Embroidery Exhibition and Open Day

Out came the trusty Campervan again yesterday to transport 8 ladies to Whakatane as
Wednesday was the exhibition and Open day for Whakatane Embroidery Guild
As many Guilds in the county try to attend the exhibition there is always a lunch with a speaker.
The lunch is always home made and usually a large selection of food, yesterday was no exception and was delicious
There was some beautiful work on display and lots to give you inspiration.
The picture above is one such piece it was just a bit different instead of just self coloured pulled threadwork the stitcher had put some decoration on the piece, this has really inspired me to try this for myself.

There was also an inital "L " decorated in stumpwork that I admired.

So, well done and thank you to all the ladies in Whakatane we all had a great day.
