Stitching at Patti's


Last Saturday our wonderful group gathered at Patti's house for a Saturday Stitch-a-thon.  As you can see Patti is decorated for Spring and Easter.....even if our weather is still in the winter phase. 


But before I show you all of the stitching that went on I need to shout out a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped me find and fix my mistake on the La D Da My Sister's Garden.   I am so thankful for all of your eagle eyes!!!!!!!!  I frogged the problem area and then my friend Karin went over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything was correct.  I am back to stitching on it.  Phew!!!

Pat finished the beautiful Louisa Bell sampler, but unfortunately I took a picture of the amazing finish while it was on top of a Vera bag so that it showing through.  You get the idea though.....Amazing Piece!!!!!!    This was part of a Wednesday stitch a long on Instagram.  I wonder what they will pick next.  I want to join!!!  I love to be part of groups.

 Here is Brenda's framed finish of Harriette Coe.  This is a total masterpiece!!!!  

One of Patti's current stitching projects is this one from Kathy Barrick.  I LOVE IT!!!!!!  I am putting this on my list to work on starting next October.  Love!
Kellie finished Proper Sisters School of Needlework by Pineberry Lane!!!  This is also a most fabulous design!!!

Patti's Dad was an artist and had many mediums.  He made these beautiful eggs!!!!  So stunning and so wonderful that Patti can display them every Spring.  

 I had some ornaments finished so I brought them for show and tell.  It is always fun to have people who really appreciate "this stuff" look at them and ooh and ahh!



 I am really loving flat folds!!!!!

 Karin was working on this new design from La D Da.  She was using Sanguine by Weeks Dye Works with wool thread.  The color below is a bit orange because of the flash.  The color above is more true.  It was so cool and gorgeous and fun.

Guess what?  This was her progress on Saturday.  She is now done with the project on Monday!!!!!  Super smoking needle!

Brenda and Linda are also stitching on Louisa Bell.  So fun!!!

Kellie started with no Vera Bradley when we all met.  She is coming right along.  This is part of her current pile of VB!!!! We always seem to need more. 

 Linda and Karin are going to stitch this sampler by The Traveling Stitcher.  Very colorful and I have a feeling it going to be one I will want to do!!!

We were also all agog over The Red Deer Sampler.  So cool!

Another fabulous day of stitching and laughing and friendship is in the books.  Thanks Patti!!!!!

Love your picture filled posts and seeing everyone's beautiful work. Karin's La D Da rabbit will have me jumping to my online LNS as soon as I finish this comment. I, too, love Vera Bradley. I would love to see a post sometime on which pieces your stitching group uses most for stitching organization.
