Distant stitch embroidery diploma course-chapter one

Continuing with my sketching,I thought I would try noses and lips.

Not so easy to do, but I have bought the book on the reading list about drawing on the right side of the brain,I'll show some of my efforts later.
Quite pleased with how this turned out.

Distant stitch embroidery diploma corse-chapter one.
I decided I needed to review my drawing skills ,so I initially started following a you tube tutorial which is the result  top right. Then I drew my partner eye ,on the left and at the bottom an eye from a woman in a magazine.
My partner being my muse!

Here are some of the items I designed and made for part one: a waistcoat based on William morris designs and a bag based on the pattern made in a ploughed field.

So a little about me, I live in Herefordshire , work as a children's community nurse and have two children who are really adults now. I did my part one city and guilds 20years ago with jean mobbs-Webb , who was a very inspiring tutor. I miss college days and hence I have enrolled on the diploma course with distant stitch as I would like to develop my own style and miss designing.
I have chosen the body as my research theme and have attended life drawing classes in the past. However I would like to express the body through stitch.
