well done emma

this week i went to my daughter emma's graduation from the royal school of needlework.
it was held at hampton court palace, where she has been working and studying for the last 3 years.

i made myself a felted flower corsage to wear. i was very pleased with it. these flowers do not take long using the clover needle felting tool and moulds. i used 2 colours of fetlz it wool tops with some texture yarn threads incorperated in the felting. it is finished with a big shiney button.
i made emma a graduation card with some of her work on. the bottom picture is a self portrait of her that i made into a rubber stamp and coloured in with sakura pens. the main picture is silk shading with painted lettering.

the apprentices were presented with their certificates by zandra rhodes. she was lovely, wonderfully wacky and genuinly interested in all their work.
