I'm working away in the background making the portraits for my Mum's memorial quilt and here are the latest few I've completed.
This handsome young man is my nephew Sebastian, son of my younger sister Juliet.
The second portrait of Stephanie my middle granddaughter is much prettier from the first one I made.
Here is Juliet, hand stitched on linen to co-ordinate with the other pictures of the same generation like Christopher and the others I want to do of Rosi and myself.
Sarah's machine stitched portraits have been turned into gifts for her birthday, this one is now on the cover of an A4 sketchbook I've made for her.
I machine embroidered a message on the inside of her card and decorated it with appliquéd butterflies, then made a drawstring bag with the same fabric to use as wrapping for the card and sketchbook.
The last machine stitched portrait is now on the front of Sarah's card which I stiffened with some pelmet interlining which is stiff enough to keep the card standing.
I hope you've enjoyed this look at my latest work and I'll be back soon with some more in a few weeks after my autumn visit to see the family in England.
