A weekend of stitching with Jessie Chorley at Hope and Elvis......

It is now Wednesday, and I am still on a high from the weekend of stitching at the Jessie Chorley workshops at Hope and Elvis.
I was fortunate to have places for the Altered Journal workshop on Saturday and the Embroidered Objects workshop on Saturday.... and to make the weekend complete, I shared it with my daughter - a perfect girly sewing weekend !

I have attended Jessie's workshops before and I learn more and more every time. She has a relaxed way of teaching and always ensures each student is at their ease - we all walk away from the classes with finished pieces or 'work in progress' to ensure we have many days of enjoyment to follow adding the finishing touches and completing the project.

Louise was, as always, the perfect hostess. Her studio is a Tardis full of what appears a never ending range of 'raw' materials to keep us content. She somehow always manages to find everything we need to keep us stocked up on our creative journeys.  Miss Debs catered a fantastic French inspired spread (as you can see below, it proved very popular) influenced from her recent visits to the Flea markets of Paris - she brought some of her lovely linens - and of course I bought a large bag or two full. 

I have posted more wonderful photos from the weekend onto my Facebook Page.

These are just some of the finished pieces from the weekend......
