The day was dreary but it was perfect for stitching since no one felt guilty about not being out in the garden. So 15 stitchers gathered again to work on our Stitch-of-the-Month pieces.
As always, we enjoyed swapping hints about stitching (several of us made the same counting mistake) and a lot of discussion about the colors we are using. Most of us are stitching on Lorene Salt’s Autumn Kaleidoscope but a few are finishing up Tony Minieri’s Stars for the New Millennium. What fun to see the results of our monthly stitching.
We also celebrated Mally’s and Rosie’s birthdays so we had extra dessert! Happy Birthday to both of you!
Some of our stitchers had to leave early so not everyone is in the group photo. And I found out when editing the photos that the white surface produced shadows. So I apologize for the photos; I’ll try to figure out a better way to display all the wonderful canvases.
Sue R (left) is stitching her own colorway; Janet (right) is stitching the original colorway on beige canvas but is making some adjustments on individual elements.
Nancy (top left) and Mally (top right) are both stitching the original colorway. Joan (bottom) is stitching a blue colorway from Lorene.
Diane (top row left) and Amy (bottom row right) started with the original colorway and then substituted colors. Sylvia (top row right), Jill (bottom row middle) and Janice, Rosie, and Sue C (middle row left to right) all are stitching their own colorways. Linda (bottom row left) is stitching the original colorway.
Barbara and Margaret are both working on Stars for the New Millennium. Barbara is stitching in the Kaleidoscope colorway and Margaret’s is the Egyptian Nights colorway.
