A day of TWELVES

Today we record our day as 12/12/12 a Numerical Coincidence. As a calendar year doesn't have 13 months it will be nine hundred and eighty nine years before we scribe the day, month and year with the same numerals 01/01/01 (1st January 3001). The number twelve has captivated and influenced us throughout history and it seemed like the perfect day to reflect on the year and list twelve memorable moments that occurred throughout the year.  Simple enough task right? Well summing up a busy and hectic year into just twelve moments is an achievement in its’ self. 
Anyway here we go in no particular order twelve memorable moments throughout 2012:

Celebrated turning 40
First Solo Exhibition – Sunday Drives
Enjoyed having more time in the studio
Enjoyed doing more baking and preserving
Loved sketching my way round Brisbane with Urban Art Binge
Totally enjoyed a very inspiring master class with Ruth Hadlow
Featured in Textile Magazine - first magazine feature (3 pages)
So much fun decorating a tree as part of Jumpers n Jazz festival
Enjoyed doing more Sunday Drives - all in the name of research of course
Delighted and honoured to have art works that are now part of private collections
Very exciting to have artwork accepted into State of the Art Quilt, Stanthorpe Arts Festival, Beneath The Southern Sky and Infused 2: all things Tea
And of course taking time to enjoy and contemplate the day with family and friends


  1. An auspicious day, and an auspicious year for you Mel!!
    Your Banksia Mania hangs on a wall that I see every day as I stand at the sink in the kitchen, or walk through to the dining room. Just love it!!
