Here we go!!

Well, I've taken the plunge!! I've been reading other people's blogs for ages, and I thought it was about time I started one of my own.

The aim is to chart my (painfully slow) progress through C&G "Exploring Embroidery", which I am doing as distance learning with Opus School of Stitch Textiles. I'm currently two-thirds of the way through Module 3 -"Nature's coverings". All about texture.

Over the next few days, I shall record and post some of the stuff I have done in this module, that's if I can navigate my way through the site! I'm only a couple of rungs above computer illiterate.

Having said that I am also doing "Creative Computing into Stitched Textiles" with Hazel Credland, and, apart from being really interesting, its definitely improving my computer skills generally. The course explores using Paintshop Pro as a design tool.
