Carving in St David's Cathedral, Pembrokeshire
Don't we all feel like this sometimes?
I am now back from Wales and have had a quick look at your blogs. I can see some really good work. I will send messages on Monday as I am off to Urchfont Manor for the first weekend of the 'face to face' C & G Level 2 Machine Embroidery course.

Beside the seaside

This was the first piece of work I tried, using the embellisher. The doorways of the beach huts were knitted Colinette yarn. I used the embellisher (needle felter) to attach the doorways to the handmade felt of the beach huts. Both were rather thick. Yes, I broke several needles, but it worked as a way of attaching one piece to the other.
The embellisher is now my favorite! We have spent many happy, industrious hours together.,
