(woolly pompom sheep)
I'm just catching up with last weekend. I have pictures of the most beautiful embroidery from Richmond and Leyburn Embroiderers Guild Exhibition to share with you. First though just a couple of pics that I thought might make you smile from Woolfest 2012 at Cockermouth.
A sea of woolly pompom sheep! These filled the central auction ring with hundreds more lining the benches around the ring!
I couldn't resist this little cupcake as gift for Wonderful Man back at home.
Well there had to be more to it than just wool to please WM. The chocolate was tucked inside. I didn't take anymore photos as a lot of the stall holders don't allow it, plus it was far too busy and extremely soggy. Sorry. (Not to mention my I had my hands full with a one or two purchases of my own.)
Right onto the Embroiderers Guild Exhibition. Sit back and enjoy the pictures, sorry for the poor quality but I thought it would be a bit rude to have my camera flash going off and startling people, so these were flashless. If you click on the photos they should pop up larger, fingers crossed.
This one appeared in a recent Workbox magazine.
A mermaids purse
Work by my lovely friend Jeannette.
I luuurve French knots!
Silk ribbon embroidery on the lid of a box.
Work by my lovely friend and companion for the afternoon, Janet. (the black mark in the sky is actually somewhere in my camera lens, can't get rid of it.)
Machine embroidered purse.
This was in a glass display case, sorry about the reflection spoiling it.
And lastly my favorite piece. I just love the jumble of embroidered flowers.
Well I hope you enjoyed our little outing. To update you on my to-do-list, I altered the prom dress to teenage daughters satisfaction, finished my felt flower brooches and delivered them to the gallery, (pictures next time maybe) and have almost finished another felt picture, no piccies yet as it's a secret gift, ssh.
Now I'm off to the post office before it starts raining AGAIN!
Till next time
