Look what I saw at the show on Friday! No wonder it took out top prize, amazing work, each square is less than 2". Everything is hand stitched, and so beautifully done too.
It describes the story of a family, from the time they arrived in Australia to now and each square represents a special memory or event.
The knitting was very dull, nothing special there at all so I was very disappointed. Most of it was what I call "granny knits" - just basic things done in gawdy coloured acrylics. Not my style at all. And the quilting wasn't that big, but there were a few nice things. I know one of the EB quilters is working on one of these quilts so I took the pic just for her:
Now onto my crafts, here's why I avoid fair aisle... except this little top is so cute that I can look past the tangled mess of working more than 10 yarns at once. I'm nearly finished the motiff so I can cut them all off, yay! I managed to untangle all the threads last night so can now finish it off unhindered.
And a couple of sneak peaks from the EB bag swap - I completed the bag today, just trying to think of some extras to send and it will be on it's way.
How's that for a teaser... the big reveal will happen when the recipient gets the parcel.
