Martina's crazy - trinket box

Martina has created the most gorgeous embroidery on her trinket boxes.

I think she is giving this to a friend for her birthday.

Lucky friend!

The colour palette is so different from the first crazy that Martina worked on.

Then there is this one - so beautiful. The seam treatment on the top right is from my second book - but it looks so different.

The limited colour palette is just gorgeous.

As are her seam treatments.

So many of different textures.

Close up!

Thanks so much for allowing me to share your work, Martina.

Busy, busy, busy

I have been a tad busy of late - but its all good stuff really.
I was invited by the Maleny Magic Patchwork shop to host a little exhibition of crazy quilting and embroidery to celebrate their 2nd birthday.

Thanks to Heather, Judith and Cilla it all looked great.
A big thanks to Judith too, who served tea and coffee all day!

Elaine's peacock crazy always causes a stir.

Jan from the "Fat Quarters" group had a novel way of displaying her little blocks that she did in a workshop with me a few years ago.

My quilt and books and Heather's gorgeous tea cosy a WIP.

Crazy quilting everywhere.

All different and unique.

Heather's work - oh, my gosh, the photos I took are soooo bad! I think I was too busy chatting...

Once that was done, I had time to baste this clamshell quilt which I am making for my mother in South Africa.

I basically have TWO weeks to hand quilt it ...................

And with all the teaching that I am doing at the moment its going to be tough going.
Wish me luck!
