My entrant in the Border Art Prize was accepted and has been part of the exhibition since late last year. It feels good to be part of a very big diverse group of artists who live in this area. I managed to get down to the gallery today to take a photo of it as the exhibition finishes tomorrow. The exhibition in its entirety looked good and I think the gallery staff have done very well to put together the 250+ pieces, in many different media, into a cohesive whole.

Last night I was crocheting whilst watching the Australian Open Tennis Tournament on TV. This was the result:
The Lichen Necklace made from two plastic bags and I still have some left over.
