Give pears a chance
Autumn! But it's still so warm. Too many pears and the beginnings of a project. A tutorial in fact for Extra Curricular magazine . I think the finished result is going to be pretty. I haven't done much embroidery, but Melissa's work has always inspired me.

Communes, plums and Grandma
I was gifted a box of red fleshed plums by a friend who lives on an amazing old commune. It's now no longer a commune, but the orchards that were planted in the 70s are still there and heavy with fruit. My grandmother used to make plum sauce, and it was wha...

Vintage boogers
I turned some (not even half) of my Oma's handkercheifs into bunting. A very pretty, ladylike one and a funny, little bit weird one made up of children's hankies. I remember my grandmother used to give me a box of hankies for christmas when I was little. I'...
I turned some (not even half) of my Oma's handkercheifs into bunting. A very pretty, ladylike one and a funny, little bit weird one made up of children's hankies. I remember my grandmother used to give me a box of hankies for christmas when I was little. I'm hoping this bunting gets more use.

Flowers and tattoos
Some more flowers that my sons have brought me, plus Max's self-drawn tattoos. So he can be like Dad. He is going through a phase where he just wants to wear black. And there's a lot of gun play too. It's not all flowers, all the time! Note the hibiscus, in...

Handkerchiefs and creativity
I recently saw Fiona Pardington talk at the Auckland Art Gallery as part of White Night. The best part was hearing about her transition from film to digital photography. It's encouraging to hear an established artist admit their struggles. I highly recommen...
