I have not been sewing. I have been very busy. My work as an arts worker involved in community, disability and regional arts takes me in many directions and this last week has been a whirlwind ride. Since Thursday I have been at Kumuwuki/Big Wave in the gorgeous regional town of Goolwa. Here I have met people, made stuff, talked to artists and arts workers, eaten amazing food, traveled on the Southern Encounter train and made a few new friends. One very interesting person I met is Fee Plumley. She describes herself as a tecnoevangelist but I think she is way more than that. She is planning the reallybigroadtrip which is a fantastic project where she gets in a bus and takes ideas and technology around Australia and helps communities  think about this stuff. And she knits. (c) Leah Sutton  (and this is my next knitting project)

And I offered to make her a quilt to take on the bus- which is now officially my next project. Scrappy background with the following image appliqued on - I always knew that one day applique would become a part of my quilting journey so now is the time to start. Not so sure about the letters but I am sure I can manage the bus........



  1. hurrah! how very lovely of you to write about me and my little bus adventures! and i cannot wait to see the quilt (but no pressure ;P).

    I do have to say, the fantastic photo of the lime green bus (above) isn't mine. It is the "knitted kombivan" by Leah Sutton ( This wonderful image was the inspiration for Sayraphim Lothian's "Knit along with Fee n Me" project (which you can join in via my blog:

    Looking forward to making together sometime soon!
