I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

The Best of Both Worlds

Hey Blog Buddies,

This past weekend, Homewood Embroiderers Guild participated in the Pieces & Patches Quilt Guild Show--the best of both worlds--and what fun everyone had!  The following are a very small portion of the photos I took on Sunday...

There's a lot going on in this photo--so many beautiful pieces!
There's an intricate Japanese embroidery piece
in the upper left of this photo.
For much better photos of that piece, go here.
The predominantly pink bargello piece (far right)
will be one of our class projects next year.
And if you look closely just under the top right piece...
is it Betty?   No!  It's her long lost twin.
Betty (not pictured) was there, too.  It was a joyful reunion!

A close-up of the large, pink canvaswork flower.

Our Christmas table.
(Sorry for the glare of the glass.)
The large Emie Bishop hardanger design on dark green linen
with the red mat is something I've had
kitted up for over ten years now.
Must put it on on my to-stitch list next year!
(Yes, I've had a 2013 to-stitch list for quite some time now...)

This holiday cone done on canvas is an eye-catcher.
It was started by one of our members who recently passed away,
and finished by one of our current members.

This beautiful cross stitch piece is quite large (30" x 20"?)
The hummingbirds and butterflies are over one!

Lot's to see here, as well.
cross stitch, Hardanger, Sashiko embroidery, temari balls,
a couple of specialty stitch samplers, and we even have our own quilt!

Here's a close-up of the beautiful Chatelaine piece.

Some quilting...

Needless to say,
this handful of photos does not do this combined exhibit justice!

The Pieces & Patches Quilt Guild
put on a wonderful display of quilts and
were very gracious in allowing us
to be included in their show.
I believe that the collaboration
was beneficial to both groups.

Hope you had as much fun as I had this weekend!
Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful work, so inspirational. And as I am a bit behind on reading the blog - thank you Molly for picking my name, the stitching projects will be high on my list to start (I'm hoping for a long, cold and blustery winter!!) - so exciting!
