Elaine's Trunk Show - Part 2

It is sometimes difficult making decisions on just which wonderful goodies to feature in a Trunk Show, and that is certainly the case with Elaine's treasures.  Not only the volume of work but the variety.  To show as much as possible there are a number of collages, to get a larger view just pop your cursor on the pic and left click, a larger version of the photo will pop up for easier viewing and more detail.
In this collage the top two pics are of full size tablecloths worked in hardanger by Elaine, the cute tablecloth with the embroidered daffodils was done by Elaine's Mum many years ago, then there is a hardanger table runner and another smaller tablecloth, also worked in hardanger.  Now in one of those beautiful works there is a line missing.......kid you not!!, Elaine spotted it when we were taking the pics.......I thought she was pulling my leg, but eventually she made me see it, miniscule it is too!!
Elaine used 'Glenshee' Linen for her works which she thought had ceased to be, but looking for a little info, found that it is still alive and kicking, although the prices have increased somewhat.

Elaine enrolled in a class to do a Medallion quilt with Sonia Solly, a local tutor, knowing that she had to have a center piece, Elaine chose the little Pharoah tile but soon found the center had to be extended, with some help from Sonia this stunning  medallion quilt was created.

The hexagon quilt was started while Elaine was on a holiday, hand stitched and longarm quilted by Fiona from the Quilting Fairy.

Elaine also has many folk art paintings adorning the walls in her home, all having been exhibited and many winning prizes, there is also a lovely clock as well as a pair of cross stitched framed roses (bottom right pic)

These landscapes have quite a story, the bush hut was a raffle done by her tutor, and won by Elaine, she then went on to complete the 2 river scenes, both are in Shoalhaven N.S.W.

This lovely work is Elaine's favourite.

Elaine is busily working on 3 other quilts for family members, just awaiting borders and quilting.
A vibrant 'Golf' quilt,
A sailing themed quilt, for a sailor in the family.

And this navy and white quilt to be.

and the final pic - some more of Elaine's Folk Art creations, including just a few from her Christmas themed collection.
It was a real privilege to be a guest of Elaine and her Darling in their home and to view all the wonderful creations of this very talented lady.  Thank you Elaine. -A
