One Stitch at a Time

embroidery 1 002 2

Wonderful Amy invited several gals over to her house to begin/work on embroidered samplers.  Hope, Lia, Lorraine, Pam, Claudine and I were all happy to oblige.  After treating us to a lovely lunch featuring her dad’s yummy chicken salad, treasures brought to share were sorted through and ideas were discussed.  Amy and her mom were kind enough to demonstrate several embroidery stitches, others we just sort of made up or looked at pictures and figured out.  It was relaxing, rejuvenating, and felt oh so right to spend the day with these highly creative individuals.

I brought an old piece of linen from my stash to stitch on, and had  such fun appliqueing old bits of lace, crocheted flowers and neat buttons onto it,  then embroidering around them.  This project is in the very beginning stages, and it will be interesting to see just how it develops.



Thanks once again Amy for allowing me to be part of this inspiring gathering.

    You got to spend the day with cream of the crop…the most creative gene pool known in existence?????!!!!
    Why oh why am I stuck here in Louisiana with no one to play with? No one making me some yummy chicken salad? No one teaching me how to make beautiful stitches like the pros?

    I am jealous…but I’m so happy for you. What a wonderful day you must have had. I can ‘read’ your excitement. Maybe now you can teach me those stitches!!!
