Einstein's Theory of Making (under tough conditions)

Well there you go ... another market over and done with, superbly crafted and hats off to the administration. Justine and your team you are amazing!
It was indeed a hot day but as my dear friend Ellen once pointed out, it's not that it's hot it's not minding that it's hot.

And today is even hotter but due to the fact that the Bazaar at Fremantle Arts Centre is on this weekend I have been keeping up the pace in the studio - unpacking from yesterday's Upmarket, deciding what needs to be done and getting back to making. The surprising thing though is that it all feels quite enjoyable.

Would you believe that by the close of business today, thoughts of Einstein's Theory of Relativity had popped into my head. Not that I know much about it, but my version and particular experience of the passing of time as occurred today while I was stitching the binding on a quilt I thought could not possibly be finished by Friday (opening day at Bazaar) seemed to touch on the paradox…

To and From

TO all of you FROM Yuniko Studio! 
To let you know that I will be at Perth Upmarket at the end of this month and then Bazaar at the Fremantle Arts Centre in the first weekend of December.
I continue to be inspired by working with recycled materials and today I made a few cards as you see in the photo, which are made by layering fabrics from trousers, ties and kimonos, as well as the left-overs from larger sewing projects. I stamped the TO and FROM inside, as the cards are small and I thought would be good for gift tags for presents.
