SAL 19 – Too many things, to little time…

Aaaaah, hi everyone. Having finished my little fish I had my next project already sorted out. I was going to finish the goldwork lizard that I started on a course with Georgina Bellamy   however I was too impatient and have now almost finished it! So now will have to go back to my stash to find something else!!

I have been busy sewing in the last three weeks, but mainly on my goldwork and trying to finish off Christmas gifts (yes, I did say the C word!) for two sewing swaps that I have signed up for. Below are pictures of my goldwork bee and nearly completed goldwork lizard.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

  3. Hi, I love the bee – your goldwork is fabulous. Is it technically difficult? I have done blackwork which I thoroughly enjoy and will explore more.

      Hi there, I find that the padding and prep is the difficult and time consuming part with goldwork. Adding the coloured purls is a little easier as they are like long metal beads that need cutting to size. I haven’t tried blackwork yet – not sure my eyes could take it.
