Samphire Quilters Exhibition 2013

Samphire Quilters Exhibition is held in St Nicholas's Church in
Kings Lynn, every year and is always spectacular.
The amount of quilts and the standard is breathtaking and 
the special areas of interest. This year, 'Children's Corner'.
I think we all fell in love with Humpty Dumpty.
There is the Chairman's Challenge, Daphne and her daughter
with their amazing art work and embroidery. 
Sian's Fabric and The Members Sales Table.
There are several raffles and Jo was buying a ticket 
for The Osteoporosis Quilt, a worthy cause.

Pink Stripped and Stitched Background Fabric

As you may know I like to encourage recycling and trying new techniques.
Sue wanted to try one of the stripped pieced background techniques.
She had brought some of her own scraps and then
 delved into the big scrap jar I have in the studio.
Sue also wanted to try one of the studio 607 Janome sewing machines
to see whether she would like to buy one.
She was going to put it through its paces by trying as many of
the embroidery stitches as she could.
As you can see above it looks fantastic and it is
going to be made into a book cover.
Well done Sue.
I think I see a new machine on the horizon!

Bags and an Owl

Bags are always popular and so are Owls at the moment.
This Owl was made by Sylvia 
and came as a kit on the front of a Magazine.
