Today I donated this wall hanging for auction to help raise money for the family of one of the women I wrote about and made a piece for in my last blog post. Her circle of women have rallied around her in the most inspiring ways, one of which includes organising a huge party and auction this Sunday.
Using the same processes as my last two pieces, I again featured Lauren Burch's Celestial Dreams fabrics, as well as an indigenous Australian print Yalke Blue (meaning Bush Onion) by June Smith for M&S Textiles. You can read about June and her work here.
I forgot to measure it before posting it off, but I think it measures about 16" x 10". I sewed on a rod pocket, inserted a piece of dowel and tied on cord so it can be hung by it's new (hopefully very generous!) owner.
You can find out more about the auction and how to help this family on this Facebook event page.
