The surface of this piece has changed since you last saw it. There are mirrors, there is lace and there are bullion knots. This will be the first ''hoop'' piece I have made for France. It still needs a couple more mirrors and a little more lace before it's finished. I really feel like I am making progress for the event in France. I don't have any completely finished pieces yet but I have a few that are almost done, I have been organising labels for my work and I have sourced the materials for my workshop so I feel quite calm and in control. I hope it lasts.
The first day of class was a huge success yesterday too. (that's the feedback I've had so far) ...sigh of relief.....a confirmation that I'm moving in the right direction.
I have been asked a few times about ''London'', about the London gathering I held last year and whether it will be happening again. I'd like to get a sense of the demand for that. Can you let me know if you would be interested in me doing something similar again? Bear in mind I am hoping to hold classes from home later this year too so those of you quite near me may not want to go to London. (bear in mind also that there is NOTHING near me of interest to an embroiderer. We have a KFC and a football club....that's it)
In addition to the classes from home, which would be for a maximum of three people at a time I am hoping to hold one on one tuition/embroidery/cake eating days...again...would you be interested in that? I would be really grateful for any indication of whether or not these are good plans.
This morning I started to put Christmas away. I am half way there. I now need to hoover up a mountain of green needles and glitter......I will see you on the other side.
