... And a wedding

One of our forum members Audrey is about to get married. Carrie, who is brilliant with textiles came up with the idea or making a wedding present from us all. We had to design 4 squares 2.5 x 2.5 inches in jade and cream (ish!) and she very kindly took on the job of putting it all together.

They're also perfect for this week's Arty Girlz small art challenge and Crazy Amigos hearts

Here are the squares .....



... and here's the fabulous finished article.

Carol - love your squares. I just adore the gold material, and love the different elements you used - like lollipop sticks!!!!! I had so much fun inspecting each different piece. Thank you so much for being part of this. I can't wait to get the finished piece hanging on the wall!!!!
