In flight

This piece was my entry to the Australian Beaders competition - the kit sort of stumped me there for a while, but in the last week before posting it finally came to me what to do. I had also recently received a copy of Beverly Ash Gilberts gorgeous book "Beaded Colorways" and it has inspired so much. I ended up making a bit of a bead soup with the beads from the kit and adding some blue seedies into the mix ... it worked, which is really good coz I didn't fancy picking out all those blues from the soup LOL. This is my first foray into freeform beadweaving, and I'm hoping to do alot more in the future.

Newspaper article

On Monday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by one of the journos from our local paper. I fully expected that it would a normal sized article with perhaps one photo. Well yesterday I got the surprise of my life when I opened the paper and saw this. To put it simply, I was completely gobsmacked and totally stoked all at the same time.

It's quite humbling seeing ones work shown like this.
