Thank God it’s Monday

Only because I don’t have to go to work today!

It has been a very busy four days with the exhibition, especially for many of the members who were there every day. Claudia had a wonderful time wearing the white gloves and talking to visitors about the Junior Embroidery group exhibit. She also scored well at the close of the exhibition as the ladies gave her lots of leftovers from the gift shop. She now has a bag full of little bears and xmas stockings to give her friends and cousins for presents.

One of the lovely ladies who organises the Junior embroidery sessions was profiled at the exhibition. Her breadth of work is fascinating and her current obsession, Japanese silk embroidery, is meticulous and stunningly beautiful. Claudia kept going back to look at her little embroidered garden.




Our textile group had a lovely display of the boxes, clutch bags and Pauleen’s gorgeous scumble bag.














And here are two of our wonderfully talented textile group. Jenny was sitting stitching and Pauleen is standing in front of her botanical exhibit. I should have taken a close up of her leaf as it was such a beautifully fine piece of 3D embroidery.










Pauleen is presently taking names, and is overwhelmed by the great interest, for the establishment of a textile group within the Geelong Embroiderer’s Guild. We have interest from established artists, graduates of the Box Hill textile course and many other very talented textilers who have been creating a wide range of interesting pieces. We will be meeting once a month from February 2009, once we find a spare spot in the hall bookings. If you are interested, drop me an e-mail.

    Doesn’t Claudia look all grown up with her white gloves on.
    That is one job I hate doing at the exhibition.

    What wonderful work and how lovely that Claudia was able to experience the excitement of it all! I have been tagged on my blog to reveal 7 random facts about myself and then ask 6 other bloggers to do the same. Would you like to be tagged? I won’t be offended if you wish not to!
