MK GEMs show

Saturday saw Penny and I travelling to Woburn Sands in the most torrential rain.
The MK GEMS [Milton Keynes Group of Embroidery Machine Sewers] were holding their bi-annual exhibition.
What a wonderful show and so well organised, we were greeted at the door and told about the different exhibits. The members of the group had be challenged to decorate an apron, their imaginations had run wild. The display of quilts and clothes were wonderful plus there were three different embroidery machines set up working on different projects, felt, leather and wash away.
There is a story running around the outside of this tepee, what a masterpiece any child would love.

Attic Window quilt with dramatic ME

One of my favourite quilts, completely ME'd, even the sashing.

What a wonderful way to capture your memories.

Love this Roman blind

The clothes and cushions display 

The 3D poppies on this cushion a reminder of Remembrance Day

Less than 7 weeks to the Yo Ho Ho Day

Everything on the tree was for sale for 50p

This 3D swan beautifully framed really caught my eye

Daffodils with tiny lights, what a great idea

The group had had a workshop and there were many of these 3D flowers, really pretty

Back and front of this jacket were incredible

Another up & down week

I cannot believe the bad luck we are having at the moment, it seems to go on and on... First the good news: I attended a sewing day at Bed...
