September Show & Tell

Here is the latest batch of spiffy handcrafted items from our talented members:

Amy P stitched this outstanding bargello piece.
It looks like it's the insert to a simple box,
but it's really a piggybank!

 Becky M stitched these two cute holiday ornaments on felt.
The simple-to-do finishing makes them all the more appealing.

Becky also stitched this clever cat sampler,
beautifully accented by the black-and-gold frame.

This striking Peace pillow was stitched by Julie,
one of our newest members.
She is Becky's daughter!

Ruth is our needlework rescuer.
She acquired this stunning beaded piece...

...this beautiful example of Romanian lace...

...and this psychedelic wonder from the '70's
which she has plans to restore.

 Pat B stitched these identical (except for the finish) birds...

And this hardanger heart piece
from the 2014 Nordic Needle retreat.
It's taped to the metal heart-shaped box.

Last but certainly not least,
Wendy L finished an impressive whitework sampler
and this lovely canvaswork music box insert
taught at our May workshop.

Way to go, ladies!
Until next time, keep stitching.
