Today marked the start of my first week at the Pilatushaus in Oberammergau. I will be demonstrating goldwork embroidery every day from 13:00 till 18:00 hours until coming Sunday. If you are in the area, do come in as I would love to meet you! For those of you living too far away, here are some pictures of my snug corner on the first floor.
It is also the first time I am actually selling some of my work: embroidered necklaces. AND: I sold one within the first hour. Sitting here behind my laptop with a very big grin on my face :).
My corner is rather quiet with lots of good natural day light, but no direct sunlight. Perfect for some goldwork stitching. Although, is it goldwork? Today I was told that this particular piece is actually needlepoint. Don't you love these self-proclaimed needlework experts? This lady gave me a very good chuckle. Especially as, after I explained to her what type of embroidery this is, she maintained that it looks just like needlepoint. Me and Saint Laurence are still chuckling!
