I have had a very busy and very enjoyable weekend – I have been teaching, gardening, socialising and doing what I could to help with our Embroiderer’s Guild exhibition.
I went on Friday after work to help set up (and deliver the muffins!) and took all the pics below then. Went back on Sat to collect everything. they had a very successful day with lots of visitors and everyone was very impressed by the standard of the work. You can see why.
As it is 30 years since the group was founded we created a special exhibit made up of 8 inch squares in all the colours of the rainbow. The brief was to stitch your square with any sort of technique in mainly that colour and the finished effect was excellent. This collection has now gone to be exhibited at our local museum.
As you can see we have some amazing talent in our group!
Dashed back from that to go and see Isabelle my next door neighbours’ granddaughter who was having her first birthday party. Here she is looking a bit sleepy after opening all her pressies with her Auntie Naomi.
Ellie has had great first week at Uni – lots of going out making friends and has had a couple of lectures including one with skeletons!
I spent part of today doing my homework for Creative Textiles class tomorrow – I am working on a piece inspired by pics I took of some of the clematis growing in my garden this summer. We are doing transfer printing tomorrow so will post some pics of what we do later.
