That is what it was like the last afternoon of the fibre forum as each class member attempted to finish their bag ready for display on the public day Saturday. It is a funny thing that a hand embroidery frenzy is actually very, very quiet. All the chit chat and storytelling ceased! I had completed my bag (which was much smaller) the previous day and was relaxedly stitching a ‘fritillery’ tassel (another of Catherine Howell’s beautiful designs) with the help of Claudia who had come along for the last day.
My finished fritillary:
So here is a photo journal of the week’s stitching and some photos of the very lovely ladies with whom I had the pleasure of spending the week: Calm Catherine, Terrific Tina, Super Sue, Krafty Kate and Marvellous Marlene

Thankyou all, it was wonderful to share this week with you and get to know you all.
Perhaps we could reunite at another Catherine Howell workshop!!
