Lucky again

Last Sunday was another lucky day....impromptu stitching with friends!  Here are some of the sights.  Teresa and Barb both have these Gingher scissors which I love!  They remind me of the styles of the early 1970's!  I forgot the name of them....I am sure someone can chime in with that.  Note that they have matching scissor fobs!!!


Above is Karin's work on the pieces of Casting a Spell by BBD.  Love!

Pat needed a consultation regarding fib/fab for a sampler project she is about to embark on.  This is a favorite group activity.

We gave Teresa a lot of guff and teasing about her meticulous arrangement of her class materials for the Dear Jane quilt.  She admits that organizing the pattern was at least half the fun of the project!!!  Click HERE for information about this quilt. 

Karin has many amazing and breathtaking framed pieces of her stitching.  This is one fine example of beautiful stitching by Karin and beautiful framing by Jill Rensel.  This is a Carriage House Samplings chart.

Above is one of my thousands of works in progress.  I am loving this stitch!!!!

Above is Linda's progress on the current BBD Loose Feathers chart, Summer.  Gorgeous!
Patti is working on this amazing Birds of a Feather chart.  I can't remember the name; but it is so cool.  It is a reindeer sampler.  I think I might have to hop on her bandwagon.

Sorry about the poor picture quality....but I still had to post this picture even though it did not really turn out that well.  This is Karin's Mary Peacock sampler which hangs in her entryway.  Can you imagine walking in the door to be greeted by this masterpiece on a daily basis!  I would just go out and come in all day!  This is one of the most beautiful samplers ever on the Planet Earth!   And I am one of the luckiest people on the planet to have such wonderful stitching friends!  Lucky again!!!

Love the stitch in recaps! I think I remember seeing Karin's Dutch Sampler in person. Jill really did a fantastic job...look at that matting! Her Mary P. is stunning!

Such great projects from everyone!

What a fun day that was- and thanks to Karin for hosting it! Thank you for posting the pic of my reindeer (Winter Sampler)- and it's such fun to see what your lens captures- even though I was there, there are always a few surprises! Have a great day!
