Well, I went to the Village Textiles exhibition of C&G Embroidery last Sunday in the village of Minster near Ramsgate. The work was breathtaking! There were pieces stitched by hand and more pieces stitched by machine. I was bowled over, so much so, that I've signed up for a year's course in hand embroidery (with a little bit of machine stitching) with Village Textiles. First term starts in September and I'm so looking forward to it. I also bought some scrumptious hand dyed fabric - just couldn't resist!!
Thank you to all my friends who have popped on here. Your comments have been very, very encouraging.
