Gifts from Jean

Here is a pic of my lovely Xmas pressies from my UK penfriend, Jean.
A Purpleheart wooden "Bee Hive" wax pot made by Graham Hudson, A "Thumper" bobbin made by Jean Turner and a pillow tidy made by Brian Goodwin, the pin is "stabbed" into the pillow and the tools are stored in it's other "open" end :-D
I have been dillegently stitching away on my Danish cross stitch sampler again today ... still a few hours more work to do but the end is in sight yay! I am trying to clear some of the WIP's which seem to be breeding in the studio! Although this one is only 3 years and 8 months old haha!

Trying to change the time but it won't do it!

Russian Mat

Photo of my BIG Russian mat taken a couple of weeks ago as I am now "under way" with the outer circle!! :-D
Thecentre in Bridget Cook's original mat was lots of circles ... would have "done my head in!!" so I designed an alternative one (Bridget did get to see my design change at the end of last year when I did a Russian workshop with her).

Crazy patch block made for a quilt being put together by a friend's group in America - it had to have a hand made lace heart in the centre. I also embellished it with hand made tatting, embroidery, buttons and charms! also the materials have an Australiana theme.
