    Hope you enjoy these. I had to show you the beautiful fans our ladies are making. basically 5 ladies get together on this, the person whose fan it is picks the colours and the subject she would like the fan to represent. The fans are double sided as well. I think they have turned out fantastic. I am being told they will be doing another soon as I want to try this out.
    the other work is by Jan the stained glass work and the quilt.

    Enjoy

    Well I have to say we are very lucky here in Spain having this Group of special ladies. We hold our 2nd Quilting show in October this year so watch out for my photographs of that and see what we all get up to.

    You know, nothing PI***S me off than the attitude that "we all look alike"!!! The "Chinese" front that you did is actually Japanese and NOT Chinese. Kimonos and Geisha hairstyles are Japanese and NOT Chinese. If you are going to go on a public forum and post such things naming races, PLEASE do not post it as if "we all look alike" so you lump us into ONE category. We are CATAGORICALLY and RACIALLY and CULTURALLY diabolically different!!!

    GREATLY offended here ...
