I am one of the artists featured in the on-line magazine called The Digital Cloth issue 8. It is a great art textile magazine produced by Australian textile artist Caroline Sharkey.

I was very honoured to be included because there are always so many wonderful artists featured. I speak mostly about my Coral Reef series of quilts. The magazines are jammed packed with lots of photos and articles by various artists from countries around the world and not very expensive either. A great value e-magazine.
I have done a couple of other articles for different groups lately. One is coming out this month for my local quilting group, Waverley Patchworkers monthly newsletter. I also did an article for our Oceania SAQA group about my studio. It's not really a studio, I took over the rumpus room when my children grew up. I really love being in that room though.
Before I took over the rumpus room, I used to use my larger than normal laundry, now I use that area for dyeing and preparations for sun printing.
The funny thing is, I took some photos and was disappointed at how messy my room looks when I am in the middle of creating a quilt. So I had to tidy up and take the photos again!
Here is where I do my designing at one end of our old table tennis table. I use the table tennis table for basting my quilts.
I have two sewing machines set up all the time and I work from one to the other.

I have one wall of cupboards for all my fabrics. Here is a photo of one of the double cupboards.
