Stiching with Others

Last week at stitching we were pondering another group project and Barb came up with a brilliant idea. Find a chart that is not to big and that can be done in one color thread. Then, we each get the chart and each pick a different thread color. Everyone stitches up their project and then we photograph them all together to see what fab colors everyone has chosen!!! Brilliant, right??

I must say that stitching with a group of people is so inspiring and so much fun!

The chart we chose is Quaker Aux Clefs by Jardin Prive (pictured above). I am not sure what thread color I will pick. I think we are aiming for everyone to use Belle Soie Silk Floss.

It will surely be fun to look through all of the silks to pick a color! Will keep you posted.

What a great idea and everyone can pick their favorite color!

Are you going to the cording class next week? I'm certainly planning on it and hope to meet you:))))

Sounds like such fun! Can't wait to see what color you pick -- and to see the results too!

Fun!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait for my chart and decisions, decisions on fabric & thread. Like I told you I won't stitch the keys but my initials.

What a neat idea! I can't wait to see what colors you'll choose--and hope you'll post the other people's samplers, too!

Love the little pattern you've chosen! Now I think I need to add it to my stash so I can stitch it too. I'll be watching to see what everyone picks.

I like this -- just looking at the two you show indicates a remarkable difference. Getting them together will be wonderful. Why, it will be downright "expantiv" (which is my verification word!
