More pictures from the Exhibition as promised

It has taken awhile to pass these pictures to the computer, seems they have been sat snuggly on the camera, and I had forgotten all about them..    Oh well !! that's life.


Beautiful Stumpwork this picture is about  6 x 8 inches
it is actually a lot smaller than it looks in the photo


This black work panel was stitched by Ruth who until just a few months ago had only ever attempted cross stitch

A flower on a wooden bowl is stitched in detatched needle lace this was about 4 inches across



This trophy was made by the Woodturners and Carvers  Club of Rotorua for us.
 the scissors almost work and the thimble is usable  also is the cotton reels.


This is the lid of the box that was made to hold the trophy.


Flora and Fauna
Toadstools and mice  all hand stitched using wools and all kinds of mediums


A smocked collar made for an exhibition of extensions ( sewing out of the square)
 it was not made to be worn
