What a great wall hanging! I like the fabrics used especially as they were scraps. I am glad you enjoyed doing this, it is good to learn new tricks. Recognised the Humber Bridge from your interpretation. I really liked doing mine too. Like you, I am looking forward to the next challenge. Home we have more of these Famous Places!
The new Library of Birmingham replaced the Central Library and was opened in September 2013. Situated on the west side of the city centre at Centenary Square, beside the Birmingham Rep and Baskerville House.
The building is fascinating. We hated it when it appeared with its ‘old bicycle wheels’ struck on the outside but when it is lit up in the evenings it is stunning. The inside, and the roof terraces, are clean and inviting with lots of comfy seating places to read your books or just contemplate the world or view the exhibitions. Rumour had it that they had run out of money to stock new books so it isn’t rammed to the rooftops – but technology plays a part in that, this is a fab design and looks lovely in the picture frame Sue. The frame reinforces the clean lines seen on this modern building. Well done – it is a lovely representation! .
What lovely quilting! It certainly complements your accurate design. Angles and curves all in one place. I really enjoyed reading this blog. It brought back many memories, as I used both the lovely old Reference Library ( when I was a student) and the Central Library. This was new then (when taking my Finals in 1974). I was rather shocked that it was being replaced after only 40 years and very amused to see that the upside-down ziggurat has been replaced by a another, right-side-up ziggurat!
Twelve Days of Christmas [and yes we know its Christmas Eve, but we like to get things off to a fun start.

Gosh, your Blog brings back memories! I was, obviously, not the only one to leave a new baby outside the shops!! -only be to safely ‘rescued’ half an hour later. Your account of learning to sew at your Mum’s side was like me too but it was my Nan and not my Mum. Thank you for sharing Margaret. xx
This one bought back more Memories! Thanks Ruth. Love the triangles and the water – very clever. Te circular quilting really addes to the whole design too. I have never thought about putting a fabric design in a picture frame – might give it a go another time. Really enjoyed the Blog too. xx
1969 was ‘My’ year.
‘Lay Lady Lay’ was written by Bob Dylan and recorded on Valentines Day, 14th February 1969. It hit the Charts in the July and reached No 5 in the UK. In the September I was 21 and a couple…
