A quick post....................

 After all the excitement of the birth of my first grandchild, I am now packing to travel to Charleville to teach for a few days, I thought I would quickly post some photos of Deb's work.

Please enjoy her interesting and vibrant work.

Thanks for sharing your work, Debs. See you soon.

Something special - crazy hexagons

A few months ago I was contacted by Margaret from Canberra telling me that she was doing some crazy hexagons. She very kindly told me that she was using the hexagon patterns and finishing technique from my book "Foolproof Crazy Quilting".
As my son and DIL live in Canberra, I got to meet Margret and see some of her outstanding embroidery - not just crazy quilting.
Recently, the Canberra Embroiderers guild had a retrospective of her work - 70 years of embroidery. Oh my gosh, how I would love to have seen all her work in the flesh. Sadly, I could not.

Thankfully, she sent me some photos and was more than happy for me to share her work.

I just need to make it very clear, that I had nothing to do with Margaret's embroidery or embellishing of  her hexagons. All of the creativity showcased are hers , Margaret simply used the patterns and the finishing technique from my book.

Please enjoy her magnificent work.

Many thanks, Margaret, for allowing me to share your outstanding work.
Hopefully, I get to see you next time I am in Canberra vising my very new grandson.

Deb B's embroidered pincushion

Apologies for the "not great" photos BUT you can see still the beautiful work Deb did on her pincushion.

I while back I suggested that I teach some Brazilian embroidery

Deb was one of my "students" who took up the challenge.

On black linen, the embroidery really stands proud.

Crochet flower is the crowing glory!

Such beautiful work, Deb.

Till next time.

Elenore's elegant crazy

As I said in the previous post, I am taking advantage of sharing some of my students work as I have it on hand after my trunk shows.

Here is Elenore's very beautiful work.
She came to my classes as a very proficient embroiderer, as is evident in her work.

Its been a while

It's been awhile between posts - I have been busy; making "stuff" for my first grandchild due in a couple of weeks, teaching (a lot) and a few trunk shows to do.

I always love to show my students work at my trunk shows- so I took the opportunity to take a few photos to share with you.
You may have seem some of this work before.........................

This beautiful crazy belongs to Elaine.


A big thank you to Elaine for allowing me to share her stunning work.
