2016 SOTM

December SOTM

Standard

Hi Everyone —

I think December is my favorite SOTM month since we end the year with stitching and a pot-luck luncheon!  We had appetizers, salads, soups, casseroles, fruit, and (of course) dessert!  What a wonderful tradition!

In addition to stitching, December is the month where we start to discuss our plans for next year.  I think I’ll be continuing on Ruby Razzle Dazzle again, but with all of the wonderful suggestions, I may get sucked into something new!  HA!

Here’s our progress on this year’s ANG project:

Don’t these look wonderful?  Kudos to all for the great progress!

Happy New Year to all!

Cheers, Rosie

The Real SOTM!

Standard

Hi Everyone —

With so many people away this month and the last two posts about Alternative SOTMs and Alternative Seminars, I felt the need to represent the real, true NJNA SOTM.  Wish you were here!

Last Saturday, seven of us met at Sue’s house for stitching and conversation.  Five of us are working on the ANG SOTM by Susan Hoekstra and two of us are working on 2014 and 2015 SOTM projects.  (The only exception to attending and NOT working on the current project is if you are working on an older SOTM project!)

So here are the results at the end of the day:

Clockwise from the top:  Nancy W, Barbara L, Joan, Sue C, and Carol.

Rosie’s “Razzle Dazzle” on the left and Dee’s “A Different View” on the right.  Slow but steady progress!

Aren’t all the color choices awesome?  A good time was had by all!

Alternative SOTM

Although I am missing the actual get-together today for this month’s SOTM, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on the piece.

I was somewhat surprised when I saw the instructions — “daisies” seem pretty far afield from the all the other very geometric stitches. And I have to say, I’m not sure that I like them. And I admit to finding them pretty boring to stitch. But I’ve finished two sides, and here they are:
