Exhibitions & Cotton Reels
I had some exciting new this week, when I found out that one of my embroideries has been selected for the 2010 Open exhibition, at The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry
I did enter my larger piece which was not selected but luckily this one above of Abbey Fields, a park near where I live was chosen.
The opening night is on April 1st and the exhibition ends June 13th.
Today I have been at The Sewing For Pleasure Show at the NEC, I had a great time and saw so many people I knew.
Hello to Judy a fellow stitching friend, who has not got a blog yet, but should have one!
If you are going to the show, say hello to Kathy on the Embroiderers Guild magazine stand, who is very kindly displaying my work again.
There was so many inspiring textile works on display, including a display of work from the book, Inspired to Stitch by Diana Springall.
I loved looking at the Oscar winning costumes from the film 'The Duchess' starring Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes.
I have many old wooden cotton reels as I can't bare to throw them away.
I know I'm a bit strange but my life revolves around threads, so I have painted my own landscape on one of them, I think I may need to get some smaller brushes!
