About two weekends ago I got to attend the Sue Spargo (an international tutor) Class held in Ashburton. It was really enjoyable just to sit back and relax and totally indulge in stitching. I learnt some new stitches which were excellent. Bullion knots are now a new friend, where once I used to avoid them, they are now going like a dream - thanks to the new needle Sue gave us. My tree looked quite a lot different to the others as I did not purchase the kit that was available so had to get a tree design. I am happy with my tree - it is taking on a paisley look I am thinking! You can see where I am headed although there is loads of work still to do as all the leaves need stitching on them. I have done plenty of bullion knots around the edges. I hope to finish it so will keep updating my progress here. It was lovely to meet people and get to know them a little over the two days. On reflection the highlight was seeing Sues wonderful work. She is certainly a prolific stitcher. Check out her web-site and blog.
