The End is in Sight

I haven’t had time to write a blog for a long time, as my Thread of Life project has completely taken over my life! I sew every spare moment I can to try and get my work as complete as possible, and as such I have struggled to find time to do other work, such as blogsging, and I’m always trying to grab a few minutes to answer emails. However, although I may have gone quiet for a while, the project is going incredibly well.
The deadline has now passed for work to be sent in for the exhibition, so if you haven’t sent your work in yet, please do so as soon as possible. If you are having trouble getting work finished and sent off in time, please don’t worry. Just send me an email and I’ll do what I can to help out. My email is I really want everyone who wants to be involved to have their work shown, so don’t feel that you have run out of time and should give up.


If you have already sent work in, I will email you to confirm delivery in due course, and thank you very much for getting involved.

I really enjoyed giving workshops at various locations, and I feel like I have learnt so much from doing them. People really seem to connect with the project and I hope that I have inspired people to spread their creative cross-stitch wings. Now that the finished work is coming in, it’s so wonderful to see how people have adapted the pattern to make it their own. Every piece of work is so individual, it’s going to be a great exhibition! Please keep checking my website for exhibition information and dates.

My own work still has a way to go, but I’m generally happy with my progress. Here’s how it’s looking at the start of September.
