Well, it now feels as though it was ages ago that I was in South Africa with you and Dad........but moving on.....................
It was Jane's turn to do her trunk show at the Buderim group. I think she was a bit nervous - she had no need to be - her work impressed everybody. In fact, I was a tad worried about one of the ladies - she loved her embroidery so much I thought she was going to have a heart attack!!!
So lets start - this is Jane's first quilt - most people start with a sampler.
This quilt has faded a lot - but I always think that when a quilt is faded and worn - it means that it has been used and loved.............. the way they are meant to be.
Jane is a bit of a bag lady - she went through a stage of making bags - lots of them - you know what those OCD people are like ?????
Jane and I both made a bag like this - I was a bit annoyed because hers is way nicer that mine - not happy Jan(e)!!!
What was so lovely about Jane's trunk show is that she did not only have quilting. Jane's first love (sorry Wayne) is embroidery!!!
Her work is just exquisite and her colours ........ stunning!
The work in this one - hours and hours......
Jane and I are doing the half inch hexagon quilt together - can you believe that this is how much I got covered for her during my trip to South Africa?? (Just in case you are wondering - Jane wrote that little note, not me)
