Embroiderers Guild Exhibition

"Jubilation" is the title of the Embroiderers Guild of Victoria's 50th Birthday Exhibition. Today I visited with a friend from interstate and we were blown away by the amazing detail of some of the embroideries. Gold work, hardanger, crewel, felting, patch working - there is plenty of eye candy if you can get there to see it. The Exhibition finishes on 26th September.

This year's Open Challenge theme was "50". Some of the embroideries had 50 flowers, or 50 buttons, or 50 stitches. Mine is a 50 symbol, surrounded by 50 Swarovski crystals.

This necklace is another piece which I have entered into the Exhibition. It is part of my series of Triangle works.
