I can't believe it's April already and I haven't written on here since January.

I have had a very busy year with a couple of holidays, a couple of bouts of
flu and a new casual job but more about that another day, this post is to tell you
about a couple of days I have just spent doing workshops
with a wonderful textile artist .

The workshops were called 
Collage and stitch
Print, Collage and stitch and I loved them.

Day 1

Was Collage and Stitch.

This was my inspirational pictures.

and gradually my picture takes shape

I liked most of my finished picture especially the 
part around the groin but think the 
hut is out of proportion.  

These belonged to my neighbours ...

 This is what we were aiming for.

Day two .

Was Print, Collage and Stitch.

This was amazing fun, like being a kid again
as we stamp loads of paper in our chosen colours

with a huge choice of resists and stamps.

Before arranging them into a long hanging

Stitching and embellishing with
with lace, buttons, stamps, 
the world is your oyster. 

I love seeing the result of these workshops,
the way we all have the same brief and yet the results are
all so different.

Anne is a wonderful teacher and a lovely lady, I'm hoping
she will come back to Norfolk again as I will be front
of the queue for her next workshop.

I promise it won't be so long before my next post.



  1. Great to 'see' you again, Gill. Great workshop and lovely results. The flu is still doing the rounds up here. My boss and her husband have been coughing and sneezing all week and I've done my best to try and avoid the fall-out!!! I can't possibly suffer another virus - two's plenty for one winter, to be going on with!Intrigued to hear about your job. x
