This is named "Sweet Agnes". She was one of my favorite aunts. She lived to the age of 102 and was a delight until her death. I knitted her sweater and beaded her necklace. I also, used fabric paint on her hair.
I've been having so much fun making some different cards. It is so much fun to see what colors will make the design stand out. Each card takes about 2 hours to make. It takes much longer to draw up the design and make the place where the holes will go. I don't think I will make any more of the ones with the crystal beads. It would be too expensive to make them to sell.
This was my first experience doing a "round robin". It was so much fun. It started with my center square, the purple with the flowers appliqued. The next person did the next round and so on until all the ladies in the group did a round. I was amazed when I got it back as I had not seen it after I gave my starting square. Just thought you would like to see it.
This is a copy of a photograph that our son, Scott, had on his web-site. I just loved it and asked him if I could try to make a quilted wall hanging of it. I love the way it turned out. It is made of cotton fabric, netting, fabric paint and then quilted. Some of the trees are made with tiny pieces of fabric which I call snippets. It was so much fun to make it and to see it completed.
With this purse, I fussycut the design from one piece of fabric and appliqued it onto the rust suedecloth. This one was fun to make, but then all of them are fun to make. I never get tired of drawing designs and then sitting at the sewing machine and putting them all together.
