Stitches for Effect: Notebooks

Stitches for Effect by Beth Robertson & suzanne Howren
Lately I have been busy stitching on different projects, but I had nothing much to add to my blog as one of the project completed is a gift which of course I can't show you right now as she has still not seen it yet. I have also been working on these stitch notebooks: The Sky's the Limit, Quilting Bee and The Menagerie, stitching faithfully all my little samples, all 36 of them. Since I can't really show you all the samples for obvious reasons, here are a photo of the 3 big binders I have put together with all my class notes. I have also scanned 4 little samples out of the 36 to give you an idea, as if you did not already know how a little sample looks like. I told you that I did not have much to show you and I meant it :-(

(4 samples taken from the 3 stitch notebooks above)
I have just signed up for the next cyberclass with Beth and Suzanne at Shining Needle Society. The upcoming notebook will be about Christmas stitches and I am really looking forward to that one. That class will start on April 1st and end on May 31st.
I am also currently working on Hollyhock House. I thought that this month's assignment might be about laying some bricks for the house, but noooooooooo, we are doing the OTHER flower pot with flowers, the one on the other side of the house. Again, I have not much to show you as it would be exactly the same thing as my last photos. How exciting is that? I will however add a photo when both pots and flowers are completed. I bet you all can't wait for that one :-)
The other day I have seen a lovely little bargello pillow and I instantly fell in love with it and of course I just had to do it. I have just received the supplies for it and will soon be working on it as there is no way that I can resist that project much longer. From the same designer I also saw some lovely coasters so I will also be doing those. I will talk more about all of those things when I start working on them.
I am also starting a cyberclass with Judy Souliotis. The project is called Floral Rondel and is lovely. There are also lots more projects that I will soon be starting and will talk about them later on, so if you don't hear from me, that does not mean that I am not stitching, just that at that particular time I don't have anything ready to show you, but I will post photos of all those projects and give info as soon as I have something for you all.
So now a bit of cleaning up is due before I start working on ............... something (grinning)

I am looking forward to seeing many of these new "goodies"!

Hi Pierrette,

Well sounds like you are having fun and HOPEFULLY you'll have something to share with us soon! :-)

I also haven't had much to share as I'm basketweaving away on three projects! Sigh... Hopefully I'll be able to share something this weekend. :-)

These little samples are just delightful and such a change as there will be no 'finishing' to do with them or having the task of choosing a frame and mount.

They are also rather cute and I look forward to seeing more of them and was wondering how many there will be in total

Wow you are keeping busy! Keep us posted on your progress, as I love to know what people are working on even if I can't see it!

This is totally random, I know, but did you ever get Angelina framed? If so, may we see a picture, please?

Love to Stitch 99 said...


This is a very long story but I will spare you all the details and tell you that it is finally at the framer so I suppose that I should get Angelina back in a couple of weeks and will post a photo then.
