  1. What stunning pieces of art . . . I love the humour and subtlety of “One Jumped” and the hours that must go in to each one simply staggers me.

  2. Jane Bodnaruk says:

    Carolyn Sullivan never fails to amaze, Diane Firth is showing a subtle shift, and I love Margaret Wallace’s Snowy R

  3. Thrilled to say that both Dianne and Caroline are in a group I belong to so I get to see some of their background work. All these pieces are stunning! Thanks for the photos.

    that map is incredible!

    • Mo Crow says:

      it is, love the contrast between the soft recycled wool and the shimmer of the midnight blue satin and the exquisitely rendered detail, interesting that the quilts that caught my eye speak about different aspects of the Australian landscape

  5. Carol says:

    Speechless! Absolutely stunning…
