Dance of the ...

Today a friend and I travelled to the Royal Cranbourne Botanic Gardens to see the textile exhibition that was on. It finishes tomorrow, so we just got there in time.
(If we ever become a republic, it will cost a fortune to rename so many places!)

The textile show was mainly quilts but there was a competition featuring bags. The public votes and the winner gets a wonderful Bernina sewing machine.

There were some beautiful bags there, making it very hard to choose.

Because is it the Australian Botanic Gardens, all the works had to have an Australian theme.

There were some gorgeous quilts there too, some done by hand, some machine made and some a mixture.

One of my favourites featured some life-size, rather large, gum leaf images. It was called Dance of the Blue Gum Fairy Leaves, by Beth Smith.

It inspired some actual dancing!
