Advanced Applique' Class

Just returned home after completing my third Diploma class at the Royal School of Needlework in San Francisco, California. The above picture is the view from the hotel . . . the weather was beautiful, not that we had time to enjoy it.

This class was Applique, I have never done applique, so it was all new to me. I loved the class and my tutor was wonderful. There were six ladies in my class, one doing advanced silk shading, one doing advanced tapestry shading with goldwork and three doing stumpwork. We had a great class and everyone completed their projects. Now we wait for our assessments.

The design is my own funny creation!

Next class will be blackwork in the spring.
