Look what Postman John brought me...

On a dull, wet Friday Postman John made the sunshine with the parcels he brought me.
 Some fantastic photo cards of the work of CAROLYN SAXBY along with one of her lovely beaded crystals and some midnight blue eyelash yarn.
This is a photocard of one of her embroidered pieces.
 I know its not Christmas but I could'nt resist these white cards.  They are going on my inspiration wall to help me with the new course I am starting on Monday with Karen Ruane.  
Speaking of Karen, my second parcel was from her in the form of this beautiful fabric & paper embroidery. It is stunning and that also will influence my forthcoming course work.
 I hope Mister Postie brought you something nice to chase away what has been a bit of a damp squid day.

  15. I'm still sat here ..... I went to look at Karen's work and WOW.... amazing and beautiful stuff. Now I find myself wondering about perhaps doing this class ....

    I should send her an email I guess to find out what a person needs to know about embroidery etc. beforehand.... I don't really sew ... is it all put together by hand? I can do hand stitching and have done a bit of embroidery in the past.... but, need to know more about how much she will show us and what I need to know...
