It’s been a while since I purchased a lino cut print from┬álast year’s craft show. At last I’ve finished embroidering the bush scene and added appliqued birds on the border.

Years ago Stan salvaged pieces of sound rimu from borer ridden chapel pews that were destined for the bonfire. Since his younger sister was having a special birthday those stored pieces became a pair of trays. The bases are rimu plywood, also salvaged from old screens and Stan thinks the darker red sides might be totara because of the colour. Coated with Danish oil the wood looks beautiful.

Back in July I made three Christmas quilts for a friend out of fabric she had collected. Since then they’ve had an addition to the family and the scraps came back to me to try and put another quilt together.
