Happy new year everyone! Bit late, I know, but I've been taking a wee break.

My pieces on display are:
'Contoured Quilts' (seen at Chch Quilt Symposium 2017) - FOR SALE 'Mindless Meander' (seen at Changing Threads, Nelson 2017)
'Wind, Waves and Hills' (seen at NZ Academy of Fine Arts 2017) - FOR SALE

REPOST
・・・
Our Staff Exhibition is still on display at @nancysstitchstudio if you haven't popped in to see it yet.
We have such a variety of creative skills here at Nancy's and it's so nice to have the opportunity to show you all what our own creative passions are.

The exhibition will be on until Jan 30th and there's even a few artworks up for sale! Please inquire if you're interested.

So you know how you can't take scissors on a plane with you... I have a fabulous Clover thread cutter pendant that you can wear on a necklace and take on board but do you think I could find it yesterday? ... No. Haha. So this is the less stylish version of a thread cutter pendant... Dental floss!

I like to think of myself as a bit of an amateur photographer as well. I just love texture so damn much! And taking gorgeous photos of textiles is really satisfying at the end of a project. So I had a wee photoshoot of my 'Mindless Meander' pieces before sending them off.

Contour Quilt Series by Anna Hicks, 2017 "This series started as a therapeutic distraction. Something to mindlessly stitch as a way to unwind. The meditative process of slowly stitching, up and down, up and down, lowers the heart rate and clears the head, even if just for a few brief moments." Currently in the Changing Threads at @the_refineryartspace in Nelson.
Exhibition runs until 25 March 2017.

Thanks to a couple of people for sending me pics of my quilts hanging in the Changing Threads exhibition currently on at @the_refineryartspace in Nelson. I love them hanging on the textured concrete wall!
Exhibition runs until 25 March.
