Wise Women En Masse

As regular visitors to this blog know, I am preparing for an exhibition "Wise Women" celebrating International Women's Day on 8 March. I had a crazy idea to ask creative friends to contribute by decorating a string of paper dolls which will adorn the skirting boards of the gallery and I have been overwhelmed by the response, especially from the Newcastle Creative Embroiderers and Textile Artists (NCEATA) . All of these dolls will be silent auctioned  with the funds raised going to a local charity Penola House, which supports refugee women in our community. I thank all the artists not only for their talented contributions, but also for their generosity.  Please come to the exhibition  at Timeless Textiles on 8 March -25 March to see these all displayed and perhaps make a bid for a good cause. There will of course be many other beautiful art works to appreciate.

And not forgetting my tag this week for TAG TUESDAY  which had Valentine's Day as its theme.
 This is a very simple tag - just an image cut out from a magazine, with a polymer clay heart for the tip of the arrow, sponged with  butterscotch ink, and lined with lace which was gift from blog friend, Judy.


  1. Love your tag Wilma, and those paper dolls are fabulous.What a great idea!

  2. Just to let you know that the new word verification text is so hard to read!! I had to try three times to get it right.Wonder if that's putting people off commenting.I've found it hard to comment on lots of sites for the same reason.
