The week before last Japanese Embroidery UK ran one of their twice yearly classes which I attended as a student. I go to these classes once a year, it's nice to spend the time reflecting on my own embroidery and to get help and advice from my Sensei and other advanced embroiderers. Normally classes last 5 days, this time however we had an extra weekend for tutors and advanced embroiderers.
This was a wonderful opportunity to sit and discuss new design ideas, look at lots of pictures, and to admire all the work that my embroidery friends have produced since I saw them last.
I have more pictures to share of all the work they have been doing but here is one to drool over.
Flower Cart, embroidered by Wendy Weir. This piece is huge, it's about 3ft long.
