I had a bit of a hair raising trip back home to Brisbane today . There were major accidents on the range and then on the highway coming home. But I have had a wonderful three days away with friends and the stitching was just fantastic.
My class was a "white work" class with Jenny Adin-Christie. Jenny was trained at the Royal School of Needlework and was part of the team that worked on the wedding dress for Kate Middleton to wear at her wedding to Prince William. I can not speak highly enough of her wonderful skills in needlework, teaching and interpersonal interactions. You go to a workshop thinking you will learn one or two things. This workshop had me writting down at least six or seven a day. Jenny is only a young woman of 34 years but with skills that most of us only dream about. The world will gain so much from her skills and her creativity.
These are some images of her work (which she has designed and stitches) that are on her business cards. The first was for a commission the remaining ones are all available as kits.
I have ordered some of these kits so it looks like I am going to learn Goldwork.
