SOTM Progress

Standard

I came home on Saturday and finished stitching the January and February installments…Although I’ve been feeling some regret at using colors similar to one of the provided color ways, especially after seeing what some of the other pieces look like, now that I’ve got more stitched, I’m really happy with how mine is looking!

2019 February SOTM

Standard

Hi Everyone —

This year, NJNA SOTM Group has elected to do the ANG SOTM Mystery Project.  Thirteen of us gathered on February 9 to stitch this month’s installment.  This is quite exciting as the directions allow quite a bit of leeway even within a given colorway.  A number of us have deviated from the designers’ colorways so that’s exciting too!

Four of us are up to date after Saturday:

A few of us are just starting and are in different states of progress:

Dee hit a major milestone on “A Different View” by completing her last hexagon.  Now onto the small squares and beads!

Hexagons Complete!  Beautiful!

Diane is finishing up the border on Autumn Kaleidoscope by Lorene Salt.

Almost done!  Diane expects to be able to start the Mystery next month!

It was a bright, sunny day so we had plenty of light to stitch by.  Thanks to all who brought the wonderful assortments of dessert!

Cheers, Rosie

January 2019 SOTM Complete!

Standard

Hi Everyone —

The NJNA SOTM group is doing the ANG SOTM which is a Mystery!  I chose my own colors and just finished stitching the first installment.  It is great fun to do these fancy stitches — even if it took me three aborted attempts to get the correct thread length on the crescents.

I also want to say that using two strands of floss on the circular Amadeus was a true challenge to my thread-laying ability!  But only one aborted attempt on the thread length, but three re-stitches because of missed holes!

Can’t wait to see what February brings!

Cheers, Rosie
