Yesterday was Guild day and the unveiling of the Upcycled Archibald quilts. We were all given a bag with lace, applique pieces buttons and braid and were encouraged to use everything in our portrait. Here are a few, sadly I didn't get photos of them all
Tracee of Farmgatecreations made the beautiful quilt third from the left, it has so much detail in it.
You can see from the page attached to the quilt, the pieces Tracee started with.

It was such a great challenge and we had 20 entries, the best for ages. It was also wonderful to see all the different interpretations of a portrait and how people used the bits and pieces they had.
Here is Donna's entry “A Pawtrait of Queen Elizacat I. Donna was winner and viewers choice for this challenge. This is based on her cat Sherman the Birman. The face and paws are beautiful needle felted pieces and the dress sari fabric. It is just stunning.
the cats eyes look at you no matter where you stand.
Here is my finished Masked Lady.
The supervisor and I had a walk along the beach this morning, today I got a talking to because another mans dog was off lead???? Not sure how it was my problem or why I was responsible!!
It is a beautiful day, I zoomed in on a ship coming into the Bay
lots of boats heading out fishing today.
I had better get moving, the washing needs to be hung out and I have backings to sew together and iron and batting to cut!! But it is a sunny day and my book is calling.....
Have a wonderful day.
