extraordinary embroidery

i took another course at the make lounge this week. i think i'm addicted and there's going to have to be some kind of intervention. i fancied learning some embroidery skills and wasn't disappointed by the course. there was the usual friendly but purposefully speedy atmosphere to make sure the indecisive's like me keep up! we could choose from any set of iron on transfers in the shop and i was spoilt for choice again. i decided to use one from the artist series, which had been designed by julie west. thanks to her for the cute weather inspired patterns.

my favourite part was deciding on the colours and stitches to use to fill the pattern. it shows how a shop bought pattern can be personalised and the different interpretations were really interesting to see. hopefully i'll finish my embroidery sometime in this millneium, so i'll post pics when its completed.
