And This Is What We Stitched

I told you all about the Sisters In Stitches' wonderful stitching weekend, and today I'll show you what we were working on.  The things that we stitch are as varied as we are! 
Thea is stitching Drawn Thread's "Easter Eggs".  She accomplished a lot during the weekend!
Laurie picked a pretty color to stitch the Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler
Rosewood Manor's Bucklebury Sampler is being stitched by Maggie
Pat started a new project.  What do you think this "would be"?  Perhaps a pretty sampler?
An original design being stitched by Sheila.  The inspiration was from a cut glass dish.
Trish is stitching small motifs on ultra fine plastic canvas. 
I'm stitching LHN's Song of the Seasons.  Finally finished part 2.

See what I mean about the different types of stitching we do?  The other thing I noticed is how we stitch.  Some of us use q-snaps, a couple of us love hoops and we have two in our group who always stitch in-hand.  This is what makes stitching with friends so interesting.  Plus, you see charts, threads, stitching supplies and finishing methods that you might not have seen before. 

We're a lucky group -- lucky to have each other as stitching friends and lucky to have a wonderful place to meet every month for a full day of relaxing stitching.


  1. You're so right, such a diverse group of stitchers but united in love of stitching. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing all these pretty stitches!!!! I know you girls had so much fun~~~ stitching friends are the best!!!

  3. Lots of beautiful stitching going on there! Thanks for sharing all the lovely photos :)

  4. You certainly are a varied group, but all very talented in your own way!
    I am particularly intrigued by Sheila's design. Will you show more photos as she progresses please?

  5. The show and tell is always a great part of each get-together, isn't it?

  6. Lots of inspiration, lots of fresh ideas in your stitching group.
