A little about me in my quilts...
This is for the first 10 years, when we travelled a lot in the caravan that my father built. It includes a ribbon from the Royal visit, a Brownie badge and shows that I was never allowed a red dress because "redheads can't wear red". I had copper coloured hair.
The next 10, or my teen years, is mostly a record of my many extra curricular activites while at school and university. During my school years I rode my bicycle everywhere.
My third decade, my 20s, records my study and work as a librarian, my marriage and a grand overseas adventure, when we lived in Wales for a year. It is all arranged as chapters in my life, as books on a bookshelf. It includes photos transfers.
The final piece - the self portrait.
Not an easy exercise, but I think I managed some likeness!
It recognises my first quilting blue ribbon, and being president of our Guild, some more world travel, getting my ears pierced and walks on the beach.
