I have finally finished the paper quilt for the true colours challenge. I am really pleaed with how it turned out. I have bound it with cotton painted with acrylic in the same way I did with the actual quilt. It's finished size is 11" square (ish!!). This was a very satisfying piece of work, in no small part because of the lessons learned in it's making. Thanks to all of you who gave me advice and help with this work.
I have also 2 other things in the pipeline, my calendar girls febuary post card which is for Val, and my piece for January's TIF challenge. I have nearly done this, it has been combined with Emmy's FAF page for January as she wanted a mandala. I decided to make my mandala in the style of the people I admire, and I am about 3/4's there. I hope to finish it tomorrow or monday.

What are old enough to remember? and.......
Now being the baby of the bunch in many cases here, I feel ashamed to say what I remember. I unusually don't have many early memories. My strongest was my deep love for Wonderwoman, man I wanted to be her! Torville and Dean at the olympics, the Bolero! and hence why i am taking Ellie may to see Kieran Bracken in Cardiff on wednesday to see the holiday on ice. Later it was pop groups like take that and Bros and Kylie and Jason (still love Jason!!! Yey for Echo Beach!). Now this all seems a bit too superficial, but and the last bit will give you a laugh. This was taken on Charles ad Di's wedding day, I remember as the outfit was made for the street party. Note the attention to detail, gold rope and cuffs, but what was my mum thinking with the socks! Why no red boots!!!!! I think I might make a wonderwoman inspired something. The other in the pic is my sis Vicky, just to shame her!You all laughing now!!!!!!
