WQC Tui class

 On Sat 14th July WQC had Dianne Fussell come and 
teach her technique for making this beautiful Tui wallhanging.

"Theres tuis in my garden 2" by Dianne Fussell.
It is usually a 2 day class but we only had one day.
We spent the day free motion sewing beautiful rayon threads
 over a colour photo of the big tui.

This is me stitching away

My finished tui.  Only 2 more to go plus the background.
The feet get stitched once the tui is attached to the wallhanging.

 It looks great on our bed.  Shame it isn't for us!
"Happy Memories" made for a friend.
