A few more tiny stitches

Hi everyone,
I managed to get a few more stitches into From Molehill to Mountain. Still playing around with the colours and placement. Thought it needed more green so I chose green as the backcolour for this block and moved the block to the top left hand corner instead of below the blue block and moved the motifs around. Hope this works if it doesn't there is going to be lots of unstitching and some very unsavoury mutterings.

 I was hoping to share with you some photos of the Members exhibition at the Embroiderers' Guild of South Australia, but I found out that there is a strictly no photos policy. There are over 300 entries executed in lots of techniques on display. The colours are dazzling and the standard of work is very high indeed. Congratulations to all members who contributed and to the dedicated members who set up and are making this display such a success. I have lots of friends who have entered pieces including Lisel with a beautiful mulitcoloured sampler almost a metre square, Anne, with a ANG cyberclass canvas work piece called Journey by David McCaskill, Denise with a pretty interpretation of my canvas work class piece Twisted threads and Margaret with a beautiful chinese silk embroidery of a coloured parrot. Just to name a few. If you are in Adelaide hurry to Hughes Street, Mile End and enjoy the display.

The very clever Kathy Rees has been designing some more and I enjoyed Tahiti so much that I couldn't resist buying her latest piece Rio. The colours are very bright and happy. Here is a photo of the design. It is stitched using Overdyed Vineyard Silks by Threadworx so the shine will be beautiful.

Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
