Our intrepid group of stitchers is continuing to make progress on the various Stitch-of-the-Month projects for 2021. With meeting restrictions still in place, we again met on Zoom to catch up with each other and to report on stitching.
Stratigraphy, the ANG 2021 Stitch-of-the-Month project, continues to intrigue the group, even those who are not stitching that project this year. A new stitch will be introduced each month and then will be combined with previous months’ stitches to create the layers.
Brenda is using colors in one of the bathrooms in her house as inspiration for her colors.
The Grand Canyon is Robin’s inspiration.
Rosie chose a USGS theme.
Janet is one of our turbostitchers, so she has already completed Asymmetrical Copper, which she also squared off to turn it into Symmetrical Copper.
Barbara is making great progress on Petite Arabesque.
A few group members decided to work on past SOTM projects, either as new starts or to finish projects that were hibernating!
Sylvia chose A Different View by Kurdy Biggs of Threedles NeedleArt Desgins, which was the NJNA SOTM in 2014. The stitching on black canvas is just stunning!
Holly is working on Star by Kathy Rees, ANG’s and NJNA’s SOTM from 2020. She is using threads from her stash.
Tina realized she had miscounted and put aside Feuilles D’Ananas by Susan Hoekstra (ANG’s and NJNA’s 2016 SOTM). She’s corrected her mistake and will use this year to finish the project.
Nancy and Linda both chose Ruby Razzle Dazzle by Ann Strite-Kurz (NJNA’s 2015 SOTM) for their 2021 projects. Nancy admitted that she found the canvas easily enough but then couldn’t find the threads. She finally realized that she had put them all back into her stash! Fortunately she was able to recover them all.
I’m looking forward to seeing more progress in March!
Stay well and happy stitching!
