Embroidery In Progress

It's been a busy week, my children's parents evenings, staying late to help students with project work and helping out on a visit to Sewing For Pleasure exhibition, with twenty GCSE textile students.

All of them had a great time and loved the work shops, learning new skills.
The Knitting Association gave free lessons and this proved very popular with the students as they were given a free ball of wool and knitting needles.
I had to smile as three of them were knitting on the bus, while on the way back to school!
I have been working on these embroideries this week.
Another brooch and this landscape Trees In My Dreams.
I do hope you have a lovely weekend.

Delicious work as ever - I've just been feasting my eyes on your last few posts. Love that purple shade - gorgeous. It reminds me of the milk after my little one's had blackberries on top of her breakfast cereal. Emma x

Yes, it sounds like you've had a very busy week. Both of your pieces are lovely as always. The top piece reminds me of Springtime woodland walk and makes me want to try and get out at the weekend. I've been home feeling poorly all week but I think I need some fresh air!
Have a fab weekend! Carolyn

The colour combination on this piece is just breath taking.
