Sunday Stitching

Had a brilliant day yesterday; Glenda, Jan and I headed up the highway to Millrose Cottage for a class with Liz.

And what would we be doing, you ask? Experimenting with wooly bits!! And under Liz’s guidance, completing this Sue Spargo project over the course of 2013…

…there were a mountain of these to help with brain activity!…

20130225-164106.jpg…even the rubbish bags were decorative!…

20130225-164343.jpg…and a clever sign to aid students and shoppers alike (the aqua you can see in the background is our border wool….how gorgeous is that??!!)…

20130225-165022.jpgThere was plenty of eye candy from other students….

As well as the class book, I also picked up a copy of Sue Spargo’s new stitching book…

20130225-165216.jpg…which is clearly set out, with easily understood and instructive words and diagrams….

20130225-165352.jpgAt the end of the day, I’d achieved this much, having had a play with Pekinese stitch, and loving it!….

Happy stitching

    You will have so much fun, I have been part of 2 Sue Spargo BOM. Sue’s way of combining different stitches she uses for the embellishment of the pattern pieces is wonderful. Her stitch book is one of the best I have seen, I love it. The “chocolate tree” looks wonderful.
