I'm loving my course at Somerset College of Art and Design, it's hard work and very time consuming but it's wonderful to be part of such a inspiring and creative environment.
My stitching has taken a back seat to painting and drawing but as it's the holidays I gave myself a little treat .
I designed and embroidered this little Etui.
It took a while to decide on how to work on the construction, but then came the real pleasure of stitching the design.
The pearls make the edges look pretty too
The pockets are to hold your stitching needs and the centre is a little pincushion.
2014 will be busy for me but I'm looking forward to it.
Happy New year to you all too.
