Some friends and I have started up a sew-a-long loosely following Sue Spargo’s embroidery book entitled Creative Stitching. We’ve met once to get started and lay the groundwork. It’ll be a rather unstructured endeavor. We will each have our own project to stitch on; none of which is similar to the others. Most will involve applique; some in sampler form and some not. We’re going to start at the beginning and work through all the stitches and see where it takes us. The first stitch is the family of running stitches.
Mine is going to be another trip wall hanging. This one commemorates a snorkeling trip at the Cayman Islands. So far all I’ve got is the water and bottom of the sea. This is a cropped shot to show the stitches closer up.
If any of my readers have the book and want to join us, please comment and post a link to pictures of your work.
