WI Competition

 Last week was our WI and we had a competition, which we have every month, you dont have to join in but points are awarded for a win or second place and points for just joining in, we shall see a winner at the end of the year!! but this month the theme was "something from the garden"
this is my entry, the rose heads are real and the leaves are real, they have been UTEE'd, thats coated in an ultra thick embossing enamel, i distressed the frame by painting it dark red, then painting it cream and sanding it back to reveal the red a little, this picture was taken before i decided to add a string of pearls round the frame.
WELL....... i got second place ..........YAY

A few things to show......

Well i have lots to show you,
 firstly the little quilt i received from Judy who was my partner for Marches exchange on the doll quilters exchange.......isnt it just gorgeous, the theme was keeping it it, 
thank you Judy.

 next a scrap page...he always says i never scrap anything of him, which to be fair is true, i dont often get pics of him without face pulling or just the mardy look lol, but this one had to be done, just a little bit of colour...its hard doing male pages i find, i am a very faffy floral scrapper but i am liking this

the next lot are all workshops that will be appearing soon.....
using lots of the new fabrics i have been buying recently
the "stitch in time" tidy wallhanging (lots of pockets)
 the posh bunting with pompoms
 the A4 project binder and pencil case, we are using ours for our sewing patterns but change the motif and it can be for anything.
 the lap quilt for the Quilt weeknd at the end of the month
love doing my quilts with the freehand quilting, there is another version to come when i have quilted it!!
