Currently I am in that limbo state where I've sold my house and bought another, but neither contract in yet unconditional, I have no control over what is happening, and I have to wait another week or so before I know where I am. I find this very frustrating.
I've taken most of my quilts down off the walls, but this one, Pacifica, is one of the few that remains. I made this in a class by Donna Ward at Christchurch Symposium several years ago. The top and bottom panels were Donna's designs, but I drew the "koru" style (fern frond) applique for the centre panels. These also remind me of the geysers in Rotorua where I lived for 28 years before moving to the South Island.
Keep your fingers (and toes) crossed for me that my sale and purchase go ahead as planned. In the new house, I'll have a separate room to store my dyes and fabric in, as well as a nice big room for a workroom/office/studio. It's upstairs, faces north (the good way here in NZ) has sliding doors onto a little balcony with snow-capped mountain views, and the chimney passes through the room as well, keeping it warm. Currently it's the master bedroom - but why waste all that on a room you only sleep in?
