May 12, 2007
Okay so I haven't quite mastered the art of putting pictures on my blog in an organized manner.
Anyway, the 4 Celtic Banners pictured were the inspiration for the 3 banners pictured to the left. The 4 belong to Dani, Christin, Carmen and Colleen (not necessarily in that order) and were here for all to admire at last August's little retreat we hold here at my place.
The three banners are being held by Beatrice, Kathy and Barb and are almost finished after a 30 week stitch along.
This next lot of smiling faces belong to some of the Thursday stitchers and don't they do great work? Adriana is on the left holding up a fairy she is stitching from a recent magazine. Olive is holding up a blank hoop because I caught her on a day when she was just about to begin a new project. Judie is displaying her Sitchworks piece called Good Night Sleep Tight, affectionately known as Cows in Blankets.
Here is progress on Epiphyllum #2. I am very encouraged by how it is coming along and I actually think I have the hardest portions finished. All that remains is another yellow/orange flower and another large leaf. The main flower was the most challenging since it contains a myriad of soft colours which did not seem like anything except tiny blobs of colour ... that is until you step back and see the big picture. Marc is an amazing designer.
There are more Thursday stitchers but we had only a small turnout this past week. I will take pics of the others and their projects as the weeks progress.
