I really enjoyed teaching granny squares this week – every one did really well and it was also good to get one very able student going on making straight sides on straight pieces of crochet by ending rows with chain turns. This weekend is all about sugarcraft as I decorate a very unusual order for a 40th birthday – results coming up tomorrow! This month I am teaching Creative Contemporary Embroidery at the WI’s Denman College and I am really looking forward to it! I am just putting an array of materials together now – will include free applique, beads, buttons, mixed threads, anything goes! People seem to be loving the updated style offered by sites like Sublime Stitching which gives an ancient craft such a fresh, modern look, so I am looking forward to seeing the different things everyone will make – limited only by their imagination! It’s like painting with threads! Here’s one of my little pieces for a bit of inspiration!
