Profile of a blogger!!



This blogger is all 'blogged up' trying to get onto the "Spot" again, but here I am again, finally [thanks to Sue#2 again] to share the latest news and views of the BFG 'group'.

A small number of our group, joined by several one-day-stayers, enjoyed a great 3 day camp down South in October. Brenda came all the way from Freo to be with her old felting friends.

The annual Busselton Art Award chose 52 entries out of the 182 to exhibit their work at the Art Geo Gallery in Busselton. The writer of this blog was delighted to one of the lucky few to be chosen, having my "Snow Gum Boardwalk - Mount Kosciuszko" embroidery on show for the month of October. What an exciting opening with a great variety of media, styles and work.
The exhibition comes down tomorrow.

Congratulations to our Group Leader Colleen Castledine [& non member friend Susan Marchant] who received an award for their striking outfit in the Dardanup Bull and Barrel Festival Wearable Ag Art competition.
