A First for Me


I am so excited to announce that my quilt Solar Flare which is part of the State of the Art Exhibition currently touring Queensland was sold during the Textile Arts Festival in Brisbane this weekend.

I am thrilled that I got to meet the purchaser who is going to hang it in her healing centre where she says it will give pleasure to many.

This is my first major sale and I hope the first of many. There are others on my website if you are interested.
