This little gem pop up in front of me via Facebook with Weaving Poetry’s Emily Wilkinson and it is gorgeous .. the cover is cloth. I wish to take my Wednesday Play Day group down this little path with a collaboration for a piece of community art. So now I have the help via Cas Holmes and Anne Kelly in a book that covers Resonant Textiles, Exhibitions and Community Collaborations.
This is the tree that Beechmont was named after .. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmelina_leichhardtii They are rare and hard to germinate the lovely purple skin does not give colour … but the leaf is very shapely. When we discovered a huge tree in the Numinbah Valley, I was very excited as it meant that I would get to try the leaf at long last and I will pass the seed onto a local guy who is a wiz at propagation.
some lovelies arrived yesterday and my hands are itching ..
