Bristol Parchment show 23rd June 2015


A few days after we came back from holiday,   we went to the Bristol Parchment show,  its was wonderful, I came home full of ideas and mojo working.   I also meet Carol again from the CD Sunday Challenge,  wonderful to see her again,  a chat over a cup of coffee.
I took so many photos these are just some of them,  believe me there was so much brilliant work on show it was hard to know what to look at first.  Anyway I cant remember who made what or what table they were on so this is just a few of the best photos to show you what can be done in Parchment.

 This was an outstanding picture of two swans

 He was lovely sat on his own just crying out to have his picture taken
 I don't know if you can see these planes but she did offer to stop them so I could take a picture thank you they were wonderful

The light on this picture but I hope you can see it,  it was another gorgeous picture

This cat was outstanding,  wonderful piece of parchment

 This picture every tatter will recognise,  even Vernon recognised as a tatting pattern that I have done more than once,  just shows he does take notice sometimes.

I love this and brought the pattern for it,   no idea when I will do it but anyone who knows me will know why I had to have the pattern.

 This picture is beautiful I wish I could do this pattern, I know one grand daughter who would love it,  well she's mad on owls,  she would loved these owls.

 Spiders web anyone,  its actually in parchment a lot of cutting!

Are you hot and need a fan......

 Glove anyone for the posh lady about town,  I don't think it would wear very well but it was a beautiful design.

 This was beautiful it was on a glass mirror and then spinning around,  totally gorgeous this picture does not do it justice

This design is by Anne Quinn,  she had just come back from Madeira herself and this was to remind her of her holiday,  it was beautiful and I have the pattern so I am going to try this one,  she is on Facebook so do look her up she has some wonderful butterfly designs,

Well that's the best of the photos of the show,  it will be again in Bristol next year in June, I don't have the exact date but if you can try and go its really is worth it.
Hopefully I have now caught up with posting and I can get back to some ordinary posts.
