Arts Alive workshop (warning...lots of pics)

What a wonderful time we had...

...at Arts Alive in Crickhowell!!

Paint all over the place....

...tables (and floor) littered with bits of fabric and threads...

...lots of teas, coffees, chatter  and laughter...

...AND....

...planning for more later in the year!! YEY!!!!!

Three days of this....





...plus learning Chemanthy stitch...





Getting started on some Tribal pieces...










...playing "Hunt The Sequin"!!!!

(...and "NO" Katherine...your bum doesn't look big in those jeans!!)



Some finished pieces.....






...and almost finished.




Thanks to Arts Alive for organizing this....

...and to Helen, Abby, Fiona, Liz, Celia, Helen and Katherine for being such good students!

I'm now looking forward to doing something very similar with the Lincolnshire Embroiderers Guild and at Stitching in the Dales next month :-)

Happy Easter everyone.....

Chris, your whole blog is lovely to see today, with your colors and stitching, but I have to say that seeing your students work just brings a huge smile to my face!
