Finally I have been able to load the picture for the Zebra!! (G354) This is part of our Global range, and I wanted to share with you the behind the scenes activity with this particular piece!
With most shows that I do, I have a tendancy to work on a new design, which was the case when I was working down the Gold Coast, and had just started doing the Zebra's. I had stitched the 'head' of the main zebra, when the lass doing the promotion, came past on the loud speaker, encouraging folk to come and see this 'Great design being stitched of a Giraffe'!! Well guess it bought a smile to my face along with a big question mark?? The following week, after the main Zebra was finished along with other parts of the design, it was propped up in the office, so I could look at it, and work out the next step. A customer came in 'Oh, Lorna, that giraffe looks soo good!' ?? Then a few days later, when the accountant called in, her remark was the same!! I had to laugh, but also challenged her, a giraffe?? Why did she say Giraffe? Maybe she could unravel the mystery as to why so many saw the wrong animal! She suspected that as both are found in Africa, and often together, that the mind associated them together! It still brings a smile to my face when I see the picture, and wonder how many others see a giraffe in this design? You can smile with me!
Favorites from the African jungle, these Zebra's are bold against the bush. Printed on Sage green fabric, in Size '3'. (30 x 40 cm / 11.8" x 15.7"). Another from our Global Range.
And this coming weekend, 30th June - 2nd July, I will be working at the Redcliffe Show, just north of Brisbane. I will be working on a new design called 'Cheryl's Vases', size 3, and it will be interesting to hear what people have to say about this one! Expect it to be finished and released before the end of this year.
It's Show Time in Ipswich(Qld) this weekend, when I will be working on a new design, if in the area, do pop in and say Hi!
This will be followed with a Hands-On Class on Tuesday 30th May, in the Augustine Heights Area, love to have you join us.
Brisbane EKKA is coming up in August, and entries for the Craft section close this week, so make sure you get your submissions in. Also with Redcliffe Show having a 'Bunka' Section, there is another opportunity to display your finished work. Prizes at both shows, and you have to be in it to win it.
Note for regulars, that classes on the Northside of Brisbane will need you to confirm dates, as our regular Thursdays is not working out at this point in time.
Talk again soon,
In the meantime, happy Bunka- ing
It's Easter again. The flooding is past tense, and things are returning to 'normal' whatever that is!!
The next month has many holidays to negotiate, with Good Friday/ Easter Monday coming up fast, then the following week we will be closed for Tuesday 25th for Anzac Day, and the next Monday 1st May is another holiday here in Queensland! This will have an effect on mail out of orders, that might not get through as quickly as normal.
Classes are back to normal, so Bethania (26th April) Murrumba Downs (20th April, 10 a.m.) Chermside (20th April, 1 p.m.) and Augustine Heights (2nd May 10 a.m.)
I will be working at the Jimboomba Art & Craft Festival, Sat. 29th April, 9 - 1, JC Family Church, Cnr Merton & Tamborine Sts.
Also at the Ipswich Show, 19 - 21 May, 2017. Time to see the new designs, and pick up some extra hints!
As you may know, there has been considerable rain and wind in south East Queensland, after the passing of Cyclone Debbie. Despite all the terrible weather we are well, safe and dry. However we cannot travel safely and we have closed the shop, the factory and the office for a few days whilst all the weather conditions and after effects ease.
As things settle down we will get back to work again!
See you soon.
Lorna and the Team.
