My newest designs are all counted canvas as I have been having great fun with all of the stitches and the challenge of learning new stitches and techniques. With the adoption of the management of The Stitchers’ Village a little over a year ago, I have not had the time to devote to designing thay I would like. So, the inspiration of some new stitches was motivation. Here are two that are finalized – Welcome and Recycle
A third – Conserve – is nearly done (sneak peek below). These three are 5×7″ on 18 count canvas and use 3 colors of thread and the fourth, Flower Basket is off to the framer. It uses 5 colors and is 4×12″ on 18 count.
The Halloween stitch along for The Stitchers’ Village got under way on Friday with the kick-off chat. The chart is “Witch Parking Only”. Saturday afternoon, Cheryl from Glendon Place, who so generously designed and donated the chart, hosted a chat and it was fun.
The social side of The Stitchers’ Village has now become very interactive! The old forum has not officially ended, but is expected to very soon. The new module for socializing with fellow Villagers is http://stitchersvillage.com/village. it is very similar to other social network platforms and will allow posting of WIP’s, finishes, etc. You will also want to make certain that you have signed in for membership on The Stitchers’ Village main site so that you receive the newsletter, etc. You must be a member of TSV to join the social side.
I am stitching the Moonflower Designs ornament for the Stitchers Village ornament issue. The fabric is actually one of 2011 new colors from Picture This “Diva”. Look for the ornament issue in November available to Stitchers’ Village members only!! There are ornments from several designers.
