Home and Happy!!

Well....

...it seems like I haven't been in my workroom for absolutely AGES!

But...

...we had a wonderful break away....

...and I thoroughly enjoyed my workshops and talk (even though my slideshow fell apart a bit!)

You've already seen photos of the workshop at Aberystwyth....

...so here are piccies from my lovely day with the Wirral Embroiderer's Guild.

They had opted for a printing day....

...and, boy, did they print!! :-)




They threw themselves into pots and pots of paint...

...getting wonderfully filthy....

...and produced some gorgeous colour combos.








 Sheets of delightful spears...




...and other bits and bobs....




Good job it was a fine day.....so that the foam blocks could dry outside after being washed.




Even the foam sheets from underneath turned into veritable works of art.




The last hour of the day was spent at sewing machines....

....but I have to wait for photos of finished pieces (as so much time was spent having fun with paint that there was very little time left for anything else!).

Thank you SO much for inviting me ladies...

...I loved every minute of your company!! :-)))))

ps....... I'm sorry if I haven't responded to emails or comments lately, but my wifi connection was a tad sporadic while I was away. I'll try to catch up now that I'm home for a while....

I love these bold, brightly coloured stamped designs, Chris. I'd like to try my hand at carving some foam stamps... The spears one is particularly lovely!
