Only 2 months behind now!!
A COCKROACH CHANGED MY LIFE”
IDEA / INSPIRATION:
We were visiting my husband’s sister at the Gold Coast in March when she came out with this random statement.
We were commenting at the dinner table on how lucky they were to get their beautiful home on the Gold Coast and buying at the right time.
Well, she said “A cockroach changed my life”!!
She and her partner were living on a yacht and she was sick of the confined space and the whole atmosphere of marina life.
One morning she made her morning coffee and she was just about to take a sip when she saw the cockroach floating on top.
This was the final straw, and she went that day and began to look for a rental home unit. She found a small one bedroom unit and rented for a while until a unit in a nearby block came up for sale. She bought that, sold it for treble and the rest is history.
Sometimes we don’t know what or who is going to change the course of our life. It was amazing how one small cockroach changed the path of Catherine’s life.
Fusing, machine appliqué, fabric painting, embroidery.
For impact, I used the juxtaposition of pretty and delicate with creepy crawly ugly.
