Great Western Embroiderers

Had a wonderful meeting with members of the Great Western Embroiderers today. We all took our finished work to the meeting ready for our Exhibition at Malmesbury at the Town Hall. I have mentioned it in a previous post ... but no harm in showing you the poster again. I was quite pleased to have finished the Cotswold sheep cross stitch, all framed and ready to exhibit.

We have also all completed one or more 8 inch square to be shown together as a mosaic. Seeing the squares all together as a mosaic was wonderful. All the different techniques and ideas on the theme, bought tears to my eyes to think how hard everyone has worked. Hope you can make it to the exhibition and see these 24 pieces of work that create a mosaic, and of course the other 60 pieces of work created by members. If you do go please leave a comment in the visitors book. I shall be there stewarding on Thursday 27th February and on Thursday 6th March from 11am - 1pm. would love to see you there, so please come and say hello. There are also other attractions in Malmesbury see here
This is my 8 inch square.... all hand stitched in natural colours on calico ( does not photograph very well without additional lighting).
