2000 – 2004
In 2000 I issued the first part of a challenge at annual Hi-fibre Retreats at Port Hughes.
Participants had to make a house block before the next years retreats,
when the instructions were to add a path border, then in following years
a garden and finally a fence.
Almost every technique available was used in this wall hanging,
and hand made buttons were purchased from Llewena Newell,
who also ‘retreats’ each year.
No fabrics were purchased for this project, they all came out of the cupboard.
The finished projects were gathered together in July and August of 2004,
by which time a new challenge was underway.
