Last night was a special Saturday Night edition of stitching with the gals. As always, it was inspiring and revelatory. I became enraptured with Karin's Sajou embroidery scissors. Above is her Eiffel Tower pair.
(Blogger did not comply with my order of pictures so things are kind of out of alignment here for storytelling purposes!)
Above is Pat's progress on her current work, Frances F. Sampler by Sheepish Antiques. As a group we are currently having a Sheepish Antiques love fest.
Okay, here are the Sajou scissors I really, really, really want (either these or the Mother of Pearl handled pair). Some women want diamond necklaces or Coach purses......(well, I want those too, but you know what I mean), but I really want these scissors. I can't explain it. I know they are expensive and no one needs expensive scissors. I guess it is like a fancy watch. It just feels luxurious. I am in talks with Santa about these scissors.
Nancy is working on this fabulous Lizzie Kate piece! She is almost done.
Marcia is stitching this Lizzie Kate for her daughter. What a wonderful gift!
Linda is doing this BBD from the current issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. Another must stitch to add to the list.
Linda M. is doing this really cool and very different Three Faces of Eve by Prairie Moon. Can't wait to see the whole piece done. Very arty!
Karin had a finish last night!!!!! This is simply stunning!
See what I mean about out of order pictures? Here is a detail of Nancy's WIP. I love, love, love Mr. Turkey!
Carolyn continues to work on her Autumn Cross. Words cannot convey how beautiful this is. Another one I hope to see in its final stage.
Barb brought this eye candy to show us. That frame!!! The stitching! The design! Yikes, this is just dandy!!!! It is by Courtney Collection.
Here is one of Barb's current WIPs. Very cool.
Above is a finish....by me!!!!! I purchased this chart last Saturday and had it finished by the next Friday night!!!!! It was so much fun to stitch. It is by Notforgotten Farms. My color guru, Pat, did a thread change because I was not a fan of the colors as called for. I stitched it on 36 count Edinborough Ivory which is now high, high, high on my list of fabric. It was just perfect to work with. I love it so much I want to marry it. Yes, it has me downright giddy and acting like a 6 year old!!!!
Jon Lee was working on Patriotic Landscape by Homespun Elegance. She told me that they are her favorite designers. I love to know someone else's favorite designer.
