I took more photos on my second visit so I am sharing them here.
Our new Tablecloth had it’s first outing this time.
Next we have the young embroiderers’ display. Very mixed ages, haven’t they done well?
I apologise for the reflections of the church windows in some of the exhibits, rather difficult to avoid them!
I loved the elegant boots and the Mary Poppins especially in the first collage. The beading was part of a workshop we had with Eliza MacClelland. In the second collage we have free machine embroidery Reflections and Frosty Morning.
I enjoyed this rather splendid piece embellished with gold work too.
Several different techniques in the first image but the tiger image in the second is a lovely piece of mixed machine and hand embroidery .
Finally some dolls. Miss Buttercup on her special chair and Bobbie, a beautiful old porcelain doll in his newly knitted clothes. He was quite tiny… no more than 6″ high I think.
Next a couple of tarts for you! Just look at HER with her nose in the air! 🙂
All in all a very successful exhibition showing the wide variety of talent we have in the Branch.
Ha! A very good friend of mine (no longer with us) once said that ‘we are all tarts at heart’. She was alluding to the gold and glitter that was fashionable at the time. I hope ‘yours’ were suitably gilded 😉
Oh yes! They had lots of glittery stuff!
