Tui Class with Dianne Fussell

On the 14th July WQC had Dianne Fussell come and teach her wonderful Tui Class.
"Theres  Tui's in my Garden 2" by Dianne
This is normally a 2 day class but we only had one day
so there was a lot to learn.  We started on the big Tui.
 Dianne's sample
 One of the class members' Tui so far.
Dianne supplied a photo of the Tui on backing and 
then it was stitch lots & lots over the Tui with in free motion
with beautiful rayon threads.
A tui cut out  ready to go on wallhanging. 
 The feet get stitched once in place.
A second day would be great as there was only time to do the tui.
Thankyou Dianne.  It was a great day.
Thanks to Maureen for keeping us supplied with refreshments
