Although most of the Members of the UKQU, there are a few Newbies who may not have made a Fabric Postcard. So, I thought I would share my Birthday Card Postcard which I have made for my No 1 Grandson!
When I was asked by Sylvia to write about Bluebells, I was intrigued and so set about finding as much information as I could. As most people in the UK who are Gardeners will tell you – the UK has been inundated with…
Wow your piece is really interesting and now I know why I am puzzled by some blue bells looking different! Thank you Sue. The piece is really lovely. Hope you are well and safe over in sunny Spain.
Thank you Ruth, I learned new things about them too, and I enjoyed making the wall hanging. Was going to give it away – but somehow it has found its way on to my workshop wall….. xx
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rather shocked that it was being replaced after only 40 years and very amused to see that the upside-down ziggurat has been replaced by a another, right-side-up ziggurat!
