There have been a few updates to the Members Galleries, and here is just a small taste.
Glenda Hudson has shared a quilt she made. In her own words:
“I made this quilt in memory of my mother. Some of the threads were from her workbox. Quite without thought, I finished it on her birthday.”
Thanks, Glenda. I’m sure many of us sometimes like to incorporate both tangible items and memories of loved ones into our work.
Pat Bootland has stitched this lovely piece:
And another postcard from our 2014 Exhibition Challenge, “Stitching Love and Hope”, inspired by WW1 silk postcards, and created by Carmen Zanetti.
This was entitled “Lark Ascending”, and Carmen tells us it was inspired by her grandfather, Narciso Zanetti, who was an artillery officer in WW1. He used to speak about hearing the skylarks singing during the lulls in the fighting and the hope they gave him.
