Embroiderer's Guild meeting

Our monthly meeting was tonight and Pat Trott came to give a talk on Mountmellick work. (sorry I forgot to take photo's) I have never tried this technique, which originates from Ireland. It was a very amusing, interesting and informative talk. Not only did we learn about Mountmellick work we also learnt about all ins and outs of getting a book published. I have also managed to get a place on the Myfanwy Hart class being run by our Guild in July-dyeing to rust. I shall now have to start looking out for rusty bits. Art Van Go is coming to our Guild next month, Viv is demonstrating AND bringing the van!!!!!!!

What fun! Pat is lovely so I'm sure you had a great time.

Getting a book published is a long process but such a buzz when it it happens.
Give my regards to both Myfanwy and Viv when you see them. I know both ladies. Viv stayed with me once and the 'van' was on my drive.

Did you have a go at mountmellick work? I haven't tried it, but I like the look of it. Lots of work in it though, I think!

I hope you enjoy your rust dyeing workshop with Myfanwy. I am doing a Myfanwy Hart workshop in the summer on the embellisher. Have a great creative week, best wishes, Carolyn
