Been a bit poorly :-(

But back on form now.  SO what have I done, listen to lovely plays on radio 7, even watched a bit of TV, The Queen on channel 4 has been superb. And listen to Susan Boyle, a lot…. her new CD is wonderful, her version of the Rolling Stones Wild Horses send shivers through you, you have to stop and listen, a beautiful interpretation.

Done a bit of dyeing for my course work, this should have been really easy as I can dye fabric like typing my blog, ok perhaps I can dye fabric better than typing my blog :-)  But this was really hard work, must have been the germs causing me to get confused, but got it right at the end.

Did a bit of hand stitching in preparation for work shop at Textiles in Focus.  Quite please with results, this will now be developed into a Summer School at Bishops Hall.  Have been told that there are only 3 places left on the Mobile Workshop on the 6th February,so it looks like that will run. 

Really love doing this, never knew that teaching could be so rewarding, invest a fair amount of time into preparing the class, but worth every bit of it.  It was a good day when Pauline offered me this role  :-)

And our Thursday nigh lot are doing really well, Peter has even bought a sewing machine, it doesn't do straight stitch though……. it is one of those fabulous computerised embroidery machines

Peter sitiching Mosaic Patchwork - impressed arent you! Some of our work Peter's very impressive machine

Aren’t we doing well……………
