Crazy Quilting Granny

After being a mostly sane Quilter for a long time. LOL, I now get my enjoyment from Crazy Quilting,
I love embroidery, Beads, Buttons, Lace and Embellishments, having a large collection gathered over many years.
The wall hanging I am working on at present I call " Freedom to Fly"... All Creatures with Wings should have freedom to fly.
This includes my imagination of course.
Lots of Birds and Butterflies adorn the blocks, the Rosella on the top righthand photo and the Kookaburra on the lower photo are sew on motifs owned by my Husbands Grandmother.
so these Quilts become memory Quilts as well.
Now even Fairies have wings, I found a beautiful Fairy design to embroider so I think she will find a place on a block also.
Please don't send a straight Jacket yet, it would restrict my hands , I did tell you I am crazy

Trying Again

Today I had a lovely day stitching with friends at Patch n Quilt in Gisbourne Victoria,
Thank you girls for making me feel so welcome after I have been away for so long.
Thanks also to Liz, for the ride, you have all convinced me to try Blogging again.
Love R.
