While reading one of the quilting blogs recently, I was reminded that I once ventured into the realm of needle turned applique. It came about when a friend was unable to complete a workshop and asked if I would sit in for the remaining lessons. So with the permission of the teacher I came to learn something quite new to me.

After that I became quite ambitious and thought I would continue, but no quilt eventuated for my bed just a lot of squares that turned into cushions. These are what I have left ...the rest have been gifted.
There was a time when I thought I would dip my toes into patchwork, and what followed was a frenzy of stitching which resulted in the following efforts.

Not much progress eventuated into quilting after that, because it was about the time that I discovered art so my mad frenzies were then directed into paint and canvas, although in the end I always return to the more calming love of embroidery.
