  • My quilt piece

    At last I'm getting this photos business sorted out!!! I think!

    Anyway here's my piece. I finished it a while ago but wainted for the guy who gave me permission to do it,view it first. Because it is a company logo I made sure I had the right permission and then he sent me some line drawings for it. One of the conditions for using it was to acknowledge who provided the design seeing it is a regisistered logo. So I decided to put it where it could be seen so as I covered myself completely - hope it doen't distract from the work too much. (I just didn't want anyone else seeing it and copying it without the same permission.)

    It is my very first piece of Intarsia and I did have fun doing it. the arms ad face is NZ rimu, the beak??? and the shirt and cap is silky oak. It is on a piece of Gaboon ply. When I committed to a square all I could think of was to do this piece (nothing else seemed appropriate to me.) Anyway hope you all think it's OK.

    Let me be the first to say Good job mate!

    I've yet to try doing any intarsia, but I'd say you did great, better yet, you said it yourself you had fun doing it!

                What a witty design, and so nicely made, Teresa.

                      That is fine work, with a local flavor.

                      I like it, this quilt will definitely reflect it's multi-culturality.

                      Nicely done, and good subject,
                      DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                                Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                                From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....

                                Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                                The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                                WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
