower Garden workshop out at Gatton. What a great weekend. I met some wonderful ladies and the first day we started getting our backgrounds dyed. This workshop always surprises me with the beautiful array of colours and they all turn out different from each other. On our second day we started with practice on our free machining. I really enjoyed this workshop. I have some photos to share. Special thanks to all the girls from Gatton.
