Denise Trunk Show

After such a long break, we are back with some great works from the talented ladies of the Buderim Patchwork Group, and to start us off, here, courtesy of Debby and the Thursday Night girls is another Trunk Show, this one featuring the wonderful work of Denise.
Denise  has lived in Papua New Guinea and also  in South Africa. She had lots of family photos at her trunk show including a few of her sons on their graduation nights & she actually made their formal suits. That was a huge job. Well done.
We also saw photos of her in costumes when she performed as an opera singer, we might get Denise to sing us a song on our next Trunk Show and Tell.
Denise is holding up a pair of cute hot pants which she made with a matching long jacket that she wore on her wedding day in SA. A beautiful bride she was too. It is their 40th Anniversary this year.... CONGRATULATIONS.

Meet Chewbacca Bear, isn’t he adorable?

Denise is a wonderful & clever embroiderer, below is some of her work,  Here she has done Elizabethan embroidery in the framed heart, Gold Stumpwork to create the gorgeous seahorse
and beautiful beaded and embroidered frog in the bulrushes and a dragonfly.

This was Denise's 1st sampler quilt done in Greens & purples

I think she likes purple! Here is another purple sampler, 'Spring Flowers' learnt at Spotlight when Denise & family were living in Townsville. All hand quilted.

A small sampler of Autumn Blooms. Denise has only finished this recently. Love the way you placed your doilies, you did a lovely job Denise.

Another lovely small applique "Welcome  Friends" quilt.

Small wallhanging, a Japanese Stained Glass Window.

This was an in-house mini workshop.  A very cute Christmas Tree card holder.
