Homework and GWE

When you are at school you find that weekdays are full of excitement and enthusiasm and then when you get home at the weekend with loads of homework that excitement and enthusiasm slowly dissipates. I feel much the same about college and C&G. I was so enthusiastic over the first weekend but am finding it really hard to get homework done. I did manage to stitch another colour circle (but my camera is playing up so I will show it to you tomorrow). Then yesterday I stitched some tonal pieces to illustrate light, medium and dark areas using the same design. They are interesting when put close - the grey mid range is not too obvious, in this photo. Then I stitched two using analogous colours but still using the same design. I do like these. The final picture is of another exercise, the name of which escapes me right now, but I did enjoy it. GWE - The Great Western Embroiderers - I have volunteered to be the membership secretary for this new group. We are affiliated to the West Counties Embroiderers who are a large organisation rather like the Embroiderers Guild but covering the West Counties of the UK. The GWE is based in Wiltshire and will cover the county and hopefully over time some of the surrounding counties. Our next meeting is on Tuesday 9th October at the Blackthorn Centre and further information is available at this site: www.margaretharris.co.uk. If any local to Wiltshire who is interested in textiles in any shape or form please feel welcome to attend.

C&G is a lot of work -- but think of all you'll learn by doing the exercises.... :-)

Hi, stick with it, it's hard work but very much a case of the more you put in, the more you get out of it. I really enjoyed part 1 & 2 embroidery and learnt a great deal but found it hard work as I work full time.
