Vote for Danielle!

NP's family knows an amazing girl called Danielle Weymark who I've been lucky enough to meet a few years ago. She's a passionate equestrian. Passion that just makes you tingle. I'm not a horse lover but watching her videos make me wonder if I'm missing out on something amazing!

I was really excited to hear that a video about her horse-riding has been entered into a competition called "Focus on Ability". If she receives enough votes she will win prize money that will hopefully help her get to the Paralympic Games.

Go to the Focus on Ability website to see "If Your Heart Wears Thin" and cast a vote for her. You can also see some great footage of her riding here and read her story at the Violet Foundation site here.

Voting closes Midnight 30th July AEST!

Paper Flowers Around the World...

One of my favourite illustrators, Anna Emilia, has a lovely example of how to use tissue-paper flowers as gift-decorations...

Cecilia Heffer: Lace Narratives

Hello Friends,

You may have noticed this blog has been a little on the thin side in terms of any substantial writing... sure, a few music suggestions here, some hipstamatic shots there... but I think we can all agree this makes not for a particularly interesting read!

(Please tell me otherwise... perhaps you'd rather me short and sweet?)

Tonight despite an avalanche of University marking that is cascading from my inbox, I feel it is deeply important that anyone in Sydney over the next 3 weeks make a concerted effort to get to this exhibition.

I'm assuming that you who read Feeling Fuzzy? are quite keen on art, textiles, craft and the importance of beautiful things in life, yes?

I think you will appreciate at least 20 minutes gazing at the incredible textiles of Cecilia Heffer hanging in the beautiful Damien Minton Gallery in Redfern.

Exhibition Details:
Wed 28 July to Sat 14 August 2010
61-63 Great Buckingham St Redfern
02 9699 7551
Opening Hours: Wed-Sat 11am-6pm

PS. Number 46 is coming home with me!

Music: Nicola Watson

I like this girl's new album "Clear is the Coast". She is from Melbourne and I hope she comes to visit Sydney soon. One of her songs was playing on the radio on the way home from Yumi's Exhibition... it was a perfect way to end the night.

Yumi 's Magical Opening Night!

Congratulations lovely Yumi on such an amazing Opening Night! I was lucky to arrive at the gallery a little before most... seeing such magical body of work set to twinkling music by our friend Jerome gave me the shiniest & happiest feeling.

Blair has created a beautiful video (above) of the night... I think he's captured the floating essence of Yumi and her work.

Sweetness catered the event, with squishy and very special marshmallows, little lemon tarts and macaroons on 3 tired plates.

Thank you Yumi and Taka for giving us this beautiful exhibition!
