Hello Chelmsford!

I've had a lovely day spent with fourteen ladies from the Chelmsford Embroiderer's Guild. Todays class was another "Machined Textures" and as always I was delighted by the variety of interpretations and the finished results. Most of the following photographs are work in progress, only one or two are finished, however they are all fabulous! Inspiration has come from landscapes, seascapes and rusted surfaces to name but a few. So here is the work of June, Angela, Kirsten, Diane, Margaret, Debra, Adele, Jeanne, Penny, Carol, Jennifer, Linda, Sheila and Jean but not necessarily in that order! Although I can pair most pieces of work with their creator I'm bound to get one or two wrong so it's safer not to try!

I've had a lovely day, so if you are reading, Ladies of Chelmsford, I hope you have too! I'll be back in Chelmsford in a weeks time for a talk... looking forward to that. But for now, I'm off to put my feet up, have a glass of wine and watch a DVD (French Kiss if you are interested!)


  1. Wow! Such talented ladies and an inspirational teacher! These horizontal layers really appeal to me and your ladies have used some wonderful colours. They deserve congratulating, as do you. Hope the wine is good! :o)

  2. didn't they do well, really like the first and last ones.

  3. They are all beautiful and so different. I particularly love the colours in the third one. Your glass of wine and DVD are very well deserved! Glad you had such a good day.

  4. These are absolutely stunning. Such clever ladies!


Thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to read what you have to say and try to reply directly by email when possible... although it sometimes takes me a while!
