Embroidered Leaves Wall Hanging Finished

Jeanette put the last finishing touches to her
'Embroidered Leaves Wall Hanging', with the
soldering iron and WOW!

It is now finished and she left it at
The Gallery for Haydn to frame it ready
to hang in The Gallery Art Space.
Well done! Jeanette for such
beautiful work.

Beryl's Embellishment

Beryl had her first session @ The Gallery and
she made some embellished felt. This is a really
good piece and she is going to make a needlecase
out of it and some cards.
Beryl had also brought with her some of her
fabric stash and we had a look through and gave her some
She decided she would like to make a quilt for
her new Grandson.

Sylvia making a Patchwork Tablecloth

Sylvia was inspired by the Grand Mother's Fan Patchwork and
Lace Tablecloth I had brought in to show her for inspiration.
She wanted to know what she could do with all her
handmade lace and linens she had inherited from her
Dereham's Lace Making Group meets on a Monday,
where Sylvia is a member.
So as you can see, she has set to work
and is making her own version of the cloth.
Well done Sylvia for doing so much

website on my Vintage page

Pats Samplers

Pat has been sorting out the boxes that came down from the loft
and she found two Samplers she made when she was about
the age of ten. They were to celebrate the Coronation.
They were lovely to see and share.
Thank you Pat.
Classes are lovely for this, 'The Show and Tell',
element. It always enriches all who shares.

Drum Carder

At the Weeting Quilters Meeting Diane who is also a
spinner and weaver brought in a car load of fleece,
some washed and some ready to prepare and
has let me borrow her spare drum carder.
This will make such a difference from hand carding.
I will have to get Stewart carding as he did such a good
job at carding at the Alpaca Farm.
