Embroidery House.

Having lived in the one house for just over 40years, I am very aware of the other homes in my neighbourhood and how they are gradually changing. I live in a house that was built in 1925 and is generically referred to as a Californian Bungalow, or Cal Bung as it's called locally. Other houses in the area date from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, with Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles thrown as well. I think it's such a shame that perfectly good houses from these earlier times are demolished to make way for the ubiquitous Great Grey Concrete Boxes (GGCB) that are being built in their places. I have decided to document some of the more interesting architectual features of these older houses before it's too late. Embroidery House, the headquarters of the Embroiderers Guild in Victoria is not likely to be demolished, but is an interesting example of a Victorian house that has been rennovated reasonably sensitively to make it suitable for use by the Guild.

Fabric Sculpture.

A group of people including myself, decided to take up the challenge as featured in a recent issue of Quilting Arts. Take a piece of fabric, quilt it, cut it up into at least 6 pieces, sew it back together again in a non-rectangular format and then construct a 3D sculpture from the altered quilted fabric. These pictures show what I did. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the original painted fabric before I quilted it.
