Nature and ATASDA Textile pieces

Hi All - I am just about surviving the Summer heat here - One of the hottest on record! Here are some pics - the foxglove is a photo I took in the UK last July - not just any old Foxglove though as this one was growing in BeatrixPotter's Garden at "Hill Top Farm", Near Sawrey, Cumbria (that was my second visit to Hill Top - just a gorgeous garden :D) the other 2 pics are of a "Tower" made by a friend at ATASDA (Australian Textile Art and Surface Design Association (WA Branch)) her name is Averil it looked a lot better in reality - these photo's don't show how rich the colours are ad yes that is an Xmas bauble sitting in the top - cool idea :D - I missed the meeting in October when they had a mini workshop with Lyn on these towers/ totem poles :( boohoo! The things they did were stunning - so stay tuned for a couple more pics in next blog posts :D
