This wreath was a real joy ad pleasure to make. It was designed by Mandy Shaw and is part of Dandelion Designs which I purchased a part each month! I am really pleased with it!
This is the finished Hardanger picture - again something else I mastered during the 97 Group classes. It was worked on 22 threads per inch Oslo fabric using DMC perle 5 whitethread and DMC perle 8 varigated thread. There was one or two stressful moments whilst I was working certain areas, particularly when cutting the Kloster blocks, but once finished I did feel a great sense of achievment.
This is my insect house - all the insects are hand embroidererd and the project has taken a long time, but it is one I have enjoyed doing!
This cushion is a result of learning applique with the 97 Group on the Saturday mornings before the actual Guild meeting.
A picture in Blackwork


Done on a day school with Melissa Cheeseman .We learnt various patterns which formed this pretty landscape picture.

A box


Also done on a day school. I had organza layered on mine with beading on top to make up the veins on the leaves. It was the first day school I attended at NKEG and the first time I had used my sewing machine in years!

Valerie's cats!


This is a picture of my two cats done in silk shading & stump work with much help from Melissa Cheeseman!

A cushion as the result of the Jennie Rayment Day school


This is my interpretation of the Jenny Rayment day school which I made in to a cushion and I am very pleased with the end result.

One view of myquilt


My quilt on my bed!


After seeing various other member quilts and wall hangings I decided to have a go and attended the local adult education class taught by Jean Ball. This is still a work in progress as I am currently hand quilting it. This quilt is made in 12 blocks and all hand pieced, the sashing & borders are machine stitched. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and it keeps you warm in winter while hand quilting!

  My sampler  


I started this Sampler in about 2000 at a day school with Jane Greenoff and it was the first time I had ever used linen material. I must admit I struggled with all the new stitches and hardangar and it got put away in a drawer for several years until 2007 when I decided to finish it off. I am pleased I went back to it as I hate to be beaten anything.
