Where did the week go?



Machine embroidered beads

As you can see from the above image I have posted an old picture of machine embroidered beads. The reason is - that beads and machine embroidery are the two things that I have been working on this week.

In October - I am teaching class - "Machine Embroidery for Beginners" here in the village. It is good to teach class - because it has made me think about the free machine embroidery that I do - and I have had to go back to basics - and re-visit techniques that I have not done in a while - and look at them with fresh eyes in order to teach them to others.

I am hoping to do 4 sessions, once a week, in October. Although I have been very lax about publicising it anywhere - so I expect we shall be a very select little group!

I have also been making beads for a gallery show in November - so beads and machine embroidery have been filling my head this week - which - I have to say has flown by so quickly!

My thanks go out to Judy,
Who after visiting my blog - and being very inspired by the beads she saw - has credited me, and linked back to my blog - much appreciated.

Be sure to check out her beads and her lovely silk dying.
