Outdoor stitching in Wellington is a very rare treat! But after yet another STINKING hot day, it's finally cooled down enough for me to get stuck into some stitching and it's so lovely.

I'm busy sampling for an NZ Embroiderers' Conference 2018 exhibition entry. The contemporary embroidery section theme is 'Hardcore' and I have way too many ideas! I can see a whole series developing out of this work. #hardcoreembroidery

Who likes my new coffee mug I got from the Royal School of Needlework shop?! Haha!

Blackwork embroidery... HIX style!
Thanks for the great class today @dixeysoul and for dinner on Friday. I'm thoroughly inspired. 😁

We've got a FREE TALK tomorrow night if you're in search of some inspiration! Seeing @dixeysoul speak to the Wellington Embroiderers Guild a few years ago really inspired me to get into embroidery and specifically to start my 100 Days embroidery project. If you're free tomorrow night you should definitely come along to @nancysstitchstudio at 7pm and try not to drool all over Jo's beautiful stitching! 😁

Sometimes when class finishes and you haven't finished the mend, you just gotta wear it home half done coz it's soo wet & cold!

So you know how you can't take scissors on a plane with you... I have a fabulous Clover thread cutter pendant that you can wear on a necklace and take on board but do you think I could find it yesterday? ... No. Haha. So this is the less stylish version of a thread cutter pendant... Dental floss!

I'm teaching a couple of short Modern Mending classes today for the Wellington Embroiderers' Solstice day. This morning's class were having a great time experimenting! We've had yummy soup and treats for lunch and now I'm setting up for another session.

Even though I decided not to participate in the 100 Days Challenge this year I'm still doing a little bit of stitching every day.
I miss it when I can't do any! It's like a daily meditation or excersise routine. A habit that helps me unwind.

'Stitch in' night at Wellington Embroiderers' Guild is always lovely. Chatting and stitching... Can't complain.

Seeing as it's Fashion Revolution week I've been working on some inspirational samples for my Modern Mending class. I've been dying to find some time to knit something with my lovely @spinningayarnnz silk/merino but turns out it is really lovely to stitch with as well!

Didn't make it to our first mending meetup last Thursday? Well lucky you On the Mend is every second Thursday of the month so mark your calendars for our next one on May 11th. We thank @wgtncc for their support.

In the meantime, follow @hix_girl , who was our first guest mender and a fashion textile artist, to keep up to date with what she's doing. She also teaches several classes at @nancysstitchstudio.

I'm having the best day at the Mana Embroiderers' workday! I've never been able to attend a workday before and it's so HIXciting! Lots of people stitching, chatting, drinking tea. There's stalls to buy delicious textile things, lots of show and tell, as well as spot prizes! Yay!

Big thanks to the Kapiti Embroiderers' Guild for having me speak at their meeting on Wed night. It was so much fun as always! Making lots of new stitchy friends :-) #HIX #HIXembroidery #HIXspeaking #HIXtalk #slowstitch #relaxation #WEG #wellingtonembroiderersguild #stitching #metamorphostitch #KapitiEmbroiderersGuild #KEG

Don't ya just love putting threads together for a new project!
Especially when you've got a big tub of second hand threads to hunt through. It's like digging for treasure!
