I love surface embroidery, Goldwork and Stumpwork, all of which I try to incorporate into my Crazy Quilting which is also what I love.
I didn't start doing embroidery until a few years ago, but now this is all I do. My son and I recently created a FREE Embroidery App for iPhone-iPad-iPod, the link is on the left side bar as well as here. It's gonna be a while now unfortunately before I get an Android version up an running, son now has a full time job, and so our time is very limited what time we can spend together on it.
I teach several classes a year with Joggles.com, in the top page tabs you can navigate to the page where more info about what classes I do or up coming are listed. My next two classes are: The needlelace Dolphin on the 20th Feb
and Cheerful Flutterings on the 8th April.
my new FREE 2014 Printable Calendar. I posted a few posts ago on how to put it together.
I am a member of several Yahoo online forum groups, but mainly I am involved with Crazy Quilting International and their swaps, Southern Cross Crazies and their swaps, CQJP and their Annual challenge, but I would be far more involved with StitchMap, where you can learn many different forms of embroidery for Free. To get more info on these groups their 'buttons' are on the left or right side of the blog.
My ongoing major project this year is the CQJP project, which is the 12 Days of Christmas Wall hanging. Worked with goldwork and stump-work elements as well as incorporating crazy quilting. I am currently up to number 6.
I am locally involved in two craft groups and Scouts Australia. Fibres and Fabrics are a local fibre arts group which I am involved with. Here is the link to their blog. I am also Chief Steward of the Arts and Crafts division of our local show, here is the link to the Show Schedule if you are local and wish to enter.
I live in the wonderful north Queensland city of Townsville on the East Coast of Australia, a place of great inspiration for my embroideries.
I hope you decide to come back and tag along with me on my journey into Embroidery.
