    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!

    Beautiful!
    The quilted stuffed animals brought back memories...MIL made the dog for my oldest when he was a baby.

    Thanks for posting those. What a variety of styles, and all so well done! The umbrella one may be my favorite, but so many of the others really impressed me, like the appliqued flower pillows and the elegant pose of the woman in the gown.
