Hello

Hi,  Apologies for the lack of recent posts.  I can assure you I have been busy.
I've been practising my free machine quilting - using different tensions.
 
And I made a pressie for a friends birthday pressie.

And, I've been to a class with the Embroiderers Guild at the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.  We were given a very interesting talk and tour by one of the archivists. And then we went across the road to have our class with Alison Samain.  When I saw her work I was sure I wouldn't be able to produce anything like it.  But with some very good tuition, I did produce something that resembles her work.


I've also bought a few bits too.
Great buttons from Hobbycraft

And some ribbon from Wilkinsons - yes Wilkinsons.
So - I'm off to start pondering my piece for the Kickstart exhibition.

It's amazing how altering the tension can affect the thread in the bobbin. As long as you are having fun it is all good stuff :o)
