    Visited this morning a small exhibition in our nearest town. The work is done by the local small group. No machine work at all - it is all hand done, some of it still WIP.
    The quilts are lovely, and the applique work quite outstanding on some of the pieces.
    Also a couple of the ladies do fine lacework - I got a few pix but my card was full so missed alot of that. It is exquisite, there are beautiful framed pictures entirely lacework.
    Hope you enjoy seeing them.

    my favourite!
