ansies Following my obsession with buying 80s bedroom linen from opshops, I found this doona cover a few weeks ago. I loved the colours mostly. Put it on Billies bed today and discovered its a #kendone #doublehappiness ! 5d
  •   ansies @gennybird have a look at what he's doing now Genny, it's nice 5d
  •   watersheddesign Excellent find! 5d
  •   ansies @watersheddesign yes happy! Terrible photo though isn't it, I've got so slack lately. Europe will inspire! 4d
  •   gennybird Yes I saw an interview with Ken Done & he was featured on TDF too. I love his story & approach to life @ansies as he received such a bad wrap when I was at Uni studying. Tall poopy stuff because he commercialised his art I think, & did it so successfully. He is collectable now! 4d
  •   ansies Aha yes @gennybird , well I'm lucky I've got one! And for under $5! 4d
  •   kendonegallery What a find! Thanks for all the kind words too  4d
  •   gennybird Bargain & beautiful @ansies 4d

This year I visited @gennybird @clarejamesartist and a creamiest called Betty who lives in Hoddles Creek in the most amazing property. What an inspirational day. Thanks ladies!

ansies Very excited about some designs I've had in my head for awhile that are starting turn into objects. As soon as I start more ideas flood out. Have to remind myself to #keepitsimple and not try and fit all the ideas into one thing. I think it's called patience, I'm not that familiar with it. 2w
  •   watersheddesign Yes, keep it simple is good advice - will have to send you pic of my latest creation...think I may be overdoing it! 2w
  •   ansies Theres so much experimenting to do at the start though @watersheddesign Carolyn it's hard to hold back, I get it. Send a pic! 2w
  •   3zwinkern just beautiful anna! + please tag me too @watersheddesign or even better just post the pic on ig! 2w
  •   ansies Thank Erin 2w
  •   gaylepescud I have the same ideas challenge--I want to squeeze it all into one. 2w
  •   ruthaustralia This is a lovely piece Anna, I look forward to seeing it develop. Thank you for a lovely afternoon in your beautiful home I really enjoyed it. :-) 2w

ansies Was asked by @_deborahbrandon_ to post one #fromthecuttingroomfloor This is one from last week when B and I were down the West Coast staying with friends. This is my good friend Sasha with her son Luka. He was having a moment and was discussing with mum, I secretly took a pic, but just to capture the hair texture moment. Gotta love the Afro, except when nuts are rampant at school. Argh! Cheers Deb. 3w

ansies All I've done today is feed the kid and finish this little one. #giraffedreaming 4w
  •   ansies @3zwinkern thank Erin, looking forward to Saturday! 4w
  •   ansies Sounds like a plan @ruthaustralia @_deborahbrandon_ and @gennybird ? Let's try and book in something in before I go OS? It is on til Nov though I think ... 4w
  •   gennybird Thank you for the compliment @ansies & I just went yesterday to see the Tarrawarra exhibition. My fav part was the lovely woven animals the indigenous community made with Fiona Hall. Worth a look. Check out my sculpture & the Exhibition at Oakridge Winery if you like. It's on for 3weeks. I can meet you there for coffee. @ruthaustralia should come too as she is back in the valley now. 4w
  •   gennybird This piece is very sculptural @ansies you & @ruthaustralia are on the same wavelength. After my exhibitions & YVOS is over I would love to try smthg sculptural with weaving incorporated into a piece. We should do a day together. 4w
  •   ansies Would love to do both those things @gennybird . I'll get back to you next week about Oakridge. And will definately do a day or 2 together of weaving, any days suit you better? 4w
  •   _deborahbrandon_ Thinking if you today Anna #soexciting 3w
  •   ansies @_deborahbrandon_ thanks hon, it went really well. Saw this little message from you just before starting, so that was 3w
