As I can't show my current work at the moment I thought I'd show you some of Bethany's, (one of my GDs) instead. These pieces are bout 2-3 years old and I'm ashamed to say have been in my possession for about a year and a half waiting for me to get around to photograph them, bad Nanny!
Anyway the quilt was Bethany's first attempt at FME, her next quilt won her 3rd place in the 12'-16's at the FOQ 2006.
The Winny the Poo cushion followed on from quilt number one, I think! And the little bag was made for a long forgotten party, how time fly's!
And this is her latest project, view B, in a gorgeous midnight blue taffeta, it's for our DS's and his DF's wedding in August.
We had a great evening's catch up yesterday putting the finishing touches to the dress. We hadn't been able to get together for a while, due to our busy lives and coursework, so there was lots to talk about while we stitched, not least the Japanese pop scene of which I am now an expert ( not LOL). I couldn't decide if our meet made me feel 19 again or 79!!! I think the latter, the former was just plain wishful thinking.
And just a PS to make you jealous. My OH took a day off work today to enjoy the sunshine and we went to one of our favourite places the Arundel wetland centre and I spent a very happy couple of hours working in my sketch book in this lovely living willow arbour.
I just couldn't resist taking time off from the project to have a go at sketching in this beautiful hidden garden, especially as it has the most wonderful inviting seat.
