The Crafty Princess and Aunty Nene and The Quilting Queen and I are going to this years show on Friday - so expect a vast number of pictures of our purchases!!!!
Other Works in Progress are as follows (in no particular order!)
This embroidery was dredged out of a Spotlight bag (Spotlight is our big craft department store for non Australian readers) bag. The bag was so old it was starting the fall apart - not a bad effort for a modern plastic shopping bag! So I added it to the list of things to do and I actually embroidered the hearts. It is at least 15 years old and does not look too old fashioned (everything comes back if you keep them long enough). But I can imagine it finished and in a lovely wooden frame.....sometime in the future!
Still going with Golden Wood...get used to this dear readers you will see it for some time. But I have got to the right hand side edge....yet another black tree trunk with an elfen lady lurching behind it. Looking at the picture it gives the impression that I have made some dire error and the right hand end finished below the left hand end. I looked at this when I took it out of the Qsnaps and nearly died of fright (I HATE unpicking)....but followed the bottom row across and they DO meet up.....it just doesn't look like they do....heart went back to normal rhythm.
And the last one is this little sampler from Birds of a Feather, and it is going to say "The Bee makes honey from the Bitterest Flower". The pattern actually says the bee sucks honey from the bitterest flower....which apart from being biologically incorrect sounded ugly so I am going to change it. I love samplers, they are quick and charming.
