My latest creations.....






I am in the middle of making a Turning Twenty Quilt with these fabrics...they are made in Japan and are so beautiful to touch...I had some fabric left over, as I have completed the quilt top. I decided to make a couple of things with the leftover fabric. Here I have used a handpainted ceramic button and Ive done a silk embroidered design on to the fabric. I designed this as I embroidered. I have done in the ditch quilting and I am now going to made it into a cushion to go with my new quilt.


The other photo is a wire heart I have made from the scraps and I have used a vintage crocheted lace around the outside...I am very pleased with the outcome of both of these. Im now going to make a doll to hang on the door handle of my wardrobe.
