Well I haven't been a good Blogger once more. Time has been against me as I'm back at my studying again. A City and Guilds course in Design with an emphasis in Embroidery - of course! it's a Diploma level course so there is a lot of research, hence my regular visits to London, a good excuse to visit DD and DS.

I'm researching the History of English Embroidery and it's really interesting. I've also had to do some pieces in the style of the age. A split stitch Madonna, a Bayeax stitch tree and a goldwork letter S. I haven't taken any photos yet and will try to do so when they are all finished. I seem to have to start a new piece each week and don't have time to finish the one before.

Well this is half term so I might get caught up a bit providing I don't spend too much time online. So by for now. I'll try and post again when I have some time.
