Love the soft colours Christine... a reflection of the snowdrifts just outside my door.
Alas it is just a wee bit far to attend the class but I'm sure it will be fabulous.

Such beautiful pieces you have created, each one a treasure. I would love to attend your workshop but alas it is too far but I will be there in spirit.

So very beautiful - it is not a technique I know but very interesting …. what skills do you need to know before attending a course?

Hello, Dee - you just need basic hand sewing skills to do the workshop, if you can manage a running stitch you'll be fine. Best wishes, Christine
