Finally Moved

We are now settled in our new home right on top of a hill and have a stunning views over the South Downs…

View from House websizejpg In the move and when I unpacked I opened a few boxes and in one of them contained a cross stitch book with a piece of cross stitch and rusty needle that I had planned out on graph paper within the book. It was lovely to stumble on something that I had started at the age of around 11. Cross stitch was the humble beginnings of my career in embroidery.

ButterfliesMy regular ladies who come for private tuition (Jane, Mavis, Caroline and Jean) have now completed their silk and stmpwork butterflies and are now working on the seashells goldwork kit and have created some beautiful pieces of work for themselves. The image below is of silkshaded butterflies together which has been a wonderful project and should cheer you all up in this horrid weather today.

2014-03-08 PATCHWORK NEEDLECASE DAY (22)Recently, I have been spending a lot of time up in London and a few weeks ago we went to see the Wedding dress exhibition on at the V and A. There were some beautiful examples of lace and hand embroidery and the gallery’s at the V and A provided lots of inspiration for designing future projects. Next year my private students are going to be combing all their skills into individual pieces of work that showcase embroidery techniques such as Appliqué, Silkshading, Stumpwork and Goldwork. I hope to be able to post a few images of their work.

I am now preparing to teach Appliqué at the RSN on the 29th and 30th of November. The class includes appliqué, silver threads and some surface stitching such as silkshading and satin stitch. Currently, there is availability on the class so if you would like to join us then click on the link to view the project and also make a booking;

Hope to catch up again soon…
