The aim of the workshop is to teach us how to embellish using a whole variety of threads, buttons, beads, ric-rac, fabrics and embroidery stitches. When I discovered Sue's work, I started collecting things like different threads and can't believe how much I now have. I selected the birds as I think it would be a funky wall hanging. Our homework was to have our shapes stitched down and ready to go. I spent two days cutting out 36 little birds and stitching them onto my background. I really wanted to do more but we had strict instructions not to open our embellishing pack until the workshop so I decided to get her 'Contemporary Folk' book and stitch one of the projects that I had wanted to do for a while- so I made the needle roll.
It's only about 6 weeks until my workshop and I am counting the days!!!
