I am not focusing on any particular thing at the moment due to the nature of Christmas, families, classes and cleaning....so when I get a moment to embroider I have my finger in a few pies...my sketchbook has been getting a little attention in the form of extending the page. My hoop has been getting a little attention in the form of a few French Knots here and there...I have to finish preparation for the STITCHED workshops....(top right side bar) and I tell you something...I can't keep up with my button girls!! I got up this morning to a mass of new images in our flickr group. My guess is they all have bleeding fingers, that or a few elves hidden in a cupboard! Please do me a favour and go have a look at their amazing work here...you won't regret it.
The class blog for January's cloth class is taking shape too. There is a video on there about cloth and how I choose pieces for my embroidery along with a couple of pages that explain my motivation and my thought process when making and embroidering. Registration is still open here. and although we don't start until January 9 the blog is open to you now if you sign up. That way I hope you have chance to build up your stash for the class and begin to make decisions on your own personal motivations and thought process.
Whether you wish to sign up or not there is some beautiful work in the flickr group of my last class that I am sure you would enjoy perusing...you can see that here.
The rest of Sunday? We are having a roast beef dinner......I don't have elves to do that, or a butler, oh what I wouldn't do to get a Butler!!! I keep asking Father Christmas....and I have been good.... but not a chance! so shortly I will be washing vegetables...then I am going to play with some cloth. I am so determined that cloth will play a part in my day...pressing, marking out, embroidering....even working on a hem would suffice....can you tell I am having withdrawals?
