On Friday I received a lovely parcel in the mail - my Lucky dip prize for the Early Bird Christmas Crafting from Judith.
Such a pretty bag.
With goodies inside - a pattern. But there is more........
The stitchery pattern is Angel of Hope by Candlelight Creations, then there is a beautiful tatted bookmark in such pretty shades of green, and some lovely soft colours of DMC threads. Thank you so much Judith. All of them are beautiful.
My landscape embroidery is slowly evolving. I have been working on the wattle most nights. So far it has been done with french knots, mostly 1 thread and 1 wrap, except for the top wattle which is done in 2 threads and 1 wrap. This was the progress about a week ago. Tomorrow I will take an up to date photo, which has much more of the wattle stitched.
I have taken photos of the landscapes the other girls have done. I will post them tomorrow also.
Today we had our first morning of the new group at the Bribie Island Arts Centre. It is called Creative Embroidery and came about as a spin off from this landscape workshop. We decided that we needed to meet regularly to encourage each other with our landscapes, and to bounce ideas off each other. We will meet twice a month, and the group is open to anyone who would like to come along. We meet at the same time as the Textile Group and we find that our work overlaps with theirs.
Now off to do some more bloghopping and finding my favourite ones.
