Game of Thrones...

As promised if a bit are a few close up images of my bird. Well, to be completely honest, I didn't design it but I did have free reign with the stitches and the colours from the threads they supplied... I still call it "my bird" all the same. I'm sure that'll be ok or at least I hope it will be...!
It is situated above the White Walker's head on The Hardhome Embroidery, named after the huge battle from series 5 of Game of Thrones.

 I've really been a bit slack on the blogging front, I completely missed the post I should have done about the Knitting and stitching Show which came to Edinburgh at the end of April. I fair enjoyed it by the way, managed to find lots of things to buy, mostly stuff I had to have but didn't really need...familiar?
Anyway, what I should have said was that I had a piece of work selected to be on show at the Edge - textile artists scotland stand. I was delighted that it was chosen for the exhibition and have had lots of lovely comments about it.
Here are a few images.

I'm only showing a little at the moment as it is destined to go on to the Edge exhibition in Edinburgh, a must see if you are interested in textiles, even if you're not it'll be a great exhibition.
I'll give more details later but it's on at 
Edinburgh Palette, St Margaret's House, London Road 
from Saturday 2nd July to Saturday 23rd July.
Bye for now.
