I have finished the first part of the first embroidery on the stole. It is the bit that is nasty to sew so it has taken ages, but it is done now. The bush in the centre can be done at a normal speed because the thread is more friendly.
I am having the outlining done on my tattoo on the 4th October. Eek!
On Friday night I did a talk for the Swansea Branch of the Embroiderers Guild which went much better than I expected (well I thought so anyway!) I got to talk about my embroidery and I showed pictures and actual embroideries from the last 12 ish years. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and I didn't freeze which was nice!
Yesterday I did another day at Hobbycraft demonstrating amigurumi (crochet) animals. I am not sure I will do any more after next week (cards) because it takes a lot of time and no one really comes to see.
My parcel arrived when I was out as well and it was full of new threads for my new project which will mean the end of this website and the start of another. If you would like to know more, please contact me. This website will be taken down in the next week or so and replaced with another.
I live in Newcastle (UK) and I have been a professional embroiderer for over 10 years.
