Yesterday was the last day of term for the students on my Textile Inspirations course and it has become a very enjoyable tradition that we have a shared lunch.
As you can see, a good time was had by all. On the menu was butternut squash soup, lots of cheese, homemade bread, veg and dips plus yummy puddings.
Everyone was very quiet after lunch but continued to work on the day's challenge.
The challenge was to take the same motif that had inspired some Kantha stitching, which had been ongoing, and use decorative machine stitches to produce a new piece of work. I suggested either black thread on white fabric or vice versa. As you can see there are the beginnings of some lovely work.
I look forward to seeing how these all progress over the Christmas holidays - probably very slowly!
Speak to you soon
