AQC Update

Here are some of the Egyptian embroideries brought out for the AQC by Jenny Bowker. The two Egyptian gentlemen shown in the previous post are proving to be the hit of the show. Watching the speedy needle creating the most amazing designs are keeping viewers mesmorised. I think they are astounded at the interest shown in their work.

The first one below is the one I bought and I can't wait to get it home

These ones are based on door designs and are meant to be hung over doors

Traditional designs taken from tombs

We loved these ones too

The quilt show downstairs is also providing popular with tACTile group pieces definitely my favourite.

This is just a taste but go their website for more on this talented group of Australian Art Quilters

Dinner on the banks of the Yarra with quilting friends topped off and exhausting but great day
