You may remember from my blog post of August 26th, that members of the Delaware Valley Sampler Guild chose A Petit Sampling Etui as their 2009 guild stitch-along project. Lynn D., one of their members, sent me photos of her stitched pieces which appear in that blog post.
A couple of weekends ago, the DVSG members had a weekend retreat in Ocean City, Maryland. Lynn sent me some more photos and wrote, "Our plan is to have our finishing session in February, and I'll definitely take lots of pictures there. It's been a lot of fun to see the differences in each piece."
The first photos are the work of Debi S. Debi's piece is particularly interesting because she changed some of the cross stitched areas to specialty stitches. Perhaps in a future posting, I can show a photo of Debi and enlargements of parts of some of her panels.
Debi's first panel was designed by Clara (The Stitching Parlor).
Her next panel was designed by Louise (Cherished Stitches).
This block was designed by Pam and Susan (Praiseworthy Stitches).
And last, but hopefully not least, is the block I designed.
The next four photos are of some of the guild members busily stitching away on their etuis in a beautiful surrounding.
Pat L. looks like she too is making great progress on her etui.
And here is Marnie B. comfortably situated on the lovely porch.
And last, but not least, is Kathy R. who also looks like she is making great progress.
Ladies, thank you for letting us see your wonderful work! As you well know, there is lots of stitching on this project, but I'm sure you'll agree it's worth the effort. I look forward to seeing your assembled etuis in February. Happy stitching!! Enjoy!!
A Petit Sampling Etui is a limited-edition collaboration project from the four companies mentioned above. More details and photos are posted at all of our websites. Only 2000 charts were printed. When those are gone, no more will be printed.
