There is so much i want to say about my home town. but all i can really put into words is how much i love it. it is entirely unique in every way, from its historic background, to its multiculturalism, to its fresh and ever changing arts and music scene. Even though i have only been living here for six years myself, i would call it my home town.

i have travelled to many countries in the world, even living a year in china. and all i ever wanted when i was away was to return home. i go to university here now, and get involved with the cultural aspect of Bendigo a lot.
originally i made this collage as a sort of preliminary map for a small art quilt, and even collected the fabric for it. however, i had never used a sewing machine before and when i started making it, i actually broke the machine. (from my own misuse of it.) so here is my tribute to my wonderful town, in collage form. one day to be a quilt!

bendigo has an old gothic cathedral, trams, a chinese precinct and is known for the gold rush. i forgot to include its title as the city in the forest, because it is still surrounded by natural Australian 'bush'! also the chinese says 'wo ai' (i love) Bendigo!

i really enjoyed making this collage, and hopefully one day in the future can post up a pic of my finished quilt Grin

This is beautiful!

I'm from Sydney but I love Bendigo!

The colours and shapes are really gorgeous, good work!


I have decided that the hokey pokey is what it's all about.
