Christmas Card Competition
Am delighted to have won the Facebook Christmas Card Competition run by the School of Stitched Textiles where I am studying City & Guilds in Embroidered Textiles. My piece, shown here on the left, was worked in undyed perle cotton and silk on pale blue linen.
I have almost completed Module 2 of the course, which focuses on canvas work and counted thread embroidery but with the interetsing theme of 'Industry'. A day at the Manchester Science and Industry Museum provided lots of photographs and ispiration for the set projects. I'll post some photos of the resulting embroideries here soon.
