Postcards for Granddies

 Frozen for Benni
Woof for Shiloh.  Missing them - everyone has been busy with life and I haven't travelled up the mountain to Mt Nebo for a couple of weeks.  Made the postcards yesterday & they'll be on their way tomorrow.

Journal Covers

Made for sisters, Heather & Annabel - noticed them drawing in church & thought they'd like a sketch book each to practise.  Pretty sure they liked them.

Workshop last week

 I attended a workshop with Sue Duffy 
She won Best of Show in Queensland a couple of years ago. Does amazing work.
 Used water colour pencils and thread sketching - thought this chick had a dinosaur leg.
 Placed on the background with the lily pads, the chick doesn't really look out of place.  Have yet to finish the applique.  The hen & chick have been trapuntoed (is there such a word??).
 Sue's piece - we could choose this one or another piece - similar theme.
 Detail of Sue's piece - can you see the reflections in the water?
Sue's piece - the bird is called a Jacana (for those who need to know) and it lives on lakes around Brisbane (& probably other places too) - big feet to 'walk' on the lily pads, also known as the Jesus bird!  It was a great workshop - now I have to finish it...……………..
