So, when I discoverd the lovely shop 'het gaerehuys' in Ghent, I couldn't resist buying a kit.
It is from 'le chat dans l'aiguille', and they have wonderful patterns.
|I could spend hours in this shop...|
|this little basket is called 'Summer'|
|a lot of different stiches and colours|
So - still in emboidery-modus - when I read about a workshop patchwork & embroidery near my hometown, I quickly enrolled.
The teacher was Marie Suarez, a Spanish wonderwoman who makes the most exquisite designs.
It was just perfect. We learned a lot of new techniques, stitches and tips&tricks to get a professional result.
This is it , after 2 days of 'hard' work.
|working with felt & jeffitex|
|all 4 sides have different emboidery|
|would be nice for easter eggs too, in yellow/purple...|
For more inspiration, I bought her delightful book filled with little embroidery projects.
Many thanks to Sophie Van Driessche and Patchwork Atelier Varsenare, for organising this wonderful and inspirational workshop, the great lunch in the garden and the homebaked cakes.
