Irene Coulthard Workshop



Today at Jayne's Attic I attended a workshop, with Irene Coulthard as the designer. She does hand embroidered Calico Gardens, and the samples she had with her were astounding. Here's what I did there today.





I've done a bit more since this was taken. It's supposed to be a rockery with leaves, french knots, lazy daisy stitches and rocks. We're back again tomorrow to do some more to it and I'll post another photo then. I had a really great day, learning lots of new techniques, and I bought Irene's book so I can practice some more and come up with something better.
Over the last few days I've been making some more fobs - suitable for scissors - and some thread collector sacks. Click on the link to Smokin' 2 to see.
