My final few days in Australia were spent with Pete and Kay Lippman and Cath at Textile Artistry. Pete and Kay live in a beautiful home in McCrae overlooking Port Phillip Bay (southeast of Melbourne). The sunsets from their home were breathtaking.
Spring was just beginning so everything was starting to bloom. I was eager to see Peter and Kay's home. The last time I was here they lived a little further down the coast in Sorrento. But, I can certainly see why they love McCrae.
This picture is of Pete, Kay, Robbie and Tess. The paintings on the wall are all done by Kay. She works in oils and also does fantastic felting. She's an extremely talented woman.
My weekend class was at Textile Artistry in Dromana. I had another fun time. One gal, Jan, took the ferry from Geelong for my class. Jan had been in my class last month in Geelong. It was terrific seeing her again. Cath, the owner of the shop, was a joy. Kay used to own the shop and I had seen it soon after Kay had signed the lease several years ago. It was then empty. Now, it is full of wonderful "stuff" and Cath has carried on with all the great classes and supplies that Kay developed. Plus, Cath has added a lot of her own touches. If you are ever in Victoria and driving down the eastern side of the bay, stop in. There's so much to get inspired here.
Later I'll be adding photo's of some of the dolls, wearables, wall-hangings, quilts I saw and fell in love with. Way too many to share, but once I figure out how to do a slide show, I'll get them all posted.
