Sorry guys – still no progress as I have spent the last two weekends working on other projects. So I will just tell you about last weekends sewing escapades if that is alright with everyone.
I have long admired the work of Georgina Bellamy of That Embroidery Girl and was so pleased to hear that she was going to be running a number of sewing courses based on her goldwork creations. So last weekend I drove most of the way around the M25 to Blackheath to learn how to make a 3D goldwork octopus. But it was well worth the trip.
After two days I managed to create the body and some of the legs – when sewing goldwork it essential to get the padding right and it is a very time consuming process. So now all I have to do is ‘bling it up’.
Here is what I hope it will look like…
Also on show was some of Georgina’s work which is just lovely….
I hope that next time I will be able to show you the finished fish…..but I am not promising anything as I am easily distracted at the moment!
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all in another 3 weeks.
