Here Tis

I said I would show you my other new stitiching project.
I went to a two day class at the Dunedin Art Gallery  last week.

This class was tutored by Margaret Light , she is from Sydney.

Margaret has a great following, we had six ladies from Auckland in our class that had all done classes of hers before.
The Gallery was a beautiful venue to spend two days.

This is the sample of the Songbird Necessaire that we were making.

Lovely linen to stitch on and the kit included hand printed linen by the girls at Prints Charming.

I have never done such fine detailed work before and it took me some time to get into the swing of things.
But I did enjoy learning new stitches and it was made easy by the totally knowledgable tutor, she was great.

I would attend one of Margarets classes again and look forward to next year and what she will be teaching at Wanaka Embroidery School.
