August Stitch-In

We had quite a variety of projects at our stitch-in.

Darlene V. stitched more on her birches project. Here is information from our May stitch-in. This is cross stitch using over-dyed thread.

 Georgette and Helen were both working on bracelets from a pilot project by Carolyn Sherman. This is a beading project.

 Lydia was getting started on "Corn-elia." This canvas project is being taught by the Inland Empire EGA chapter.

 This is "Samurai Warrior" by Judy Souliotis, stitched up by Jeannie T.  She's adding the fun detail now. This is another canvas project.

 More "Bargello Arrows" by Pam R. You can get a peek at more information about this here. 
You can just get a glimpse of Denise M. completed version of this same project in the back. This is a bargello stitch on canvas.

Here is a project from our own chapter. Mary Lee is stitching up the basket band from our Garden of Delights in a Basket series. This is bargello or florentine stitch on an evenweave fabric. Other techniques will also be on the band.

Here is "1Corinthians Wedding Sampler" from Stoney Creek being stitched by Ruth P. This is counted cross stitch. It's stitched with plain DMC floss and lots of blending filament.

Denise M. was working on a doodle cloth for a mitered corner technique she's learning through her whitework group. She was at the early basting stage and I guess my camera was bored and didn't bother to get the picture! Sorry Denise. It'll be beautiful when it's done. For more on Denise's whitework, just go back to the last post.

It's so much fun seeing everyone's projects and different techniques. We'd love to see your work too. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month at Ginger's Quilt Shop in Upland, California from 10-2. Our next stitch-in will be September 26. Again, thank you to Ginger for allowing us to meet at her shop.
