Time Flies

My daughter came to stay for a few days. It was lovely to see her and do a few things together. A long time ago she painted a picture for DH and I for our 25th wedding anniversary. When she was here earlier in the year she decided that it had to go. Her artwork has grown and changed since then and after some discussion it was decided that she would replace it with a more recent piece of work.
Here is the replacement. This is from her 12month 'artist in residence' at the Botanical Gardens in Brisbane. Isn't it just wonderful. We both just love it. You can see more of her work  here .

I have finished the centre of my Frost on the Ferns.

and this is the July block for the Canton Village BOM

I have been sewing a few different things, my BOM Marriage Quilt , which is now a month behind and some of my Trailing Vines and I bought a new quilt pattern. I'll show you it later. Next week I'm off to the Ballarat Weekend Retreat so I will try and remember to get lots of photos to show you.

I love the Frost on the Ferns block. These browns and blue goes together perfectly well ;-)

How wonderful that your daughter is so talented, but I guess your creativity carried onto her, it is a beautiful piece and wonderful work of art.

What a joy to have a daughter who is an artist. Enjoyed the link - the Layers of Life Agaracus is a beauty, as is the piece she gifted you with.
Always nice to see your WIPs.
Thank you for sharing.

Dorothy it is obvious that your daughter inherited her Mother's artistic gene. Love the fabrics you chose for Frost on the Ferns - it is a fun quilt.

The blue fabrics look very good in your applique block. I have that blocked prepped in the dusty purple shades but I don't know when I will make it.
