We had a marvellous Show and Tell this month, absolutely full of beautiful pieces that members had been working on during the month:
Last month's stitches were woven webs and wheels, and several members brought their samplers and explorations to share:
Margaret hosted a felt making mini workshop earlier in the month, and these lovely landscapes were produced on the day:
Janet W designed this interesting sampler about Alvechurch, which she has stitched with other embroiderers from her Church. It will be given to a group who are coming over on an exchange from Peru:
Angela has finished her lovely embroidery from the Polish Rhapsody day school, and turned it into a purse:
Margaret has been experimenting with free machine embroidery on scrim, and has made these lovely light and airy pieces:
Janet M brought in this beautiful cross stitch - a baby bib as a gift. She's chosen a beautiful selection of animals:
Margaret also hosted a silk painting workshop, where members were asked to create a picture, and dye a beautiful scarf.
This is Linda's giraffe picture:
And her silk scarf:
Two members brought back their finished pennants - we're really looking forward to seeing them all joined together and strung up at our Christmas party this year:
One member brought these two beautiful embroideries, worked in lovely bright colours using mostly buttonhole stitch. The effect is stunning:
Margaret also made this brilliant picture of Ironbridge, which she has machine embroidered:
If you've been working on a project over the past month please bring it along to next month's session - we'd love to see it!
(If I've not attributed/misattributed your project, please leave me a comment with the details and I'll fix it)
