So, bearing all that in mind, it will not surprise you to know that I didn't get enormous amounts of stitching completed!! I did manage to take a few portable projects with me here are there and I thought you might like to see them.
To make things easy, I decided to treat myself to a couple of pre-printed embroidery pieces to stitch. These were designed by the very talented Anne Brooke of H-Anne-MADE and are great fun to stitch.
I have now finished the embroidery on both of these panels and have managed to frame the first.
Before I was away in July, I had also started work on a small machine embroidery project of my own design - a seascape.
I was able to add the hand details to this while I was travelling too and I have now finished and framed it and I really love it!!
Finally, while I was in the UK this past weekend, I managed to talk my husband into entertaining himself for the day (luckily we have a niece and her husband who lives in Lincoln who looked after him!) so that I could attend a workshop at the fabulous Needle and Thread Workshops run by Sally.
The workshop was taught by one of my favourite textile artists, Cathy of Dear Emma Designs and I had great fun there making a sweet little free machine embroidered lantern.
The whole day was superb and if I can, I would like to go to another workshop there!
Well, I think that has just about covered everything that I have been doing. I hope you have all had time to be creative over the last few months. Look forward to catching up with you all again soon! 😊
