Coral Stitch just the start

This 2010 has been quite the year of creativity in our studio.

The courses throughout this year were wonderful with new faces and wonderful stories along the way.  Unfortunately I have not been able to spend much time on my computer as our business designed a new website.  Now that it is complete, I will have more time to share our moments in Atelier Gwendolyne this year.

For now here's one of my favourite stitches I like using when creating bold embroidery lines with wool 4 ply yarns. Here in the photo I stitched with Anchor's cotton Embroidery Floss on thick natural linen.

Life's Energies

This photo collage I put together of THE ELEMENTS course, celebrates our time together throughout this 2010 in Atelier Gwendolyne.

In creating this I discovered we were totally inspired from life's energies and their forms. Beings that could fly like birds, butterflies and even mythological dragons, those that could swim, like fish those that stood in one place, like trees and Mother Nature as a sprite, to remind us all to care for the preciousness of life.

Our time together was rich with texture and our unfolding days of the week brought many an discussion. Thanks everyone for enriching this studio in 2010!
