Here's some we did earlier . . .

. . . and brought for a display at our November meeting.
There's such a variety of talent in the group, from cross stitch to patchwork, from stumpwork to free machine embroidery. Some people do kits, some people use tyvek, shrink plastic, angelina, dissolvable fabric. Some do canvaswork, some play with all the gizmos - soldering iron, heatgun, etc.
This month we had a hands-on session, choosing one of 5 stitches to play around with - buttonhole, chain stitches, couching, heringbone and knots. We worked to a pattern taken from one of the Macclesfield Silk Museum print blocks, a paisley shape. The aim is to create a hanging from them and give it to a local hospice.
Blogger wont put the other 3 pics in for me, so I'll try again later.

Very impressive. I'm always interested in what other groups do. Sometimes I find myself challenged to try something they've done. Well done blog, Barbara.
