Stitch Along Gallery - January 2015
Great to see Barbara and Jennifer joining in with the stitch along this month. I hope some of your others will too. Yes, welcome back Amanda and Carol is joining us too. If you missed the rules you can find them below
Gallery Week One
Barbara Frohne sent in a photo for the gallery. She has chosen black for the dark and two wonderful greens for cools. Pretty!
Jennifer Houlden has also sent in a photo. I love those variegated threads! Perfect. You can read more about Jen's selection on her blog.
My selection is a black (that almost reads grey) for the dark and blues for my cool color. I also chose variegated threads to work with. You can read more about it on my blog post.
Amanda Maxwell also joined in for the new challenge. With two new Grandbabies last year, I hope she keeps up <grin> Here are her fabrics and threads.
Carol Esch also joined us this month. Here are her fabrics and threads.
Week Two Gallery Pieces
Carol sent along two images of her block. A close up:
and the finished block. I can see she had a lot of fun.
Barbara also sent in her block. She used a variegated thread which worked really nicely.
Jennifer made her block like a wreath, cool idea!. She blogged about her challenge entry, you can read about it here: Jennifer's blog
And here is my colorful block. Read about my haha! moments in my blog post
Amanda's sent in her week two stitch along piece. It is amazing how each and every block is different!
Week Three Gallery Pieces
Barbara was really prompt at getting her pieces done this week. She made the second block and cut up all the pieces.
Amanda cut up her block and sent me in a photo.
Jennifer also sent in her pieces, a little different than the rules, but that's just fine. The whole idea is to get a little creative. Check out her blog post.
And here is my pieces which you can read about on my block post. Can you see the booboo I made?
Week Four Gallery Pieces
What a lot of fun this turned out to be. Everyone did something a little different which is totally awesome!
Barbara added colored borders to her piece and used the extra bits to make two greeting cards. Great idea.
Amanda bound hers off using two different fabrics to make as a pot holder, but she says, she probably won't use it as such just in case it gets dirty.
Jennifer sent in her piece. She veered off the foundation block and came up with her own creation. You can read about it on her blog.
And mind is all complete with a different kind of binding. Check out what I did on my latest post.
Another challenge is done and I'm looking forward to beginning a new one. Hope you'll be joining me.
