The New Embroidery Group

I went to see an embroidery exhibition called “Threading our way: a retrospective”. I saw a hanging in the exhibition, which included a small square that I made with the group 10 years ago! I stitched the word “peace” in Arabic. I forget about it and it was a nice memory to remember!

Workshops

Last month I attended two workshops. One about creative French knitting, demonstrated by a student who is doing a Master’s degree in Design.

The second workshop was about Islamic art and simple printing.

1000 crochet squares

After making 1000 crochet squares of different colours I made this king size bed blanket from 676 squares. The remaining pieces will be used for a future project!
