I know I said I was away... But I made record time back from Yorkshire this evening (The roads were very clear... I wasn't speeding... honest) and I thought that if I didn't share the photos of the work made in the class today right away, by the time I got around to it there would be something else to post about and then I wouldn't get around to it at all... you know what it's like.
So here we are... fifteen lovely ladies in the beautiful village of Snape in North Yorkshire working on a Tyvek playday... and these are the results of their endeavours.
They made fabulous flowers, scrumptious seedheads and beautiful beads.
I can't give credit to many individuals because I confess I did not learn very many names but the seedhead above and the work in the previous photo belonged to Julie who incorporated silk fabric and lace into her seedheads with amazing effect.
As for all the others... just enjoy the photos of their wonderful work...
I must mention Nancy who made the flower above despite not really enjoying machine stitching at all... but I did let her stitch the petals together by hand!
This pair of seedheads looked really frosty in real life with their silver stitching.
I was well looked after by Diane, who provided a super lunch and afternoon tea with cake for us all today as well as feeding me and giving me a bed for the night on Friday. Thank you Diane and thank you to all the ladies of the Snape Textiles Group for working so hard and making it such a fun workshop.
Now if you'll excuse me I really do need to go to bed!
