Show and Tell June 2012

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:

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:

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:

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:

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)
