At last I can show you the embroidered pockets I created for my London workshop which passed us by in a flash over this past weekend. It was amazing, incredible, so much fun, so much embroidery, too much cake and too much chocolate, lots of laughing and lots of chit chat.
Later this week I will share our creations from the weekend but first the kits.
I am sorry L ....this will spoil your surprise I guess..sorry!!
Hand embroidered folders/pockets/pouches.....sequins, French knots, gimp, bullion knots....... all finished by hand. Hand stitched edges, cords and internal pockets....
Liberty fabrics, hand stitched and pieced hexagons (me!! I did those) ribbon, trim, stitched papers, embroidered scrim and collaged white papers and tiny little hand stitched pillows along with decorative paper surfaces, grids and textured background papers.
and not forgetting little bundles of paper balls for button making!
I think it was a huge success. I think the girls were happy with their kits. I am sure they will let me know if they weren't.....
I am playing catch up now. My washing machine is calling and I have suitcases to unpack. (the wheels broke on my suitcase...I now have the right arm of an Olympic body builder and the ache to prove it)
There was shopping. I will show you later this week.
The shop is open again for online learning classes, no cakes or chocolate I'm afraid but lots of happy stitchy things which will more than make up for that and later this week I may, just may have a couple of little artist books for sale.....watch this space.
