|This is my mother's parents. I met my Grampa many times, but my Grandmother died tragically when my mum was about 11 years old.|
I've also been working on other projects to do with my Crazy Quilt class running at the local quilt store. I made this small drawstring bag as an end product sample from two small blocks.
|The pink side, with pretty simple stitches. The basic block construction from the middle out.|
|Under the Sea side which is a bit more challenging and is put together as a scenic block.|
I've had the class for over a year now. It runs in 4-month sessions, and I have a couple of students who are now on their 5th session.
I've been making a fabric book of samples of the things I teach and as more inspiration. The "pages" are 12' X 7" and fold in half. I wanted to be able to add stitching to the pages at any time, but wanted to hide the back also.
|Some fool's gold work|
|Folded and gathered flowers and different kinds of leaves|
|This page is mostly simple silk ribbon|
|One of the stitch pages - feather and cretan|
|Silk ribbon flowers.|
I've added metal eyelet holes. I'll use two rings to hold everything together. I have 12 pages made so far and I'm finding it really useful. I'm also working on an instruction book to go along with each fabric page.
