I have just had the most wonderful weekend stitching with 19 other friends at the Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia Summer School. There were lots of classes to choose from but my favourite choice was the French Birdcage workbox and accessories by Christine P. Bishop. We spent 2 days working on the accessories that fit into the workbox and discussing the stitching and construction of the box. Everything was explained in detail and we were able to stitch enough to be able the complete other pieces with the information we gained in class. We did request a catch-up class toward the end of the year and Christine very kindly agreed to arrange a time and date.
Here is what I achieved in class.

On Friday was the Summer School Market Day and I was able to display and sell some of my charts and accessories. Although it was another hot day I managed to sell a few charts and chat to lots of lovely people from all over Australia. Thank you to everyone who bought, hope you enjoy your purchases.
There has not been a lot of counted canvaswork going on at the moment, but I will promise to get back to some soon.
Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
