Tuesday crazy

The last Tuesday of the month is a big crazy day for us - most of the girls stay for the whole day. This basket made from newspaper was bought on my last trip to South Africa. Talk about recycling!!

 
Rosemary has many great ideas - this is a bootie which she has overlayed with silk organza - her whole crazy quilt is made up of fabrics saved throughout her life - wedding dresses, groom's vests, baby clothes etc - quite incredible....


Some of Rosemary's embroidery....................


Silk ribbon buds....................


Chain stitch........................

 
Interesting bits and bobs make Rosemary's work so interesting...............


Silk ribbon roses..........................

 
Bettye made this intricate beaded bracelet.


We spent the day creating button flowers on Deb's crazy...................
Enjoy your cruise, Debs!!!


Cheryl was one happy camper - her bag is nearly done!!!  WOOOOHOOO


It was so good to see Marie back - with her crazy - always fascinating to see her embellishments - LOVE IT.

It's good to be back.....

I survived those awful goodbye's at the airport and it feels good to be home. I got straight back into teaching at the Patchwork Angel...............
The stitch dictionary students worked on chevron stitch today- so we did the basics and the next time we meet the seam treatments will be embellished and looking gorgeous................?????
Don't forget to bead these buttons, Wendy!!

Lovely to see Judy again - what a busy camper she is.............


Some more of Judy's chevron stitch............
