book launch celebrations...

I would like to send a massive thank you to everyone who attended my book launch yesterday, and especially to the beautiful Kari for her heartfelt speech.

Also, I would like to thank Noosa Regional Gallery and staff for giving me the opportunity to host the event in the gallery.  

A few photographs to share with you...

Book Signing - Mapleton Community Library

It'll be straight back into the saddle for me on Saturday 28 Nov with a guest spot and signing to promote my book at the Mapleton Community Library's Summer Book Sale and Mini Market. With the Book Launch the previous day (Fri 27 @ Noosa Regional Gallery) it's going to be a couple of fun filled days sharing and interacting with the community.  I'll be at the Library from 8 am to 10 am, it's a free event and everyone is welcome!

I hope you can join me on one of these happy occassions...

Library display + stockists

Earlier in the week, a window of opportunity presented itself for me to showcase my work in one of the display cabinets in the Maleny Library. What perfect timing to promote my forthcoming publication Expressions of Love and Book Launch (Fri 27 Nov 2015), only 11 days from today!

Also, I am super excited to announce Rosetta Books Maleny has approved my application to sell my books - yay! So now the locals (on the range) have an easier option for purchasing a copy. (other stockists include, Books of Buderim, Caloundra Regional and Noosa Regional Gallery Gift Shops, or via my website).

Pictured below and on the right is the actual book - how excitement!

Selected works on show...

Sharing an insight into my process and how I transform ordinary used tea bags into works of art - in this case, tea bag process in preparation for spinning.  

And local chap, Petrus calls in to deliver his beautifully dried used tea bags. His previous cache incorporated into Latched with Love and in the knitting above.
