28 down and only 2 to go!

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A couple of months ago I posted about a faux pas I made creating two fabric pages for a project that started 16 months ago.  These pages were to be theme "Venice" and I was careless when I read the specs and incorrectly created my work based on "Vienna"!  Looking back, I wonder if part of this mistake had anything to do with the anxiety I was experiencing.  These pages were for Frieda Oxenham, a talented and award winning quilter from Scotland.  There have been three people who have definitely been my sources of inspiration since I began exploring textiles - Viola, Beryl Taylor and yes, Frieda!  Links to each of their websites are on the right hand side here.

I am grateful for this challenge though as it pushes me to continue to improve on my skills in hand and machine stitching as well as beading and embroidery. 

So, without further ado, here's the before and afters along with a few macros !  I have one set now 80% complete - my last two pages and this sixteen month project will have reached its conclusion.

Thanks for reading and don't forget to click on the bullseye above to the right to enter the giveaway.
