A beautiful exhibition

My favourite plant nursery is only about 15 minutes from my home.  
It's called Bulleen Art and Garden and is always full of beautiful plants, garden art and giftware.  It's quirky and fun.
It also has a small gallery as part of the business.  I called in today for a couple of punnets of seedlings only to discover the current gallery exhibition features textiles.
20th March to 22nd April

Here's what the artists wrote 
Introducing The Twisted Threads: We are a group of textile artists called Twisted Threads and we met at the Burwood Campus of Deakin Uni in 1992 doing Art and Design Course – we graduated in 1994 and have continued to meet monthly ever since to exchange ideas, info and workshop. We are a diverse group with a common interest – our love of textiles. our varied interests range from quilts, bags, fabric bowls, cloth dolls, to screen prints and painting. For more info and pics head to http://gallery.baag.com.au/?p=1727

It finishes on April 22nd.
