More Little White Quilts

Well. That was quicker than I thought it would be. These quilts were based on some drawings I did last week in a little moleskine book. Suprisingly, I really enjoy drawing over the grid and combining the grid into the drawings.

Highs and Lows

The skiing at Hotham was wonderful.  I didn’t want to leave.  By the end I was going very nicely, parallel skiing down the easier blue runs and dealing with mogols without too much fuss.  🙂
Riscy took the photo above from the top of the Summit Run at Hotham looking towards Mount Feathertop.
It was a 6 hour bus ride for me to get to Hotham on Friday night, I was working in Melbourne late last week, so couldn’t drive up with everyone else on Friday morning. I got in at quarter to midnight, just in time to hire my skis and boots before the hire shop closed so I would be ready to burst onto the slopes as early as possible on Saturday morning.  We were very lucky to have our friend Wendy skiing with us, she is an excellent coach and had us really flying by the end of the weekend.  I’m keen to go back as soon as possible.
There were 14 of us staying at the apartment in the village, it was so much fun and lots of great food too!  To top the weekend off, two of the girls saw my felted scarves and are really keen to learn how to felt, so I’m gonna have them over for a feltmaking party one weekend soon!! 
I’ve got some rare time in my workroom tonight, so I’m hoping to have some more white quilts so show in the next day or so.
