We had a really enjoyable workshop with Viv Sliwka at Sew Not Strawberry Jam. Just what I needed after my miserable weeks. Good company, lovely setting and good cake!
I just love this place, I may have mentioned it.
I loved the way Viv had laid out the little samples she used to explain what we could do. Absolutely no restrictions on what we wanted do.
These are my bits, I love my little grey brooch which says "Embroidery is easy to begin."
Lovely day, thanks Viv, thanks Sam.
Our latest voyage was our annual pilgrimage to the Knit and Stitch Show. All in all a good show.
Off to a good start with this amazing mural made entirely from re-cycled fabric by DAMSS
So clever. Mesmerising.
Well if that hadn't been enough our next surprise was a full sized fish stall by Kate Jenkins
What a huge amount of work and what fun. As was this exhibit from the Royal school of Needlework. The needlewomen are Elena Thornton and Connie Wynn.
These next darlings were on the New Zealand Contemporary Art stand he artist is Sherril Jennings.
and the last exhibit I photographed was this chess set by Mavis Walker. I particularly liked the pawns.
