Naturaliste is Finished

Naturaliste is finished all bar the label and sleeve.



It's become a memory quilt of a wonderful holiday in Western Australia visiting our son Chris last November.  The bright colours and the clarity of the air.  On Naturaliste itself there have been many fires and the scrub is either blackened or scoured white but the shapes are fabulous and there is always the sign of new growth.

On the reverse in the quilting where few will see are other more personal memories.  The evening at Bunkers Bay where we saw whales jumping around an anchored tall ship, the numerous Shingleback skinks and the wiggly sand path Chris put down to try and fox John!!!


It is 30" x 18".  Don't forget you can click the pictures to enlarge and you may even see some of the beading.
