I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.
Today’s stitch was inspired from a poster I saw for the “Bike for Beck – Beckfest 2015” which is being held here in Cleveland on May 31st. The pattern used to depict the hills is really interesting. I looked through a few books and found the Brighton Stitch, which was adapted to look like the pattern in the poster 🙂
The sample was stitched using two different colors of Burmilana. I stitched the model in horizontal rows changing colors as I went across the row. You do need to use at least two different colors for the pattern to show. I could also see this being used for mountains, change one of the green threads for a pale blue to represent sky. Just a thought! Here is the poster,
When out and about look for patterns, then see how you can put the pattern into stitches. Let me know what you come up with!
This next piece was stitched by my friend Cheryl Roler Timko. It is an Annie Lane canvas, “A Full Bodied Birdeaux”, stitches chosen by Carolyn Hedge Baird and Cheryl.
I love the necklace 🙂
This weekend I saw some Canada Geese and their babies. Now this is not unusual here, Canada Geese live in Cleveland year round, but I did get a photo of them 🙂
Of course I have to show you this weeks photo of Stimpy,
Well folks that’s all for today. Have a wonderful Stitchy week. I am heading to Stan Hywet tomorrow for another class. This time our teacher is Rozelle Hirschelft and she is teaching her three-dimensional Calla Lily. Stay tuned to hear all about it!
