Going to the ball

This is one of the first Raised embroidered figures that I have designed. I designed this embroidery for a course that I was doing through the NSW Embroiderer's guild. Called the Practical teachers course. We had to design & submit three of our own works to become accredited teachers through the guild. I must say that I did not obtain the accreditation, but I am on the guilds Guest tutor list.

My main passion in embroidery is Raised figures, & most of my inspiration has come from three ladies in the industry. The first is Barbara Hirst, the second is Kay Dennis & the Third but by no means the last Grace Lister. Grace is a constant source of inspiration to me & her work is amazing.
