Autumn Leaves

I have been soaking up the sun. I love Autumn, glorious sunny days... and enjoying these two lovely books that I bought recently. Each book has 11 beautiful patterns by Monique Dillard.

My Autumn leaves table runner is done except for the quilting and binding.

Our guest speaker at guild meeting on Saturday was Bren Brophy, Curator of the KZNSA Gallery. He spoke about Durban artist, ceramist and embroiderer, Hendrik Stroebel and shared images of his amazing work. His wonderful collection was created over the last 17 years. Incredible detail on such a small scale. Each piece is hand embroidered and set in his beautiful ceramic frames. His next exhibition will be held in November this year, I'm definitely going.                                                                                      

added these to my stash

Oil on water - Elle Matthews
Under the mercy trees - Heather Newton
