Hello, my name is Dianne, and I welcome you to my new blog :
Eat – Play – Quilt
It is a place where I will share with you all the things which I love and make me happy in life .
Something which has made me really, really happy over the past couple of months has been travelling around this great, big, wonderful country with some very good friends.
(At the Bungle Bungles)
A place which has become a favourite of mine is Middle Lagoon, on the Dampier Peninsular in Western Australia.
Middle Lagoon is maintained and run magnificently by the local indigenous community of that region. The scenery is awesome.

Heaven on Earth
This year we drove right into the Bungle Bungles in Purnululu National Park. It involves driving through the station of “Mabel Downs” and the road is extremely rocky and rough. 4WD only.
It was the highlight of the trip for me.
Before we went away I worked on 2 small art quilts and finished them off in the past couple of days.
Turkish Tea was made for the display of ‘Time for Tea & Quilts’ at our annual Toowoomba Quilter’s exhibition in September. The background is made up of recycled tea bags and some hand painted and stamped fabric.
Self Portrait “Daydreamer”
Our Art quilt group will be having a display of portraits at the exhibtion so I have made this self portrait for the display.
It is a photo image transfer from a digitized photo (done by my good friend Shirley) The clothing is done using fabric scraps sewn between two sheets of solvy. The photo is a bit ‘wonky’ but, I assure you, the sides and top and bottom are all the same width
Until next time….
