I’m over the moon to have picked up 2nd prize for my Violin that was on show at the prestigious show the Festival of Quilts this last weekend. An amazingly large show, with entries and visitors from all over the world.
My piece was entered into the Quilt Creations section
This weekend 24th and 25th June 11 – 6
Next week end I shall be here displaying my work. Do pop in if your close by 😊
Scissor Keepers, tape measure and pin cushion
Close up of pin cushion
This is on a gold cord so you can wear it around your neck when in use, very handy if like me you’re always losing them under a pile of fabric!
Button explosion 😊
All these are now available in my folksy shop
And on 24th & 25th June I will be here
In the Forest Road area of Loughborough, 6 homes, 20 artists
11- 6 both days
I have been working on a series of letters, I have a love of typography as well as sewing.
I have decided to sew them all together to make a wall hanging
And in the future I may add more letters or numbers
But for now, it is finished, it took months to make
I may enter it into the festival of quilts this summer, so it can be seen by thousands……
I have also made the letters up into kits, for you to make your own letters, these are available now in my Folksy shop. Each individual letter is approximately 5″ square https://folksy.com/shops/SueTrevor
Here’s my latest piece of work.
Seven sided jug with a botanical flower and leaf design,
A spout at the top and a lovely swirly handle.
This took a long time to make and I had several ideas along the way which changed the look of the jug, the most notable being the swirly handle.
This textile violin, life size, copied from a real violin.
This took many, many hours of work.
It has a diamanté button on the back and little glass beads, and silver cord for the strings.
The ‘wooden’ fabric pegs turn just like the real ones do!
Wonderfully Opulent, perfect for the season
It has a beautiful mother of pearl button and an elasticated closure
And four leaves of black felt for all your pins and needles

I don’t know who invented the 1st watering can, they seem to have been around since the 17 century.
However, this is my modern textile veiws on it, life size, it seems to be right with my work,especially as I use flowers and leaves so much in my designs.
Hope you like it 😊
Here are some more photos of my teacup from different angles,some include the teaspoon too, made from hand dyed Egyptian cotton and silk fabrics with free machine embroidery. Available in my Folksy shop.
