Itch to Stitch photography & new projects added today…..

Hello again Everyone,

Bill and I are back from our Northern France Tapestry Tour and today we spent the day photographing projects for Issue 96 of Itch to Stitch and now getting ready for our Together We Stitch Weekend at the Hilton Hotel a 10 days time. Never a dull moment here!

Our trip to France was marvellous and I will sort through the 657 pictures on my camera and publish some of these shortly. We visited the Bayeux Tapestry and even though I have been before many times – it was still amazing….We went on to Claude Monet’s Garden – I will never tire of that enchanted place. I am grateful to Neil Cuthbert, a new member of the CSG team for letting me use some of his pictures here. At least this way you do get to see evidence of the trip!

Claude Monet Trio

I thought you would like to see the holiday project for this year – I was completely bowled over by my last visit to Monet’s Garden  in Giverney so had no problem using inspirational material from my last  trip to create a Claude Monet Trio pictured above.This is now available as a complete kit – just click the link  for more information,

I used Hardanger embroidery for the lily pond and eyelets for the hollyhocks, neither of which were in evidence on this trip but that was hardly a problem. It is not just the variety of plants that make you smile – it is what is planted with what that makes you gasp…..I am working a another stitching project inspired by this special garden but more of that anon….

I have some news for you about a very exciting development coming to the CSG web site but I am not allowed to tell you anymore as yet – watch this space.
