Looking over Shoulders

One of the best things about writing the blog is that I get to look over everyone’s shoulders to see their work in progress.

Here’s a sampler of the work in progress in the evening group over the last 3 weeks:

Heather stitch on paper

Heather was just beginning one her stunning stitched works on paper. You can see the vibrant blue tones she’s painted the paper and the start of the stitching.

Frans Stumpwork in progress

Fran was meticulously creating stumpwork elements for a project called A Siennese Treasure. This is from a class by Alison Cole at the South Australian Guild’s Summer School

PrueParterre Canvas work

Prue was working on her own canvas work design called A Kitchen Garden. Her parterre design and the summery but soft colours give it the relaxing quality of a real garden. You’ll be able to see the finished work at the Guild’s Spring Exhibition at the Albert hall from 27-29 September.

Detail of Elvis Panda blanket

Elvi was nearly finished the cutest panda baby blanket for a very special new addition to her family. It’s a kit from Windflower with easy stitching and applique. You’ll also be able to see this in the Spring Exhibition

Detail Tasmania Anne Ecclestone 1950s Semco tablecloth

Anne E is a magnet for vintage embroidery as she’s passionate about saving these pieces and giving them a new lease of life. This piece is a 1950s Semco map of Australia – here’s the detail of Tasmania

Rosie Diane Lampe in progress

Rosie was finishing a piece her Mum started – it’s a cottage garden design from Diana Lampe’s book Embroidered Garden Flowers published in 1991.

Pat B was beading away on one of her own designs and making us all laugh with her stories about the latest crazy adventures of her dogs.

Enjoy!
