Today I am off to the Craft and Quilt Fair with Annie so I thought I had better post some more work in progress. (That way I can justify a little reward at the fair)
This is the other block I have completed.
It is made of chain stitch and straight stitch and some plastic beads which look better from a slight distance than close up like this but plastic beads keep a quilt lighter.
This next detail of the same block stated off with a row of threaded chain stitch
As usual you can click on the images to go to larger versions and click on the magnify glass icon to see closer details again.
Annie I plan to have a good day as the Canberra Quilters also have their annual exhibition at the same venue. They have details on their blog. Also we plan to meet up with Doreen of Creative Meanderings around lunch time. So I am off to find my comfy shoes, dig out a shopping bag and perhaps evenput on some make up for a girls day out.
