November Stitch-In

Some new pieces by Barbara M-C
Just three of us for the November Stitch-In...Barbara, Peggy and me. But, as always, great discussion and sharing...and stitching!

Barbara is working on a new series of hoop pieces to hang on her pink wall. These are a combination of gelatin printing and block printing on a sheer fabric. Barbara backed them on white cotton and is starting to stitch details.

Peggy brought in a number of small pieces that she printed and is now adding stitched details. These will either be turned into individual pieces or stitched together into a larger wall hanging. She also brought in two new stitch books. The book, From Art to Stitch by Janet Edmonds looked interesting. The author creates stitched works inspired by famous modern painters.

I brought in some of my resist rubbing and stitched mats. I started hemming the one that is the featured project in this month's Julie B Booth Surface Design News (Issue #31).

Ann is out west visiting family. She'll be heading to Texas to visit with her granddaughter and foster great grandchildren. She sent me some photos today to share. She's just about finished with Buffalo Boy (click here to read about him). Isn't he great! I also love that his cape is stitched with encouraging words. Ann says that these are the qualities symbolized by the buffalo.

We had a extra special treat today...Barbara brought along the French embroidery floss and books that she used to sell in her wonderful little shop in London. She now sells some of these items online.
Peggy and I dove into the basket of many colors! Thanks Barbara for bringing them to the meeting and also for selling them for such a sweet price!

Looking forward to next month's Stitch-In!
