Been very very busy . Between trips and projects and so I kind of ignored all postings, so I will have to apologies for my lack of posts .
First on the middle of October I have been in Hampton Court at RSN and started my Blackwork embroidery module . OK, I have to recognise I am very disappointed with myself . I was thinking I am OK after I did my daughter's picture , but NO.
Half or maybe more is wrong
Anyway I have changed the picture .
Getting back in Dublin I had to go to the Knitting & Stitching show in RDS Dublin .
There I had great time helping out at RSN stand and helping the future tutor Kate Barlow in the workshop . We had teach whitework embroidery for two days and Blackwork for two .
The whitework had been very successful maybe due to the fact Irish people love white ( Mountmelick embroidery , irish lace all been white).
For the blackwork the problem been the light , not very bad but after certain age you really can do with a better light and maybe some magnifiers.
Here I try my hand at teaching ....
Well is not to bad if you have some time to do it . 1:30 h is not really in off and in special when people don't know to do to much .
There was I think more for us to learn than for the students ... ha ha ...
Well I hope to come with a more up to date pic for the blackwork .
Happy crafting all
