Today, it was my turn to attend a workshop!
We enjoyed excellent talks, inspected original prints and designs, then dived in at the deep-end to create a work inspired William Morris’s approach to craft.
My companion and I began a joint project – a cushion for her daughter – using a border designed by Anne and Morris-designed script.
We selected the shortest of the suggested Morris quotes:
‘Give me love and work – these two only’
As I had not previously encountered the double-sided interfacing used for applique and have very little embroidery experience, I was on a steep learning curve. Happily, workshop leader Susan Vickery was extremely helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our day.
The work is still in progress!
