Last month I officially joined the Wellington Embroiderers Guild! Sarah Hooker was the speaker and seeing as I used to work with Sarah at Nancy's it was a lovely trip down memory lane for me. Especially when she pulled out this collection of 4" embroidered blocks that we (Nancy's staff) gave to her as a leaving pressy. Including one that I stitched!
Looking forward to tonights meeting with speaker Clare Regnault who is the senior curator of NZ History & Culture at Te Papa.

Scored some cute little wooden thread holders. I love everything wood!

Just bound a hoop with some cotton tape I found lying around... A strip of 'Anna Hicks' name labels. Haha! At least everyone will know who's hoop it is!

HIXciting news from the HIX workroom... We bought our first house!! Wooo! Suddenly really excited to hang the one and only cross stitch I ever completed that says 'Home is where the ❤️ is." :-)

Pulling out old samples from my uni work today and working on developing some new class ideas. 😀 Exciting things in the pipeline!

A stitch a day keeps the doctor away!
Still not finished but my progress so far. #100daysproject #HIXembroidery #embroideryinstaguild #WEG #wellingtonembroiderersguild #myhappyplace

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!

HIXperimenting going well so far! Chunky peahole hemstitch on handdyed fabric.

Essential road trip crafting tools... the Needle Nanny! My new fav gadget! So handy to keep track of your snips and needles in the car. Is everyone else finishing Xmas pressys on the way like me? Haha!

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.

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!

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!

My ORT's jar after 10 months! Preeeeety!
I'm wondering what would happen if I poured clear cast resin into it in the future... might look cool. #turningwasteintoart .

I had to make a tiny needlebook to match my stitching! Haha!
After @nancysstitchstudio gave me one of the tiny hand-embroidered needlebooks that came in the goodie bags at ANZEG Embroidery Conference 2016, I decided it was actually really helpful having a tiny needlebook in with every project!

My first foray into complicated counted embroidery work... A class with the talented Yvette Stanton (@vettycreations) on Sardinian Knotted Embroidery. HIXciting!
We've gone straight into the scary stuff... snipping and drawing out threads. Wish me luck!
