The Northern Ireland Embroidery Guild 17th - 19th January - part the second

 It was worth having a little hint in the last post - Janet sent me 2 images of how she is beginning to stitch in to her samples.

 
 Starting to look good . . .

  The one day workshop on Sunday was A New Starting Point - the day started well with Noel cooking me an 'Ulster fry' - How could I refuse???
 
 A girl needs a good start to the day . . .

I must say that the ladies of The Northern Ireland Embroidery Guild  www.nieg.org.uk are very good fun - and also VERY talented. I had the best weekend teaching this fabulous group of women.

 The ladies working hard.
 
 Just look at that bottom lip . . . !!!! Joanne/Joanna was particularly good fun.

 
 Lots of layering of papers, painted Bondaweb and of course - sparkles.

 
 
 
 
 
 

The papers were then printed onto - preferably with a colour that is already in the works so the print isn't tooooo 'in your face'!!

 

 
 

 I will show you the finished samples in the next post before I dash down to Exeter for the Craft4Crafters show on Wednesday.

 
 The group also tried the newspaper faux chenille which I will also show you after the weekend - I took so many pictures because the group produced so much splendid work.

I can't leave this post without another image of Tess - The Wonder Dog! 
She made it very clear to me on Sunday morning as I was packing my case that she really would like to come home with me . . . . . 


 . . . if only - I think Catherine, Noel and Matthew might have a little something to say about that. I will just to go back again . . . Ha Ha!!!

Have great weekend everyone.
