It's that time of the year!

Don't you just love this time of year?
  • You can stay indoors without feeling guilty.
  • You can wear lots of layers to cover up your big bits.
  • Strictly Come Dancing is back on the TV - aren't the two Rickys wonderful in their own ways?
  • And best of all - it's Ally Pally time.

Carol and I will be demonstrating (and book signing) on the d4Daisy stand along with Maggie Grey on Friday at 11.30 and 2.30. Stand TGE6. If you haven't been to Ally Pally before its through the entrance doors in the hall on the left.

These are some Lutradur based samples of the really simple technique I will be demonstrating.









All created using the basic techniques and materials from the book 'Stitching the Textured Surface' - and believe it or not, no rust dyeing included. :)

I've also got a stack of postcards showing this technique, with the details on the back, to give away.
Please come and say hello if you can, it would be great to meet as many of you as possible.

I'll also be at the show with Shirley Sherris (Embroidered Jewellery) on Thursday and will be visiting again on Sunday - not sure yet about Saturday. If anyone has got 10 minutes to spare to say hello just let me know.

I'm off down to Brighton now for a few days - now that the weather has turned really cold and windy. :)

Every time of year has it's benefits and perks I've learned. I would love to go to Ally Pally and meet you all but I'm sure my feet and legs wouldn't last the day out! Have a great time in Brighton and I shall have to work from your book and pretend I've been to see your demos.

I shall miss you as I will be at Ally Pally on Saturday, I imagine Maggie will have your book available, looking forward to seeing it in the "flesh".

The only drawback to this time of year is the lack of natural light after late afternoon, but other than that I agree with you

I agree with you about the time of year when I can stay in 'playing' without feeling guilty.
I hope to be at AP on Thursday and Friday, so I look forward to seeing you in the flesh at last.

Now I would love to say that I would be at Ally Pally but I would be telling porkies wouldn't I.
Good luck with it all and keep smiling.

It looks like a great technique. Too bad I'm so far away.

Hope to catch you Thursday. Enjoy Breezy Brighton.

The colors on your Lutradur samples are beautiful. I'll be at Ally Pally on Saturday and Sunday. It would be nice if I could meet you then.

Will be coming to Ally pally on Sunday so will probably miss you but have a great time. With luck we might be able to catch up at the ERTF conference or I'm arranging a trip up to the V&A soon if you're interested.

I'll be there on Thursday and Friday, and am so looking forward to making your acquaintance in the real world!

Clare W said...

Have a great few days - I'm going on Saturday so I probably won't see you - another time!

Hi Lynda - so wish I could be there - love your technique postcards (they would only have to be half as good as they look on my screen to be fabulous) but unfortunately there are oceans in between us! In the meantime I will read (and use!!) your book and just pretend. PS Have fun - you deserve it!
