This second workshop was to create an embroidered seascape. This time the embroidery was by hand and Julie guided us very skilfully through the design process which for me is always the hardest part of getting started on a project. It was another extremely enjoyable day and everyone left with a framed seascape to take home. I have mine in my sewing room and I am very happy with it!
The latest workshop I have attended was not actually sewing related, although I have been to quilting classes with the same lovely ladies, Terry and Hazel of InStitches in Wokingham earlier this year. However, this latest workshop was using quite a different material..... willow.... and the instructor was a lovely lady called Judith Needham, who guided us through making several different types of willow Christmas decorations and ornaments including a wonderful stripped willow angel. Another lovely day with some beautiful items to take home.
As I have rather neglected my blog the last few months, I thought that it might be nice to have a Christmas giveaway to end the year on. I have collected together a few bits and pieces from my sewing room which I will package up in a box and send to the lucky winner. All you need to do to enter is to leave me a comment wishing me a Merry Christmas! I will pick a winner at the end of the day (GMT) on Friday, 15th December.
Now all that remains is for me to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! I am expecting to have more time on my hands both for sewing and for blogging in 2018!
