When you go away for a wee break you always have to make up for it somehow and we have been working away all weekend. Mind you the garden has never looked so good. The bark falling off the Eucalyptus trees is nearly at an end and my one and only tomato plant still looks very promising. I will go off to the shops tomorrow and get the secret ingredients for it and even consider buying a few more plants on the basis of possible success.
I have finally got my act together and loaded the information on the web for Hot Needles, Cool Stitches workshop which lots of people have been waiting for. I have been doing quite a lot of new exploring and hope that this workshop - the next level for the embellisher - works well.
When I was at Ally Pally, I met up with Marion Barnett and she very kindly gave me a copy of her new book - Exquisite Evolon - which was very kind of her. I have not done much as yet but the book is full of lots of ideas and I am hoping to get playing with Evolon very shortly. Thanks Marion. I have done quite a lot fo work with Lutradur which I like but Evolon has a wonderful feel to it - we also have Evolon Plus which is very soft - I can feel some experimenting coming on.
Finally - I thought I could share my secret of where I am going to teach in May 2012 now that I have signed the contract and sent it back. I am teaching at the Embroiderers' Association of Canada Seminar - Island Images. I feel so honoured to have been chosen and really looking forward to it. So is the suitcase carrier and tour guide....
